Ilkay Gündogan doesn’t think that the 7-1 win from the World Cup 2014 will affect Germany’s approach to the upcoming friendly match against Brazil and he is certain that this will be a completely different game.
The Manchester City midfielder knows that the things have changed a lot since then and the most of the Brazil squad are completely different players – and it will be a tough game for Joachim Low’s side.
The former BVB player spoke about the upcoming game as he said, according to Sports Keeda:
“We were all sitting in disbelief in front of the TV. Such a result is not commonplace for a World Cup semi-final.”
“The current Brazilian team is not comparable to that of 2014. The 7-1 is no longer an issue for us – just having the two sides play against each other is special.”
“Brazil are definitely one of the favourites for the World Cup. The Brazilians are very emotional, and they hold football in such a high regard, it gives them such a zest for life and has an almost spiritual meaning for them.”
