It is clear that two strong teams are facing each other and we hope to take advantage of our moments, that we can maintain control. Even so, damage can be done to a team like Spain. We are the two best teams in terms of demonstrated quality“We are both in the top-3.”

History points more in the direction of Lehmann than that of Sané or that of the press that describes Spain as the favorite to win the title. Contrast or objectivity against the goalkeeper’s opinion, something that Ballack also approaches when calling the team weak in defense. “What’s that? Good football, no doubt, but maybe it’s too risky if the goals don’t fall and your opponent counterattacks with determination? They are also vulnerable. If they lose the ball while advancing, they remain disorganized behind. In fact, the Spanish looked surprisingly vulnerable in some situations, especially when Georgia counterattacked.”

That’s not acceptable at all, I think it’s at the limit.”
