Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is not thrilled with what he has seen from Germany — and we are not talking about the beatings that Bayern Munich used to put on his Gunners.

Following a largely unproductive four years since winning the 2017 Confederations Cup, Germany has been scuffling along and just not very good overall. Wenger though, has seen enough and think the players on the roster have lost “belief”:

Wenger has a point.

After Wednesday’s unfortunate and disappointing draw with Denmark, Germany was left — once again — grasping for answers of what went wrong. One defensive breakdown should not be the cause of a draw or a loss, but all too often these days, Die Mannschaft cannot must enough offense to offset even one score from the opposition.

The German national does have one more tune-up for the Euros when it takes on Latvia on June 7th. Unless Joachim Löw can re-discover the magic of the 2014 World Cup or the 2017 Confederations Cup, this could be a short and frustrating stint at the Euros.
