Spain surprisingly loses to Ukraine
Switzerland brutally took the lead against Germany in the RheinEnergieStadion. Mario Gavranovic headed in the opening goal in the fifth minute on the edge of offside and Remo Freuler made it 0-2 barely twenty minutes later with a nice marker over Manuel Neuer.
Shortly afterwards, Timo Werner signed for the connection goal with a shot in the far corner, after which three goals were scored in the second half in a time frame of five minutes. After an interception, Kai Havertz ran towards Switzerland’s goal from the right in the 55th minute and placed the ball in the far corner.
The joy on the German side was short-lived, as Gavranovic fired in 2-3 from a rebound two minutes later. The final chord was shortly after that for Serge Gnabry, who also immediately scored the best goal of the evening.
The attacker worked the ball in the sixtieth minute on a pass from Werner with a heel behind his standing leg. Switzerland finished the game with ten men after Fabian Schär received his second yellow card in injury time.
