Euro 2024 hosts Germany lost 1- 0 to Poland in a friendly in Warsaw on Friday, with Jakub Kiwor’s first- half thing piling further pressure on trainer Hansi Film. Poland’s palm was just their alternate over their neighbours in 22 games dating back to 1933, and left Germany with a single palm in four games since their disastrous World Cup crusade in Qatar. Kiwor headed in a corner interior through the first half to give his side the lead against a disorganised Germany defence, adding to Film’s problems ahead of coming time’s Euro on home soil.

Despite the” completely disappointing result”, Film said his side had time to get effects right.

“We are in a process and we are trying effects out” Film explained.” There is a long way to go until we’ll get there.”

“In June coming time, we’ll have a platoon that functions together.”

Wingback Robin Gosens, who just six days agone played for Inter Milan as they lost the titleholders League final to Man City 1- 0, said his side wanted to get Germany” into a spirit of sanguinity and to get the country behind us.”

“We know this can only be done through results, through palms.”

Poland captain Robert Lewandowski, who won the titleholders League with Bayern Munich under Film in 2020, said” it was not perfect. we tried to make Germany’s day delicate.”

Under fire for continued trial with the platoon stuttering, Film made nine changes from the platoon which drew 3- 3 with Ukraine on Monday in Bremen.

Only captain Joshua Kimmich and centre- reverse Antonio Ruediger remained, with Film handing 21- time-old central protector Malick Thiaw a debut as part of a back three.

Poland brought the energy beforehand and Jakub Blaszczykowski, making his 109th and final Poland appearance, had a shot blocked by Thiaw on the counter after 13 twinkles.

Jakub Blaszczykowski was substituted soon after, the 37- time-old entering a standing acclamation from both sets of suckers, after further than a decade playing in Germany for Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg.

The hosts continued the celebratory mood, taking the lead interior through the first half when Kiwor exfoliate West Ham protector Thilo Kehrer to head in a Piotr Zielinksi corner.

Germany upped the figure in the alternate half and looked to have a golden chance to equalise 10 twinkles in when Jan Bednarek was ruled to have handled in the box.

Poland were still granted a reprieve when the spot- kick was capsized on review, with VAR renewals showing inadequate contact with the Southampton centre- reverse’s arm.

Kimmich, who saved Germany’s blushes from the spot in injury time against Ukraine, tried from distance but his shot rattled off the bar.

Film made five attacking changes in the ending twinkles but Germany were unfit to find the thing.

While Germany have qualified for coming time’s Euro as hosts, questions remain for a side which has failed to convert its gift and coffers into on- field success since the 2014 World Cup palm in Brazil. Know More Latest Football News…
