Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller talks return to international play for Germany after Denmark draw

It was two years in the making, but Thomas Müller was back on the pitch for Germany.

Bayern Munich star Thomas Müller made his return to Germany and played an integral role for the squad during its 1-1 draw with Denmark.

Müller found the international scene “intense” and thought his squad was unlucky on the night.

“It was intense, I saw a lot of good things. In the second half, however, we also had a phase in which we couldn’t get into the duels. It’s hard to judge,” Müller said (as captured by Tz). “We didn’t get stuck into the challenges as well in the second half. Denmark were able to shake us off and got their goal. We had some incisive attacks and with a bit of luck, those two shots against the woodwork could have gone in.”

The only thing that really took away from this being a joyous occasion was that Germany conceded a 70th minute goal to Yussuf Poulsen, which put a damper on what should have been a great moment for Die Mannschaft.

“That’s frustrating, but it shows that this is punished at this level,” said Müller. “We have to learn the patience between offense and defense.”

With a bonafide leader like Müller in tow, hopefully that lesson can be expedited as the squad prepares for a rigorous group at the Euros.
