Euro Qualifiers 2020 Germany vs Estonia Match Highlights – Germany suffered an early blow in their fixture against Estonia in the Euro 2020. The current Liverpool midfielder Emre Can got punished by a red card as he missed out on an easy pass from Sule and as he lost control of the ball, he put his body forward. Perhaps unlucky to see red for what was a poor tackle, but nevertheless a disappointing show. This Red Card is the fastest red card for a German in a competitive game.
After the red, it wasn’t easy for Germany to come into their game. They took a lot of time to finally form and get back their momentum. Ikay Gundogan had a spectacular game as he was able to pick up his team. He scored two deflected goals giving DFB the lead but his best moment was the assist for Timo Werner. It was a beautifully lofted ball showing off great vision and technique.

Niklas Sule also deserves applause for his work last night as he was the last layer of defence. He was strong on the ground (while misjudging a few air balls) and won the majority of his duels. The up and coming Kai Havertz was one of Germany’s most creative players, stringing moves in midfield even in the midst of Estonia’s rock-solid defence. Havertz was able to switch his roles perfectly adjusting to Estonia’s playstyle.

Euro Qualifiers 2020 Germany vs Estonia Match Highlights – Havertz performed well in both roles. He was the one who assisted the first goal that got a lucky deflection, which gave Germany the breather they were looking for. He sometimes got a bit lost in the Estonian pressing, but he ultimately showed his class in the end. These past few performances will definitely not have harmed his price tag, which is quite steep.
Luca Waldschmidt felt absent during the game. His only noteworthy effort was a long-range shot around the 24th-minute mark which was easily caught by the goalkeeper.
