Veteran Thomas Muller, the Germany national team player, thanked interim coach Rudi Föller for his handling of the situation over the past few days and leading the team to achieve a moral victory over France on Tuesday 2-1 after the dismissal of former coach Hansi Flick.
The German Federation dismissed Flick from his position on Sunday after the humiliating loss at home to Japan 4-1, and assigned Fuller, the sporting director, to take charge of coaching the team in the match against France, in which Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane scored a goal at the beginning and the end, so that the world champions four previous times achieved an important moral victory after A series of losses.
Mueller said after the match: For us, it was clear that we ran a lot today. It’s been crazy the last three days. But congratulations to Rudy and his team on how they handled it, we did what we had to do, we worked hard and we got rewarded for it. We shouldn’t think too much about this victory, but for us it was a moral victory.
Germany, which won four of its last 17 matches before yesterday, is seeking to achieve great success before hosting the European Championship next year among its fans and hopes to regain its lost position among the major powers in the world.
