We have rated the German performances against France on a scale from 1 to 5.
|Leroy Sané impressed last night.|
After Germany's 1-2 defeat against France last night, we have rated the performances of the German players on a scale from 1 to 5 - with 1 being the worst grade while 5 is the best.
Manuel Neuer - 3/5
Made a couple of good saves to stop attempts from Kylian Mbappé. Couldn't be blamed for either of Griezmann's goals.
Thilo Kehrer - 3/5
Looked a bit nervous at times, but generally delivered a convincing performance in his first start for Germany.
Matthias Ginter - 3/5
Delivered a solid performance in the German central defense. Missed a couple of good opportunities at the other end.
Niklas Süle - 3/5
Replaced the injured Jerome Boateng and added stability to the defense. Couldn't keep up with Mbappé in a situation in the beginning of the second half and lucky to see Neuer save the shot from the Paris Saint-Germain star.
Mats Hummels - 2/5
Erratic performance by the Bayern München veteran. Looked solid at times, but also made mistakes. Was unlucky that the referee awarded France a dubious penalty after his duel with Blaise Matuidi.
Nico Schulz - 3/5
Came in on the left and did well. Surprised the French team with his speed and impressively managed to keep up with Kylian Mbappé in a one-on-one situation.
Toni Kroos - 3/5
Had a strong first half and took the responsibility to score from the penalty spot. Disappeared a bit after the break.
Joshua Kimmich - 3/5
Found Leroy Sané with a superb pass midway through the first half. Apart from that, he didn't stick out much, but fought well in the middle of the park.
Serge Gnabry - 3/5
Combined well with the rest of the German offense. Didn't always succeed with his actions, but had the courage to try something on his own.
Leroy Sané - 4/5
Justified Joachim Löw's decision to put him in the starting eleven. Provoked the Grman penalty and showed how big a threat he can be although he lacked a little killer instinct.
Timo Werner - 2/5
Worked hard and took advantage of his pace at times, but never really looked threatening.
Julian Draxler - N/A
Julian Brandt - N/A
Thomas Müller - N/A
