Germany will look to snap a three-game winless streak when they square off against Colombia in an international friendly on Tuesday.
Germany suffered a 1-0 loss to Poland in their last match and fan sentiment towards coach Hans Flick has worsened.
Jakub Kiwior’s header and some heroics from Wojciech Szczesny helped Poland secure an important win on Saturday. After falling behind in the 31st minute, Germany hit Poland with a flurry of attacks, but in the end it bore no fruit.
They fired as many as 26 shots, nine on target, in stark contrast to the two Poland mustered.
But in football, only the final score matters and the loss made it three games without a win for Flick. His project is just getting off the ground and he will need his players to start translating their overall dominance into goals if he is to regain the public’s trust.
Meanwhile, their opponents Colombia on Tuesday have hit the ground running under new manager Nestor Lorenzo. He took over from Reinaldo Rueda after Colombia failed to qualify for the World Cup and led the team to a six-match unbeaten run.
