Hansi Flick: “We lacked a bit of conviction.”

Speaking after Germany’s 1-1 draw against Hungary in the UEFA Nations League, head coach Hansi Flick reacted to the disappointing performance as Die Mannschaft picked up their fourth consecutive 1-1 draw.

“Ahead of the game, I said that this would be our second toughest match after the England game,” said Flick. “Hungary were a very compact unit and we just didn’t manage to play forward convincingly enough, we made too many mistakes.

“That said, we’re still in a process of development. We need to make sure we learn our lessons from this game. We lacked a bit of conviction. I won’t go on and start making excuses, we wanted the points today and everyone in the dressing room is disappointed that we didn’t get them.

“Now we have two days to recover, we’ll play the 11 which we think is the most match fit against Italy.”

Zsolt Nagy opened the scoring for Hungary after six minutes before Jonas Hofmann scored the equaliser three minutes later.
