UFWC Match #957
Belarus 0-2 Germany
8th June 2019
(12′) 0:1 L. Sané
(62′) 0:2 M. Reus
Until this match Belarus appeared in 4 title matches without having scored any goals and losing all of them – would that change this time? The first minutes somewhat looked like the belarussian squad wanted to change their catastrophic UFWC statistics.
So what to say? A close range goal from Manchester City’s Leroy Sané killed any dreams probably. With only 1 goal in lead both teams went to the break, Belarus not showing a lot more action and never setting Manuel Neuer under too much pressure – he even showed off his football qualities by winning a dribbling duel close to the corner flag …. and after roughly 1 hour Marco Reus netted the 2nd one for the reigning UFWC champions.
As also Germany’s head couch Joachim Löw missed the match due to a recent injury his substitute assistant coach Markus Sorg can claim to have never lost a UFWC title match in his head coaching career.
Next title match will happen on tuesday 11th June 2019 when Estonia will have their first ever UFWC appearance – will they be able to score some goals in their first match? Different to Belarus, who are now having impressive 0 – 13 goals conceded in 5 UFWC matches….
