        They did go out in the group stages in 2018.

        But the fact that Low was compelled to bring back Mueller and Hummels is a sign that the new generation hasn't matched expectations.

            I know it got chalked off but WTF were the Germany defence doing there? There looked to be six players within about ten yards of each other and Mbappe had the entire opposition half to run into.

              Arse. Although it definitely was offside.

                Pogba played Mbappe offside there.

                    That was deffo a penno on Mbappe.

                    Possibly also a red card because Hummels was last player?

                      I was going to say the Euro 2000 lot but had to reluctantly remind myself that is probably "some years" ago.

                        kimmich is a professional athlete, with an extreme level of control over his movements, he kicked hernandez in the face because he wanted to. His foot was 8 feet away from the ball when he made contact with his face. momentum doesn't explain what happened there. Gosens should also have got a straight red card for dangerous play, and god only knows what rudiger thought he was doing there, but it really looks like he bit pogba.

                          Not if it is a penalty and a genuine attempt to make a tackle still, no?

                            Not with free-kicks like Kané's they won't

                              How fast is Mbappe? There have been times when it's looked like Germany defenders are running in slow motion.

                                Yes (meaning not a red card in those circumstances, so as to avoid the "triple penalty" (penalty, red card, suspension) ).

                                  Glad I don't follow top-flight football. This bullshit is unbearable.

                                    Looked like he gave him a purple nurple as well

                                      Are the French the only side other than England who use their national anthem as a chant?

                                        Dunno if it is on the general feed, but German telly feed I am watching have a clip of Ruedinger doing a Luis Suarez on Pogba's back in the first half

                                          DId you not see him there with his two fingers under his nose, looking like he was going to try both nostrils at the same time. I was screaming at the tv to turn away before it was too late!

                                            We might as well do away with linesmen if they are no longer to make offside calls.

                                              They do, they just often wait for the move to reach it's end before signalling if required.

                                                That's a fair point that I'd not thought of. Why don't they do this with club football then? Man Utd must be hard to spot with red shirts, white shorts and black socks. Surely they would be more visible if they wore all red...

                                                  Sane does all the hard work in fending off a couple of tackles, he rolls it out wide and it is waywardly smashed across the face of goal. Most un-German.

                                                    Wales fans have started giving ours an extra airing late in games which started with this.
