Timo Werner missed a sitter in Germany’s 2-1 defeat to North Macedonia.
The 25-year old striker missed an open goal that could have been the match-winner for Joachim Low’s side.
The score was 1-1 after Gundogan fired an equaliser through a penalty in the 63rd minute.
Werner had the chance to give Germany the lead but he failed to score and they eventually conceded in the 85th minute.
Man City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan showed his support for Werner after the game.
“I’m sorry for Timo,” the Manchester City star told RTL (via Sport1).
“He’s the one who wants to score the most.”
‘We have no choice but to continue. We all know that such a defeat shouldn’t happen to us.
‘That is not our right. It cannot be explained either. But that’s the way it is, we have to accept that.’
Joachim Low blasted over Timo Werner’s shocking miss in that crucial tie.
“Timo normally has to [score] that, no question about it,” he explained.
“He didn’t hit the ball properly. If he hit it cleanly, it’s a goal.
“He probably blames himself the most.
“It was a blow for the team that we missed the chance. We have to point that out and talk about it.”
