Germany boss identifies Chelsea star who was responsible for the EUROS England defeat.

Germany boss Joachim Low highlighted Chelsea striker Timo Werner’s poor finishing regarding their 2-0 loss to England in the Euro 2020 round of 16 on Tuesday.

It was Werner’s first start in the competition.

Before this game, the 25-year-old had frequently been used from the bench, with Kai Havertz, Thomas Muller, and Serge Gnabry all ahead of him in the pecking order.

So was very startling that Werner started in the first place.

“We need depth up front,” Low explained about Werner’s inclusion in the starting line-up against England before the game (via Sport1).

“Timo Werner can hurt the defense with his speed.”

The plan was to stretch England’s back-three with Werner’s speed, which he did pretty well.

But when Werner had to complete a big opportunity created by his Chelsea teammate Havertz in the first half, he failed.

Low, whose occupancy as the national team manager ended with the loss, insisted that Werner’s miss, along with Muller’s, cost the team the game.


“We didn’t take opportunities of the two great chances we had with [Thomas] Muller and Werner,” the Germany boss said in his post-match press conference (via BBC).

“You need to take advantage of them if you want to succeed.

“The English team did that.

“We were not clinical enough or effective enough.”

From Chelsea’s point of view, Werner’s finishing predicaments should also emphasize the need for a new No.9 in this transfer window.

The former RB Leipzig ace absolutely has the pace and quality to create spaces in the final third. But the signs so far imply he is too erratic in terms of converting his opportunities to be the primary goalscorer.

To be fair, Low had a case. Both Germany and England made just two and three big opportunities throughout the game, respectively.

Being clinical ultimately led England to success.
