In Germany, the amazement was obviously total after this disillusion. “What a shame!” =Sport Bild thus designates this rout, described as “embarrassing bankruptcy”. “With a pathetic appearance, the German national team hugged to the end and lost 1-2 to North Macedonia. Yes, North Macedonia, a football dwarf, 65th in the FIFA rankings, where only four players play in the best European leagues “.
Same story on the bi-weekly side Kicker who spoke of a “bad surprise”: “Unbelievable but true. The German national team loses the home game against North Macedonia”. For the media, “everything was missing and that is why the German national team rightly lost. The German players have never managed to silence Goran Pandev, 37 – yes, 37 (!)”.
The Frankfürter Allgemeine Zeitung Judge even “limits” the penalty awarded to Leroy Sané and regrets the big opportunity missed by Chelsea striker Timo Werner at the end of the match.
Finally, for Die welt the success of the Macedonians is “deserved facing a team ” unable to create chances, especially in the second half “.
