Germany Player Ratings

Germany fell to their worst-ever defeat in a competitive international game
Germany fell to their worst-ever defeat in a competitive international game

Manuel Neuer - 4/10

There was nothing that he could have really done about any of the first five Spain goals. For the sixth, he should have been more decisive, and come out to stop the ball at Gaya's feet, after the left-back's heavy first touch.

Matthias Ginter - 4/10

Ginter could not deal well enough with the combination of Gaya and either Ferran Torres or Olmo. He was often left isolated against multiple Spanish attackers, that left him completely exposed.

Niklas Sule - 4/10

Sule only remained on the pitch for the first half, after which he was replaced by Jonathan Tah. When he was on the pitch, Spain scored off two set-pieces, which was because of an organisational issue that he should have taken responsibility to sort out.

Robin Koch - 3/10

Koch had a really poor game in defence for Germany. He was caught between trying to stay deep and holding a compact line, and being aggressive in the tackle. Ultimately, he did neither, and got picked off by some excellent Spanish attacking moves.


Phillipp Max - 4/10

Max struggled to deal with the pace and technical ability of Ferran Torres throughout the game.

Toni Kroos - 4/10

Kroos could not offer Germany any control in midfield. He owas overpowered by the likes of Rodri and Koke.

Ilkay Gundogan - 2/10

Gundogan's passing was awful in this game. He also let Rodri run off him and score from a corner.

Leon Goretzka - 3/10

Starting as the most advanced midfielder, Goretzka neither created enough chances for the attackers, nor did he offer Kroos and Gundogan any protection against a midfield that was overrunning Germany.

Leroy Sane - 3/10

Sane had a poor game, and looked disinterested in some parts of it. He didn't really show the pace that he has in his locker, and didn't dribble enough either.

Timo Werner - 4/10

Much like the other two German attackers who started this game, Werner had barely any service to him. The Germans had only two shots in the whole game, neither of which was on target.

Serge Gnabry - 5/10

Gnabry was barely involved in the attacking play for Germany. He thundered a superb strike from distance against the crossbar in the second half, but that was his only noteworthy contribution in the whole game.


Jonathan Tah - 4/10

He replaced Sule at half-time, but the German defence didn't get any better.

Florian Neuhaus - 5/10

Neuhaus made a couple of decent driving runs forward, but to no avail.

Luca Waldschmidt - 4/10


Waldschmidt barely had a touch of the ball after coming on to replace Sane.

Benjam Henrichs - 4/10

He replaced Werner with less than a quarter of an hour left to play. He was at fault for the sixth Spanish goal, as he didn't track Gaya's run, and then didn't put in a tackle after a heavy first touch from the Spaniard.
