german u21 top of table after victory in bosnia

Stefan kuntz was relieved, but not satisfied: germany’s U21 team has taken over the top spot in the european championship qualifiers. The DFB selection won 2:0 (1:0) against bosnia-herzegovina in zenica.

Luca kilian from paderborn (29). Minute) and lukas nmecha from wolfsburg (80.) provided the goals for the 2017 european soccer champions. With six points from two games, germany leads its qualifying group. The european championships will be held in slovenia and hungary in 2021. The nine group winners of the qualification are sure to be there.

"If we learn from it, it has been good that we had such a game. We didn’t play well," said kuntz. "We didn’t do what we set out to do."

The kuntz selection nevertheless lived up to its favoritism against the previous leaders in bosnia, but had to tremble at times in the final phase. In contrast to the 1-1 draw in the friendly match in spain on thursday, the hosts clearly dominated the game for a long time, but in the second half, bosnia came on strongly. Due to a lack of chances and some inaccuracies, the german team made life more difficult for itself than it needed to be. "You have to take the three points, that’s what it was all about in the end," said goalkeeper kilian.

Germany could have taken the lead after only two minutes. The recovered robin hack, a three-goal scorer in the 5-1 opening qualifying win over wales, failed to score with a goal against the post. Just like the 1-1 final score in the rematch of the european championship final against the spanish on thursday, a defender scored in bosnia as well.

After germany’s third corner had been blocked, tim handwerker pulled away from the edge of the penalty area. His shot was blocked by goalkeeper vladan kovacevic, kilian dusted it off. "That was a great feeling to score," said kilian.

For the SC paderborn defender, who recently made his bundesliga comeback against FC bayern and robert lewandowski, it was his first goal in his fourth U21 appearance. After an input from handwerker (38).) or on a shot by johannes eggestein shortly before the interval whistle (45.+1) the guests missed the 2:0. Bosnia didn’t pose a serious threat yet, but they also had chances on the counterattack or after DFB mistakes.

Bosnia showed more courage after the change of sides. The kuntz team wasted several half chances to make it 2-0. The hosts failed to head in schalke’s goalkeeper markus schubert (73).), who was preferred to lennart grill (1. FC kaiserslautern) had received. The team from the balkans risked more for the desired equalization, not much was missing. But the substitutes mergim berisha as a preparer and nmecha provided for the decision. Kuntz had shown a lucky hand.
