Hansi Flick’s German team made history as Germany rolled over Liechtenstein in a 9-goals thriller. Hansi Flick is the first German coach to win his first six games, with his Covid-affected side thrashing 10-man Liechtenstein in a World Cup qualifier.
Germany Thrash Liechtenstein 9-0 in World Cup Qaulifier
Germany head coach Hansi Flick had to make numerous changes, with five players out because of defender Niklas Sule’s Covid infection. Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane scored twice for the hosts, who have already qualified for Qatar 2022.
Liechtenstein was reduced to ten men inside the first ten minutes of the game. Jens Hofer was sent off for kicking Leon Goretzka with a high challenge in the face, and after a short delay, Manchester City’s skipper Ilkay Gundogan converted the penalty.
It got worse, who conceded three goals in three minutes, starting with Daniel Kaufmann turning in an own goal in the 20th. Bayern Munich star player Leroy Sane then slotted in before Marco Reus added another. Flick’s predecessor Joachim Low, who received an official farewell before the game, watched from the stands and saw how Germany struck again four minutes after the restart with Sane before late goals from Muller and Ridle Baku. Muller then scored his second in the 86th before another own goal by Liechtenstein, this time from Max Goppel.
