Berlin: Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller is upbeat after Germany’s 3-3 draw with England in the UEFA Nations League. He said it won’t have an effect on their attitude heading into the FIFA World Cup. After falling behind, Kai Havertz of Chelsea scored twice as Germany rallied to tie England.
Ilkay Gundogan and Kai Havertz gave Germany a 2-0 lead early in the second half. However, England scored three goals in the space of just 12 minutes thanks to strikes from Harry Kane, Mason Mount, and Luke Shaw. Havertz took advantage of an error in goalkeeping by Nick Pope to earn a draw for Germany.
Germany’s 3-3 draw with England had nothing to do with the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, stated Muller.
“Today’s game is not relevant to our outlook. We are concentrating fully on the forthcoming World Cup in order to do justice to this German tournament team idea, “said Muller.
The 33-year-old stated that he didn’t care about any outside criticism of the German team and said they would put themselves in a good position for the upcoming World Cup.
“We will put ourselves in a good position for the World Cup, give everything, and we will see what we will get there in terms of sporting results,” the German added.
The four-time world champions will begin their World Cup campaign against Japan on November 23, before facing Spain in a heavyweight clash on November 28, and finally facing Costa Rica on December 2 to conclude their group stage.
