Marc-André ter Stegen (goal)
Could not be distinguished in the first round, then had luck with the pillar crash of Rodrigo de Paul. Was left alone in the first goal by his front man, even at the second he had no defense. Interpreted his role as aggressively as you know him. His safety in the construction game did the national team enormously well.
Emre Can (defense)
In the first round as right-man of the triple defense with a very serene idea. Great his rescue action in the header of Lautaro Martínez. Occasionally also switched on the offensive and failed in the 55th minute only just keeper Augusto Marchesin.
Robin Koch (defense)
When Niklas Stark, who was originally scheduled for the starting eleven, got sick with flu, Koch had to work spontaneously – but he played as if he had been with him forever. Juventus star Paulo Dybala saw no country against the Freiburg, who also convinced in construction with clear balls. In the 1: 2 by Lucas Alario, however, he did not look good.
Niklas Süle (defense)
Came pretty sluggish in the left-hand position of the three-string, making some foci and unnecessary fouls. This time Germany's most experienced defender, you just did not see it. An erratic appearance of the otherwise often so sovereign Süle.
Lukas Klostermann (midfielder)
Klostermann had room for advances on the right of the three-way defense chain – and he used this early on with the perfect goal preparation for Serge Gnabry. His second vehement start led to success, this time completed Kai Havertz from the quick attack. Was much more demanding in the second half of Marcos Acuna and hardly came to set accents on the offensive.
Joshua Kimmich (midfield)
For the first time, the A team captained the turf and scored a straight yellow for a tough foul against Leandro Paredes. Once he yelled at Waldschmidt after he had conquered a ball on the sidelines. But also skilfully played football, was the central Umschaltspieler who conquered many balls and launched attacks. He also lost control of the game in the last half hour, which clouded the impression.
Marcel Halstenberg (midfield)
On the left wing at first not nearly as committed ím forward as his Leipzig club mate Klostermann. It was particularly noticeable when the ball came to rest: His brilliant free-kick on the crossbar after half an hour deserved a goal.
Kai Havertz (midfield)
Was in midfield in central-offensive position much in motion, called and distributed the balls – and closed the counterattack to 2: 0 even with consistent passage in the center forward position. Very good starting line-up, even though he could not keep the level after the break.
Serge Gnabry (attack)
Eleven internationals, ten goals – that's impressive. Gnabry extended his grandiose quota in the national team after a quarter of an hour, as he kept track of three opponents in a confined space. Even then, Gnabry was dangerous for a long time by his pace game, only after the change he dismounted. After his substitution, the offensive stalled.
Luca Waldschmidt (attack)
With his aggressive pressing the debutant immediately set the tone – and thus initiated with a courageous entry on the sidelines also the attack, which led to 2: 0. But he hardly ever got into position himself, and if he did, he played it off. That he can do it, he showed, when he hit the outside net in the 47th minute.
Julian Brandt (attack)
Had the first big chance in the 14th minute, but failed with his low shot to goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin. With many counter-attacks, the game was quick, but its weaknesses were also visible. Still has to improve in pressing and in defensive duel.
Nadiem Amiri (66th for Brandt)
One of four debutants against Argentina. In a nutshell, why national coach Joachim Loew keeps much of him. His momentum was striking, as was his move to the gate. But it was unlucky that he came into play in a phase in which Germany had largely ceased its own offensive efforts.
Suat Serdar (71. for Gnabry)
At first he got in well, as he tunnelled shortly after his substitution opponent Rodrigo de Paul. However, remembered will be more unnecessary ball loss, the 2: 2 compensation made possible in the first place.
Sebastian Rudy (83rd for Havertz)
Was nominated due to the many failures and came for the first time in this calendar year in an international match used. Played some good passes, but to recommend himself for a permanent return to the national team, he lacked the time.
