In the summer, Germany’s U17 national team celebrated their European Championship title. Now the team faces a big challenge in the World Cup in Indonesia and is on the right track there as well.
Germany’s U17 national team celebrated its second victory in the second World Cup match in Indonesia. National coach Christian Walk’s side celebrated a well-deserved 3-1 win over New Zealand. The only goal the team conceded in the match came from a penalty kick in the 90th minute. Before that, the German national team was controlling the match in Bandung.
The German national team’s goals were scored by Dortmund’s Paris Brunner (45th + 7th place), Hoffenheim’s Max Morstedt (60th place), and the talented Bilal Yalchinkaya (81st place).
Thanks to the 3-1 win in the first match over Mexico, Germany has already qualified for the round of 16 after two matches. In the final group match against Venezuela on Saturday, a draw was enough to secure the group’s victory.
The only downside: The DFB has to worry about Asane Ouedraogo again. The Schalke player returned to the starting lineup after recovering from a thigh injury, but had to be substituted due to injury in the first half (43rd) when the score was 0-0.
