World Cup qualifier: Germany coach reacts to Werner shocking miss in 2-1 defeat to Macedonia

Germany coach, Joachim Low, has slammed Chelsea forward, Timo Werner for his shocking miss from close range in their 2-1 loss to North Macedonia on Wednesday in Duisburg.

It was surprise home defeat for the four-time World Cup-winners in the Qatar 2022 home qualifier.

Goran Pandev opened scoring, before Ilkay Gundogan equalized from the penalty spot, but Werner had the chance to put Germany in front, only to scuff his shot wide from inside the penalty box.

Eljif Elmas made it 2-1 with five minutes left to seal a historic win.

“He must put that ball away, no question at all.

“He has shown here he can score goals.

“But he doesn’t hit the ball right with his left foot, if he makes a clean contact with the ball it’s a goal,” Joachim Low said on RTL after the match.
