Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry provided the only goal of the match in Germany’s 1-0 victory over Romania, but was not concerned about how his squad captured points from Romania, only that they got the full three.
“The three points are important for us. In the end, it doesn’t matter how we got them. In the second half, we ran so many counterattacks and left it open until the end,” said Gnabry (as captured by the DFB). “We made life difficult for ourselves. We played well and created the chances well, but we just have to do the thing. But it was definitely not a step backwards from the Iceland game.”
Joachim Löw knows his team could have probably done much better with its scoring, but the outgoing manager came away satisfied nonetheless.
“Romania was certainly the better team compared to Iceland. Overall, we worked very well against the ball today, we had some very good combinations,” said Löw (as captured by the DFB). “If there’s anything to criticize, it’s the way we made the most of our chances. We could have made the game easier for ourselves. But the important thing is that we got the three points, so we can be satisfied.”
