Switzerland mocked in the 92nd minute, Germany makes it 1-1 and is first. Italy breathes a sigh of relief

The Italians’ Switzerland surprises everyone but is defeated in the 91st minute. At the Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt, Yakin’s boys risk inflicting their first disappointment on the Germans: Ndoye puts the Swiss ahead, Fullkug equalizes in full injury time.

Nagelsmann’s team had certainly approached the challenge better and had also managed to break the deadlock after 17′: Andrich’s shot from distance, the ball bounced in front of Sommer who allowed himself to be fooled by his post. Luckily, Orsato and his referee team come to the aid of the Inter goalkeeper: a clear foul by Musiala on Aebischer was reported, the goal disallowed.
Thus, the Swiss took courage and found an all in all deserved 1-0, also thanks to the goal that was almost doubled by the unleashed Ndoye a few minutes later.

The second half is a monologue from the Germans, but without particular conviction. This is also thanks to the attitude of the opponents, who always accept one-on-ones and show great physical condition, with all-out pressure that creates big problems for the home team. The opportunities are very few: until the 70th minute Sommer only has to block a central shot from Musiala, then Kimmich has the good ball but Akanji sacrifices himself and saves him. Nagelsmann changes mid-defense and prefers Beier to Fullkrug (who comes in shortly after together with Sané); Yakin instead changes the entire trident but does not include AC Milan player Okafor.

It is the most delicate moment of the match and Switzerland scores the match point in the 84th minute; Vargas makes it 2-0 but starts a moment early following Amdouni’s assist and is caught offside. The response is entrusted to Havertz, who hits the header following a corner kick and chips the top of the crossbar. Practically the best opportunity with five minutes to go, while at the other end Neuer had to perform a miracle on Xhaka. When it all seems over, Fullkrug’s “big boss” appears to put things back in order: Raum’s millimetric cross, the Borussia Dortmund striker stands out and leaves Sommer no chance. good news for Italy too, even if Switzerland could be a very difficult opponent.
