Flick focuses on the 'long road ahead’ after Germany debut 2-0 victory

Fri 03 September 2021 | 6:02

Timo Werner and Leroy Sane sealed Germany a 2-0 victory over Liechtenstein in World Cup qualifying Group J on Thursday despite many wasted goal-scoring opportunities for the Germans.

Hansi Flick, who 

replaced Low after Euro 2020,

 insists he is unconcerned by some wasteful finishing.

During 

Germany’s comfortable 2-0 victory

, Flick's team had 30 attempts in total, with seven hitting the target, and controlled 85.3 percent of the possession.

 

"It took us too long to get our first goal, but it's a process," 

Flick told RTL post-match.

 "I won't let this first game ruffle my feathers, there's a long road ahead and we will make our way down it.

"I told the team before the match that Liechtenstein know how to defend well. We created chances, but our opponent defended really well, with 11 players in their area. 

"I can't fault the team at all, they tried, they put the opponent under pressure, but in the end we did not take our chances enough. 

"But I'm positive, we won, and on Sunday we continue against Armenia. We have a long way to go, this was the start and we know where we want to go."

 

Flick handed 

his former Bayern player Musiala

 his first cap for Germany as the 18-year-old impressed during Mannschaft’s victory over Liechtenstein. The teenager teed up Werner before Sane capped an impressive individual display to open up the score sheet.

Flick also introduced teenager Florian Wirtz for his Germany debut.
