League of Nations: Germany corrects Italy

After three draws in the League of Nations, Germany dominated Italy 5-2 on Tuesday in Mönchengladbach, with a brace from Timo Werner.

This defeat of the Azzurri is however not a big surprise. It is part of the process of rebuilding the team by Alberto Mancini, after the shock of the elimination of the World Cup in Qatar, in a play-off against North Macedonia.

Mancini started a total of twelve players for the Azzurri, including three on Tuesday against Germany.

This prestigious success will on the other hand give air to his German counterpart Hansi Flick and his men, who had not shown much in their first three matches of the competition (1-1 each time against the Italy, England and Hungary).

The Mannschaft took control of the match from the start and conceded almost no chances. Joshua Kimmich materialized this domination from the 10th minute to open the scoring (1-0).

Ilkay Gündogan, on penalty, doubled the bet before the break, after a “stroller” from Alessandro Bastoni on Hofmann in the area (2-0, 45th + 3).

Thomas Müller scored the third German goal with a superb uncontrolled recovery from 15m, on a ball badly repelled by the defense of the Nazionale (3-0, 51st).

Timo Werner widened the gap by taking the tip of the foot in the six meters a cross from Gnabry (4-0, 68th), and reoffending from the penalty spot a minute later (5-0, 69th).

Wilfried Gnonto, the 18-year-old nugget unearthed at FC Zurich by Mancini, saved the honor at the end of the match by taking back a ball pushed back at his feet by Manuel Neuer (5-1, 78th), and Alessandro Bastoni victoriously took over a corner of the head in additional time, to soften the note (5-2, 90th + 3
