Joshua Kimmich on Germany’s 3-3 draw against England: “We were too passive.”

Joshua Kimmich was disappointed that Germany conceded three goals in quick succession after taking a 2-0 lead after 67 minutes. The 27-year-old spoke to press after their 3-3 draw against England.

“We were in control and deserved to be ahead,” said Kimmich. “England were simply just waiting for chances on the break. We were too passive after going 2-0 up, defended too deep and didn’t play with enough bravery without the ball. We’ve got six weeks now to get into our groove and then we’ll go for it.”

This was also echoed by Kai Havertz, who added: “Going 3-2 down after leading 2-0 is concerning. We’ve now got six weeks to work on cutting out our mistakes.”

Speaking after Germany’s 3-3 draw against England on Monday night, coach Hansi Flick stated that his side must address the negatives ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

“Today was a good test for us. We can take a look of positives from the game, but also some negatives that we will have to address,” said Flick.
