The story continues in Egypt - U-20 World Cup
DFB Coach Horst Hrubesch was in a difficult situation after he recieved 26 player cancelations. FIFA's timing for the U-20 World Cup in Egypt was a bit unlucky. The season in Germany and the rest of Europe already started and most of the Clubs didn't give their players the permission to play for their country. But Coach Hrubesch nominated the right players. The successful story of the DFB (Deutsche Fußball Verband) in youth soccer continues. The Team of "Newcomers" played a great tournament so far. They finished first in their group infront of the USA, South Korea and Cameroon. Yesteday, the team won with a great effort the eighth final game against Nigeria. In the 64 Minute, Germans Kempe saw with no reason the red card. The German team turned around a 1:2 deficit and won the game with 3:2. Bayern Munichs Kopplin was man of the match with two goals and one assist. Germany will face Brazil in the quarter finale.
