After yet another impressive performance amid Germany’s World Cup exit, Jamal Musiala of Bayern Munich has received praise from former France international Samir Nasri on Twitter. Despite defeating Costa Rica 4-2, Musiala and Germany were eliminated from the World Cup group stages for the second time in a row as Spain’s loss against Japan cost them the advantage in goal differential. The 19-year-old was, however, a bright spot in Hansi Flick’s otherwise dismal performance.
Despite losing to Japan and drawing with Spain, they were unable to qualify, but by winning their last group match, they fulfilled their end of the agreement. But they were cruelly denied qualifying after yet another unexpected Japan triumph. Nasri, a former player for Arsenal and Manchester City, praised the Bayern star on Twitter for playing the full 90 minutes in Germany’s comeback victory.
“Musiala, what a player.”
TIF Opinions on Musiala
Nasri was correct to single out the former Chelsea academy product for praise, and given that he was also a skilled, inventive midfielder in his playing days, it is praise from a deserving source. According to Sofascore, Musiala accomplished an astounding 13 dribbles, which is the second-highest total in World Cup history, and made three crucial passes.
Despite the fact that Germany lost, Musiala can inspire his country as they work to usher in a new age of German football. Musiala may be the player to guide his country through what will be a difficult transitional phase away from the side that found victory in 2014. The old guard, including players like Thomas Muller and Manuel Neuer, may now include players like Thomas Muller and Manuel Neuer, may now completely make way for fresh stars to come along.
Musiala is one of the best players in the world and will continue to get admiration from the crowd with his 12 goals and 10 assists in 22 games for Bayern Munich this season.
