Thomas Muller has admitted that the golden opportunity missed by him to score against England has made him feel very bad after Germany were eliminated from Euro 2020 as a result.
England beat Germany 2-0 at Wembley on Tuesday and will face Ukraine in the quarterfinals on Saturday.
Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane scored the winning goals for Gareth Southgate’s team at the end of the second half, but previously Muller missed an excellent opportunity to equalize the score to 1: 1.
Found alone in front of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, the Bayern Munich striker shot out of gate.
He lamented that missed opportunity, in a backlash on social media a day later.
“That was it, that moment to be imprinted in the mind and leave the night without sleep,” Muller wrote on Instagram.
“The moment he works, trains and lives for. The moment when you have the opportunity to equalize the result for your team in a very equal elimination match directly and to make the whole national football team happy “, he added.
“To have this opportunity and then abuse it, it hurts like hell.”
