The digital version of the traditional newspaper “Bild” defined defeat like this: “Embarrassing”. The text brings harsh criticism to the selection. “With a pathetic performance, the German team was ashamed to the bone and lost 2-1 in Duisburg to North Macedonia. Yes, North Macedonia,” he wrote.
And do not stop there. Bild’s report continued with his analysis of the game and did not accept defeat. “The German game lacks determination and a ‘footprint’. A football rant as the 65th in the world ranking, in which only three players play in the main European leagues, manages to make the four-time world champion look ridiculous,” he wrote.
The website of the magazine “Kicker” was less harsh and called defeat a slip. On his main page, he pointed out that it was a ‘slip’ and a ‘bad surprise’. “The German team allowed themselves to slip into qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar: against North Macedonia, Germany lost 2-1.”
“Strange, but true. The German team lost the home game against North Macedonia 2-1. It was the last World Cup qualifying game under coach Löw,” the magazine published.
