Nations Lague: England-Germany 3-3, Kvara and Dzeko in goal

Another 4 groups are closed in the various series. In Ligue B Romania wins and … relegates

Five “Italian” goals and a heart-pounding second half on the Wembley lawn. The last day of the Nations League gives emotions: Germany draws (3-3) against England, which first goes down by two goals, then overturns the game and finally gets caught up by Havertz with the complicity of Nick Pope. The usual Kvaratskhelia scores and drags Georgia to 16 points, while in Bucharest Bosnia – arithmetically leaders and on the field with many second lines – loses despite Dzeko’s goal: the Genoan Puscas (brace) and the Parmesan Dennis Man give a success for 4-1 to Romania, which still fails to avoid relegation. Finland and Estonia also win, with full points in group D2.


Already relegated and stopped at 2 points after 5 matches, England tries to save face in the match against Germany. The coach Southgate relies on the trident made up of Foden, Kane and Sterling, who in the first half wasted several scoring. Ter Stegen denies Sterling the 1-0, Kane is imprecise, the only flash for Germany is Kimmich with a long-range shot in recovery. In the second half, yet another slip by Maguire allows the Germans to take the lead: in the 50th minute Musiala points the United defender in the area, remedying a kick and a shot from the spot. Gundogan places it in the corner and scores 0-1. Shortly after, Sule tries again, but the doubling arrives in the 67th minute with a pearl by Kai Havertz. Germany strikes on the counterattack thanks to the Chelsea striker, who receives the ball on the trocar and lets a left-handed player go off to turn into seven. At 68 ‘Gosens enters the field, then England is unleashed. At 72 ‘Shaw shortens the distance from close range, at 75’ Mount equalized the score with a first-intention right-footed cross from Saka. Kane loads the team on his shoulders, in the 80th minute he touches the 3-2 with a shot and then finds him, on a penalty kick, after a foul by Schlotterbeck that overturns the game. The English feel the victory in their pockets, Germany remains in the game and in the end draws with Havertz, who uses a duck from Pope and scores 3-3 easily. In the final Ter Stegen performs a miracle on Saka, denying the English the joy of the first victory in the tournament.


In group B3 Bosnia is already arithmetically promoted: in Romania they can afford a bit of turnover, leaving Dzeko on the bench until the 71st minute. On the other hand are the owners Radu, Marin and Parma star Dennis Man, who in the 38th minute unlocks the match by entering perfectly through the central streets. His shot is not irresistible, but Vasilj fails to repel. Half an hour from the end the Genoan Puscas also enters the field, who after 7 ‘scores the 2-0 goal. With the entry of Dzeko, Bosnia becomes dangerous: 6 minutes are enough for the Interista to equalize the score with a header, then the race starts again uphill. Ratiu signs the 3-1 with a tap-in rejected by the goalkeeper, Puscas invents the 4-1 with a platter from the edge of the area. Despite the success in Bucharest, the Romanians did not avoid relegation: Finland placed the coup in Montenegro, where Jovetic and his teammates start badly. Five yellow cards scored in the first 20 minutes, two of which by the central Tomasevic, sent off after a quarter of an hour. The hosts resisted for a while, then the rookie Antman was unleashed: he signed on 0-1 with a right-footed shot in the 47th minute, a cross for Kallman’s head who doubled in the 53rd minute.


In group C4 the script is always the same. Georgia dominates and reaches 16 points in the group, Kvaratskhelia scores and rises to 5 goals in 6 games. In Gibraltar, the Napoli winger exalts himself in the left lane and is landed in the 19 ‘: the referee points to the spot, Kvicha beats him coldly and brings him forward. At the beginning of the second half Tsitaishvili scores the 0-2, in the final Annesley finds the first goal in the national team by deflecting a cross from Liam Walker. It ends 1-2, Gibraltar relegates, in the other match of the group Bulgaria overcomes North Macedonia. Elmas and his teammates remain in 10 for a red to Todoroski after a quarter of an hour, but Bulgaria only manages to score in the second half. Despodov decides it with a goal like a real bomber: stop in the chest, entry into the area and powerful conclusion that cannot be missed by the Montenegrin goalkeeper. San Marino and Estonia also took the field, engaged in group D2, which the Estonians close at the top with full points: Anier (brace), Teniste and Sappinen put their signature on poker in San Marino.
