Gundogan 'pissed off' after Germany draw with Switzerland


Germany 2020

Ilkay Gundogan says he was "pissed off" after Germany lost their lead to draw 1-1 with Switzerland in Sunday's UEFA Nations League clash.

Joachim Low's side have collected just two points from as many matches in the competition, having tied with Spain on Thursday.

Gundogan fired low into the net to give Germany the lead just 14 minutes into the clash at St. Jakob Park, butSilvanWidmer equalised just before the hour mark.

The midfielder was disappointed in his side's failure to regain control of the encounter.

"I'm a little pissed off. We lost balls unnecessarily. It's very annoying and I'm a little pissed off," Gundogan toldZDF.

"It was completely up to us. We were in a good starting position, leading 1-0. Then we gave away a bad pass, run into a counter-attack and then it's 1-1.

"This is not a process, this is a very simple football game. If you have the ball up front, you have to keep it up there. Then you have to fight the last 10, 20 minutes and you are lucky to get out with a point.

"I'm dissatisfied, honestly. We should have played through the second half as ice cold. So we're giving away two points."

Fellow Germany midfielder Toni Kroos was also left irritated by his side's second consecutive collapse, which leaves them two points behind group leaders Spain, who beat Ukraine 4-0.

"Unfortunately it was similar to the one against Spain, so we can definitely work to have more solutions and more self-confidence as a team," he said.

"If there are six points to be distributed and you only get two, that is disappointing."

Coach Low sympathised with his players' irritation, but is confident they will bounce back when they face Ukraine and Switzerland again in the next Nations League matches in October.

"Unfortunately it wasn't enough. We just failed to make it 2-0 again," he said.
