63’— 3-1! Timo Werner scores his second.
First half observations:
- Germany are playing well but are shaky defensively.
- Werner, Sane and Gnabry are an incredibly dangerous trio when on the counter.
- Leon Goretzka has been the best player on the pitch so far.
- In Löw we trust.
33’— Timo Werner scores for Germany. 2-1!
23’— Leroy Sane equalises for Germany.
12’— 1-0 to Ukraine! Roman Yaremchuk the goalscorer...
Kickoff: We’re underway in Leipzig!
One hour until kickoff: We have lineups! Jogi’s gone for a bunch of defenders yet again. Oh well, at least we have wingers this time.

I’ve been sitting here for the last 20 minutes trying to figure out a way to write a foreword for this game. I have nothing so far, because this is just so dumb. As a Bayern Munich fan, it’s really depressing, because we’re about to watch our players kill themselves on the pitch for a coach who has no clue, playing in a tournament that has no meaning, in front of a crowd that doesn’t exist.
Anyway, Germany face Ukraine. Niklas Sule is back in the squad. Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, and Leroy Sane will all probably start. Have fun talking about the game. If you’re not in Europe, you’re better off taking a nap.
