Wolf Christoph Voss and Lothar Matthaus commentate on the European Championship match between the Netherlands and Poland. You can make a comparison with the German national team. The comment sparked outrage at the headquarters of the German Football Association. You can access your smartphone.

aThere have been enough reasons for criticism in recent years. The German national football team rarely played good matches, especially in tournaments. With Julian Nagelsmann, the national coach, appointed in September 2023, things have gone increasingly better. The DFB pick has been compelling since the spring.

She impressively showed how capable she is again last Friday in a 5-1 win over Scotland at the start of the European Championship. Then she finally became effective in front of goal.

Lack of effectiveness – in a 0-0 draw in the warm-up match against Ukraine, 27 shots were not enough to score a goal – has always been a common issue. Strikers around Kai Havertz, Niklas Volkrug and their partners were the focus of discussions. That was also the case on Sunday, although Havertz and Volkrug both scored against the Scots.

“The Germans know the problem,” says the commentator.

In the sixth minute of the match, Vos and Matthews, who usually commentate together on Sky, spoke about the situation in the Orange team’s attack after a failed behavior by Memphis Depay, the Dutch striker. “This is the one thing, Lothar, that the Dutch probably lack at the moment to be among the best in the world,” he said. “We've already discussed that once: a central striker of international caliber – the Germans know the problem.” A commotion – and it seemed to have disturbed the crowd at the German Football Association camp.

According to Bild information, assistant coach Sandro Wagner picked up his cell phone and wrote to Foss directly via the WhatsApp application. Then an apology was made. “It was said that the screaming on the home floor was loud,” Voss told Bild. “I hope the boys will return the favor and perform on a world-class level.”

“Then I can tell you that we received news from the German camp, where there was a slight irritation, that we had problems in the attacking position – that is, problems with approaching and leaving – with the Dutch national team compared to the German national team,” Vos said in the live broadcast. Of course that's nonsense too.” He tried to make amends and pointed out that the German team had completely different options in terms of width and top with Havertz, Volkrug, Undav and Maxi Paire. “Greetings to Herzogenaurach,” Vos said.
