The original, and worst

Aired as part of the ‘Die Mannshaft’ film that aired in Germany this week, viewers were treated to a clip of footage of the Germany national side recreating the needlessly convoluted set-piece they so famously made a complete dog’s dinner of against Algeria at the World Cup over the summer.

This time they got it right, but only just.

Still, Thomas Muller runs away celebrating like he’s just won a solid gold speedboat…

The fact that it doesn’t even really work in training should be the sign that it’s time to knock this one on the head, fellas.

    not only that this footage was taken in Italy, prior to the world cup… but do you realize that it almsot worked against algeria?
    just shlightly higher and mueller would have gone through.
