Chelsea striker Timo Werner had a night to forget as Germany lost 2-1 to North Macedonia in a World Cup qualifier.
In what was a crucial World Cup qualifying game, Werner squandered an easy chance that saw Germany suffer a 2-1 upset, and the result means that Germany’s 35-game unbeaten run in World Cup qualifying, which dates back to their 5-1 defeat to England in 2001, has now ended.
With the scores at 1-1, Werner missed the easiest of chances to put his side in front, much to the amazement of everyone.
To make matters worse, Eljif Elmas then put North Macedonia in front in the 85th minute to complete a surprise 2-1 upset in Duisburg.
Germany boss Joachim Low was unforgiving of Werner and insists that he should have scored his chance.
When asked about Werner’s miss after his side’s defeat in Duisburg, Low told RTL: “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.”
