Robin Gosens was the key player on both ends of the pitch, providing Germany with the sort of dynamic that was missing from the game against France. The man of the match led his country to its first victory at Euro 2020 .
Indeed, Germany played football that made the nation fall in love with Joachim Löw's man between 2006 and 2014. Quick and dynamic, Germany headed into the second half 2-1 up.

For some time, it appeared that the Germans would waver, throwing away a lead and a comfortable position in Group F. Sanches, in fact, would hit the post in the 78th minute that would have halved the lead and could have spelled trouble for the Germans.
"We couldn't get out of the pressure, but we improved," Portugal's João Moutinho said to ."We made it 4-2 and still got a ball against the post. But we have to keep working."That shot, however, woke up Die Nationalmannschaft headtopics.com
