Joshua Kimmich: "Too bad we couldn't score"

Joshua Kimmich thought Germany did a lot of things right against Ukraine, even if they didn't score.

Germany created plenty of chances in Monday's friendly against Ukraine, but failed to convert them into goals as they were held to a 0-0 draw.

Speaking on German television after the match, Joshua Kimmich expressed his disappointment at the lack of a goal, saying he thought Germany put in a good performance overall.

“We played a good game. The Ukrainians couldn't complain if we had won 1-0 or 2-0. It's difficult to score against an opponent who defend so well. We had a lot of very good chances, which is not a given against a team that play 5-4-1,” said Kimmich.

"We had a good start to the game, won a lot of possession and were present in the box. Too bad we couldn't score. You could see we wanted to win. We need to keep it up and hopefully get a win in the last friendly."

On Friday, Germany will take on Greece in their last friendly before the European Championship.
