Germany avoided, with the victory against Northern Ireland, that Netherlands snatched them the first position of the group of classification course to the Euro 2020. Serge Gnabry, the most valuable player with a 'hat-trick'
As it had promised the seleccionador Joachim Löw, and after the presence of Manuel Neuer low sticks in the goleada against Byelorussia (4-0), Ter Stegen was the guardameta title this Tuesday in front of Northern Ireland (6-1) and played the ninety minutes, making a good performance although without being able to leave his goal to zero by fault of the goal tempranero of Michael Smith.
The 'Mannschaft', in any case, sobrepuso to the initial fright and avoided so Holland snatched him the first position of the group clasificatorio course to the Eurocopa 2020, in which the germanos will be heads of series. The most stood out footballer of the party was Serge Gnabry, already consecrated like international star and that this Tuesday annotated a 'hat-trick' in front of the Irish.
His mate in the Bayern Munich, Leon Goretzka, annotated a doublet and the last goal was work of the midfield player of the Borussia Dortmund, Julian Brandt. The victory in front of Northern Ireland allows to Germany add a total of 21 points in this phase of classification for the Eurocopa 2020, by what will be in the bass drum of the favourites in the draw of the next 30 November.
Ter Stegen, by his part, went back to play an official party with Germany from 2017, and expects that his situation change progressively to better in the next months. For now already it is in equality of conditions with Neuer, and has the aim to surpass in performance to the captain of the Bayern Munich this season and, like this, win the titularity in the final stages of the Eurocopa 2020.
Ter Stegen, motivated to give the best of himself same
It will not have it at all easy given the predilection that feels Löw to Neuer, but at least will struggle for that. Marc-André ter Stegen, after the two parties of the stop FIFA of November, will return in the next hours to Barcelona to train beside the rest of his mates and prepare the party of LaLiga Santander 2019-20 of this Saturday, in front of the Leganés in Butarque.
Of face to the next commitments, Ter Stegen will try to achieve what up to now has cost him horrors in what it goes of season with the Barça: keep the goal to zero. Of course it will not depend only of him, but of the implication and defensive performance of the rest of the team.
