Germany in despair after being eliminated from Euro 2024. "The dream has been destroyed"

The German national team has been eliminated from Euro 2024 after a thrilling battle with Spain. The journalists there are in despair after this decision. There are telling words.

It is not without reason that the Spain-Germany match was called an early final. Both teams have so far presented offensive football at Euro 2024, and Luis de la Fuente’s players were particularly impressive, winning all their matches. The battle that opened the quarter-finals kept the tension alive until the very end. Ultimately, Spain won 2:1, and the hero of this team was Mikel Merino, who scored a goal in the 119th minute of the competition, when he beat Manuel Neuer with a header.

Euro 2024. Despair in German media

It is often said that the Germans play to the end. This is because our western neighbours have often liked to score goals in the final moments of matches. In the clash with Spain, Julian Wirtz equalised his team in the final minutes of regular time, but in extra time it was the opponents who dealt the decisive blow. The German media despaired.

“How bitter! Our summer, fairytale dream has been dramatically destroyed! Dear footballers, we suffer with you! It was a dramatic fight, watched by 51,000 spectators at the stadium in Stuttgart and millions of fans on TV,” reads the report in the daily “Bild”.

Other journalists, however, point out that Spain brutally ended Toni Kroos’ career. He is saying goodbye to football after Euro 2024. “Shortly before the end of extra time, Merino ended Germany’s dreams of winning the European Championship and Kroos’ career,” wrote “Kicker”.

The Spanish game until the very end is praised by the portal, which also writes about a thriller without a happy ending for the Germans. “In extra time, Spain struck hard. It was a thriller with a bitter ending for the German team. The dream of winning the title was shattered,” the portal emphasized.

Spain will fight for its fourth title

After defeating Germany, La Furia Roja still has a chance to win their fourth European title in history, which would put them in the lead of the all-time standings. They need two more steps to do that. Spain’s semi-final opponents will be France, who have not impressed with their performances so far, but have a great squad of quality. This match will take place on Tuesday, July 9. Kick-off at 9:00 p.m.
