Germany ended the debut of Hansi Flick on the bench with a gray victory (0-2) over Liechtenstein, in a match in which the German team, despite the victory, did not convince with their game.
And that Flick, in his debut at the head of the “Mannschaft”, tried to breathe fresh air into the German team by granting ownership to the very young attacker Jamal Musiala, whom he knows perfectly from his time at Bayern Munich, where he did debut in June 2020 at just 17 years old.
A confidence that Jamala returned to the coach in the 41st minute with a sensational pass through to Timo Werner, who resolved with quality against local goalkeeper Benjamin Buchel to make it 0-1.
The goal rewarded the superiority of the German team, which despite going from more to less in the first half, had previously enjoyed several occasions to have opened the scoring, the clearest a header from side Roben Gosens at 20 minutes after it crashed on the post.
A short marker that did not seem to convince Hansi Flick who tried to refresh the attack with the entry into the quarter hour of the second half of Serge Gnabry for a gray Kai Havertz and of Marco Reus for the young Musiala.
But even so the German team did not manage to increase its offensive flow, which despite creating several clear occasions of danger, never overwhelmed Liechtenstein, as was foreseeable given the difference between the two teams.
A circumstance that did not prevent Germany from extending its lead on the scoreboard in the 77th minute with a goal from Leroy Sané who, after receiving a pass from Leon Goretzka in the area, made room with a feint to establish the final 0-2.
Gray triumph that allowed the German team to be in second place in group J with one point less than the surprising Armenia of the Spanish Joaquín Caparrós, who after winning the first three days this Saturday drew 0-0 in his visit to North Macedonia .
