Jamal Musiala was one of the best Germans against Spain.

But his missed top chance robs the young national player of his sleep.

Al-Khor - Hope for the German national team at the 2022 World Cup: Thanks to the hard-fought 1-1 draw against Spain and support from Costa Rica, the DFB team can hope to make it into the round of 16 (read here how it works).

Germany - Spain: Musiala misses a huge chance

Bayern jewel Jamal Musiala proved once again in the do-or-die game that he can drive the flick eleven at the age of 19.

In addition to his usual playful class, he also went ahead with an aggressive basic attitude.

But his performance had one big flaw: the missed big chance in the 73rd minute.

After a fine pass from substitute Leroy Sané, Musiala only had Unai Simon ahead of him - and failed with an unplaced shot at the Spanish keeper.

A cross pass to Niclas Füllkrug, who ran with him, would have been the better and right option, Musiala knows that himself.

Jamal Musiala can be proud of his performance against Spain.

But his missed chance gives him a headache.

World Cup 2022: Musiala struggles with missed great opportunity - "I have to do it"

After the game he analyzed himself critically: "I have to keep my head up and pass the ball or shoot in the goal." And quarreled: "I think it will be a difficult night for me.

I have to do it.” Fulkrug equalized himself ten minutes later by simply snatching the ball away from Musiala.

The Bremen player doesn't have Musiala's exceptional footballing talent, but gave the youngster a lesson in consistency and determination in front of goal and hammered the ball under the crossbar with the full instep so untenably that Thomas Müller later paid homage to him as an "incredibly cool guy".

World Cup 2022: Füllkrug saves DFB-Elf against Spain with a violent shot

Füllkrug got the necessary self-confidence with his ten Bundesliga goals.

Musiala has netted nine times in the Bundesliga, but you can't blame him for a weak finish.

The 19-year-old simply can't keep a cool head in the really big games, he lacks the experience for that.
