Speaking after Germany’s 2-0 win against Israel on Saturday night, head coach Hansi Flick praised the performance of 19-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala, who played the second half in a deeper role.
“I’m not somebody that likes to single out players a lot, but he had a lot of bright moments. He’s a player that’s good on the ball and he always looks confident on the pitch, which I really like. He also did well when we were without possession too. If he plays like this, he’s a real asset for any side and that includes Bayern and the national team.”
Musiala played the full 90 minutes and has nine caps for Germany since making his debut in March 2021.
