The international media reactions.

Great Britain:

»The Sun«:

»Superjoker Füllkrug keeps Germany's World Cup hopes alive.

On a night when we expected to wave goodbye to the Germans, they simply showed their age-old resilience.«

»Daily Mirror«:

»Germany's World Cup hopes are hanging by a thread despite the spirited draw.«

»The Guardian«:

»It turns out that Germany still has a number 9.

Her name is Niclas Füllkrug, he is 29 and his international career has lasted less than a month.

And when it mattered most, he was there.”

»The Independent«

: »A draw that probably shows why the burgeoning Spain will not win this World Cup and why Germany will not be eliminated.

It's such a fine line."

»The Times«:

»Niclas Füllkrug, the killer with the gap in his teeth, is pulling Germany out of a deep hole in Qatar.«



»Joker Füllkrug saves the DFB-Elf from the next damper.

The best: Well, when someone comes in like that, Germany in an extremely difficult situation, 0-1 behind, and then stays so determined and ice cold in front of the goal, he certainly deserves this award: Niclas Füllkrug!«




Full pitcher saves Germany point against Spain«



: »Full suspense in Group E after spectacular draw between Spain and Germany: Germany trembles and prays but is still not eliminated after 1-1 draw with Spain.

One point from two games, but it can still work out.

In any case, Füllkrug gave Germany back the color on their cheeks with his goal.

Last in the group, but still not without a chance.

Anything is possible in this group.«

»De Telegraaf«:

»Germany is still alive at the World Cup after a later rescue against Spain.

Germany playing Costa Rica last seems to be the lifeboat for our eastern neighbors.

The team hasn't made much of an impression at this World Cup so far."

»Voetbal International«:

»Germany got away with the horror of the conflict with Spain.

The Germans didn't win in the second group game either, but thanks to Niclas Füllkrug, the starting position doesn't look that bad, as crazy as it sounds.

A wonderful game of football ended in a draw.«



»Who is Niclas Füllkrug, Werder Bremen attacker, goalscorer against Spain?

The surprise on Hans-Dieter Flick's list for the World Cup in Qatar, Werder Bremen striker Niclas Füllkrug brings a breath of fresh air to the German squad with his personality.

His goal on Sunday evening saves Germany from disaster.«
