German coach Joachim Low has said he is ‘sorry’ as his side crashed out of Euro 2020 after a 2-0 loss against England at Wembley. He accepted responsibility for the poor performance of the team in the tournament. Germany managed just one win against Portugal while losing to France and England. Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane scored in the second half to put the final nail in the coffin.
As for Germany, this was their first knockout loss to England in a major ournament in 55 years. They squandered a number of chances against England and only have themselves to blame. Thomas Muller missed a golden opportunity when he missed a one on one with keeper Jordan Pickford.
“The disappointment runs very, very deep. I’m sorry that we disappointed our fans and didn’t spark the kind of excitement we wanted. I take responsibility for our elimination, no ifs or buts,” German coach Joachim Low said after his side crashed out of Euro 2020. “It’s been 15 long years with a lot of wonderful moments and, of course, some disappointments.”
“The team and the players have a bright future ahead of them. Good luck to Hansi Flick, I wish him all the best. My heart continues to beat black, red, and gold.” he added. “I’ve saved so many moments and images in my heart over the years. Not just the results, but the time spent together. We went through so much together, those are the moments you never forget.”
Low helped Germany win the World Cup in 2012 in Brazil. After 15 long years, he hands over the team to ex-Bayern coach Hansi flick. The end to Low’s tenure is a sad one with his german side crashing out of the group stage of the World Cup in 2016 as well as the Round of 16 of the Euros in 2020.
