The Germany U21s began the U21 Euros in Italy and San Marino with a victory. On Monday evening, Stefan Kuntz’s team beat Denmark 3-1. Borussia’s midfielder, Florian Neuhaus, came on at half-time to replace Arne Maier, whilst Andreas Poulsen didn’t come off the bench.
FC Augsburg’s Marco Richter (27’, 52’) and SC Freiburg’s Luca Waldschmidt (65’) scored the three goals for Germany whilst Robert Skov (73’) scored from the spot for the Danes. “I am very happy how the team has started the tournament, even if everything did run as smoothly as we wanted it to. It was a deserved victory,” said Kuntz.
On Thursday (21:00 CEST) Germany will face Serbia, who lost 2-0 to Austria. Andreas Poulsen and the Danes will also play on Thursday (18:30 CEST) as they take on Austria. The group winners will go through to the semi-finals and also claim a spot at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games.
