Playing against England at Wembley Stadium was never going to be easy for Germany — or Bayern Munich star Jamal Musiala.
Musiala, of course, had to make the difficult call on which country to play for after spending a good period of his life in England.
While the bright lights of that big stage in London might have made the youngster sweat a little bit, Musiala never got unnerved, nor lost his way even when things got tough.
Instead, Musiala kept fighting and pushing to make something happen — which helped the 19-year-old contribute (in one form or another) to Germany’s first two goals in what would end up a 3-3 draw.
Musiala’s persistence in a tough match was not lost on Germany manners Hansi Flick.
“He showed in many situations today what characterizes him. We need that. With every dribble, he creates a different game situation and makes the opponent open, which creates spaces that you can go into. That’s just what sets Jamal apart,” Flick said (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).
Musiala figures to be a key player for Flick at the World Cup later this year.
