ttacking goal looked to spell doom for the home team. But the German machines had other plans, as Portugal's goal only sparked new life in reinvigorating them. From then on they went all out on the attack, and this time with more intension and nerve-wracking intensity. It was a display which every German will be proud of, and now with both sides having their sights set on their final group fixtures, we bring you four things to note from this encounter.
In what appeared to be a game that kept every sport loving fan at the edge of their seat, the 3 nil scoreline definitely does not tell the whole story of the game. It was a game that begged for a moment of brilliance, and it took Borussia Dortmund's left back Raphael Guerrero latching on to a deflected cross from Rafa Silva, for the flood gates of goals to open. With Portugal now having one foot in the knockout phase, we bring you five things to note from the encounter.
Since losing Raul Jimenez to a horrific head injury in November 2020, Wolves have picked up just 8 points in 11 matches. They've stumbled down the table to 14th, and they look a far cry from the side that finished 7th in previous back to back seasons. Without Raul Jimenez and a sudden abandonment of their back-three mantra, Nuno Espirito Santo's side look like a team that lack a clear identity to win football matches. This comes as a surprise, given that Wolverhampton had one of the clearest identities in the league two seasons in a row before this one. After their toothless performance in the second half against West Bromwich Albion, leading to a 3-2 defeat, we take a look at what's gone wrong for the Raul Jimenez-less Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2020-21.
