For the 21-year-old, the chance to play for the German senior squad with his older brother Lukas means that he had definitely made the right decision.
Nmecha cited some specifics about the team’s play that happened to frustrate him. After a solid first-half, Nmecha noted, there were far too many ball losses in the build-up play. The English counterattack, bolstered by a slight tactical shift, simply found it way too easy to score two unanswered against his team.
Nmecha took his fair share of responsibility as well.
“I have to be more controlled in the moments when I’m fatigued,” he remarked, “shielding the ball and playing more fluidly. My reactions annoyed me, but I’m glad that the consequences weren’t severe.”
“It was the right decision,” Nmecha remarked, “I went with my heart. In the future, of course, I want to play for the senior national team with my brother Lukas. Hopefully, that will work out at some point. Hopefully, we’re headed upwards.”
