Next task: Netherlands. The German team begins the second test match of the year at the Euro Cup with hope. After the 2-0 victory in France, there is new courage. Now it has become public how national coach Julian Nagelsmann motivated his team in the locker room.

Is the remarkable victory of the German team also due to Julian Nagelsmann's motivating previous speech? In any case, the Bild newspaper learned of the content of the speech that the 36-year-old gave to the team before the match in Lyon.

Especially the opening phase against the 2018 world champion caused a sensation, as Germany took the lead after just a few seconds thanks to Florian Wirtz's goal. Nagelsmann apparently appealed to his team before the game, which might have paid off.

Nagelsmann is motivated: “If we put in the work, we can become European champions.”

Nagelsmann led his team and inspired their belief in ultimate success. He is reported to have told the players: “If we put in the work, we can become European champions.”

After the remarkable success, Nagelsmann now wants to ride the wave of euphoria to build momentum ahead of the next European Championship. However, he also warned the players during a locker room speech. The content: “We shouldn't get arrogant now!”

The belief in success should now be supported by another convincing performance against the Netherlands consolidate and intensify. On Tuesday night they will face the neighboring country in Frankfurt.

Starting at 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday, national coach Julian Nagelsmann's team will try to achieve their next victory. A similar, if not identical, starting lineup can be expected. Before the game there were rumors about the left back position. David Raum could replace Maximilian Mittelst├Ądt, but possibly also during the course of the match.
