Pay attention to Germany: Nagelsmann sends a message to everyone on his debut at Euro 2024

Going through the bookmakers’ odds, at the top of the list of the favorites to triumph at Euro 2024, the Germany had been excluded from the first three. England and France are tied at the top, followed by Spain and Portugal. And only there, a little further behind, was the national host. Evidently after this debut, a resounding 5-1 against Scotland, the ideas of the players will soon change too bookies. Because Julian Nagelsmann on the night in Munich, on the first night of the European Championship, sends a message to all the other big names: we are there for the final, we absolutely have to be there, too.

After all, Germany lacks nothing. The talent is there, and it’s stellar: Musiala flies and is MVP, Wirtz shines, Kroos remains and will always remain the master of midfield even when he hangs up his boots (by the way, we made an appeal to him in our report cards). Of course, Scotland tonight is a collective disaster, it lasts less than half, it crumbles after the expulsion at the end of the half. But the Mannschaft she is beautiful and prolific.

The idea of ​​the game is one of the hyper-modern ones, of a coach-scholar like Nagelsmann, perhaps a little outside the box, but on the other hand in football the boxes have been replaced by positions, relationships, spaces. Pay attention to Germany: should it confirm itself at these levels, it would be a very serious candidate. Waiting for more conclusive tests
