Expected. This is what I object to. Of course he wasn’t great. The entire team had been playing like shite and if he wasnt included in that then they’d have won.
But it’s the singling out that gets me. There is no reason to target him especially over many of the others that played. That’s what I , and I assume many others object to.
But we all know where the motivation for this singling out comes from.
It was such a nice story, with all these children of immigrants from all over the world, like Poland, Tunisia, Turkey, Albania, winning the first world cup for a unified Germany in 2014.
Of course, with the way the world is now in 2018, that there was no way such a feel good story would be occurring now.
Wonder if he retires.
