Only three minutes of spectacle in Bologna: Italy and Germany share the points

In an unexciting game, Italy and Germany shared the points in the Nations League: 1-1. Around seventy minute, the game lived up for a while, but that‘s what’s most said.
Both teams entered with a star formation, which has already had a lingering season as a club. This was reflected in the field game, as there were few highlights to note in Bologna. Sierd de Vos, commentator at Ziggo Sport, said it aptly after 75 minutes: If you finish this game, you have earned a glass of prosecco.
Before halftime, Germany had the better part of the game, although opportunities were scarce. In the second act, Italy drew the initiative more towards itself, although that did not result in great opportunities either. It wasn‘t until Wilfried Gnonto, who is on the radar at PSV, came in on behalf of the home team that something happened. The offside player of FC Zurich first missed an opportunity and not much later gave a ready-to-use cross over Lorenzo Pellegrini, who only had to tap inside. Germany’s response came three minutes later. Joshua Kimmich valued a German rebound and shot the equalizer behind Gianluigi Donnarumma.

There was no more score afterwards, leaving Italy and Germany both a point in the game. Leader in Group 3 after the first round of play is Hungary, which defeated England at home earlier on Saturday with 1-0.

The Germans are awake! ☕ Joshua Kimmich makes it, after Timo Werner seems to hit the ball with his hand first 👀 #ZiggoSport #NationsLeague #ITAGER
