Germany is showing signs of revival after parting ways with coach Hansi Flick. The tank has won both of its recent matches under the guidance of new coach Julian Nagelsmann. However, against Mexico, the Tank continued to show existing problems, especially in defense.
In the 24th minute, Antonio Rüdiger scored the opening goal for Germany with a close-range header after a corner kick. However, Mexico soon equalized less than 15 minutes later thanks to Uriel Antuna.
The more Mexico played, the better it was after the equalizer. Meanwhile, the last 20 minutes of the first half showed the mediocrity of the Germans. They have 4 attacking midfielders, but they play incoherently and create too few opportunities. Moreover, the German defense left loopholes for the opponent to exploit.
Then whatever needs to happen must come. In the 47th minute, Erick Sanchez scored to help the North American team take a 2-0 lead. From here, Germany began to put all its effort into attacking, coach Nagelsmann made adjustments. And their efforts were rewarded equalizing goal 2-2 in the 51st minute by Niclas Füllkrug.
Germany controlled the ball after that but could not score a third goal and had to accept a 2-2 draw.
