German football chiefs blame early World Cup exit on ‘holiday feeling’

Posted by

German football chiefs have blamed their early World cup exit on a holiday-like atmosphere at their team hotel.

Germany endured a disappointing World Cup campaign in Qatar and were dumped out of the competition in the group stage, despite easing to a 4-2 victory over Costa Rica in their final game.

They were somewhat unlucky, with Japan’s highly controversial goal against Spain ultimately being the goal that knocked the 2014 champions out of the competition, finishing third in the group.

However, it has been revealed that following their comeback 1-1 draw against Spain, many of the German players invited their wives and girlfriends back to the secluded hotel resort to celebrate – a decision which caused tension between players, staff and the German FA.

Distractions off the pitch is an excuse that has been levelled at many English sides of the past, and perhaps there is an element of truth to it. However, Germany’s exit more than likely boils down to one simple reason – they simply were not good enough across the three fixtures did not deserve to progress to the knockout rounds.
