Germany had to wait for 90 minutes to reach the final of the European Under-21 thanks to their goalscorer, Waldschmidt, who transformed a foul. His seventh goal in four games, almost nothing. The Germans had to suffer a lot against a good Romania in which Puscas and Hagi were protagonists.
The match started well for the Germans, who after the first of the four strikes due to the heat, made the 1-0 in a led back and ended by Amiri. A little that, interestingly, woke the Romanians, who took a step forward. Just three minutes later, Puscas made the draw and opened the best minutes of the Romanians. The striker himself, on the edge of the break, made the second with a good header in a play that started Hagi with a good game change. But it was a mistake by Hagi himself who cleared the German road in the second act. The Romanian committed an innocent punishment for a grip that Waldschmidt transformed.
All the good Romanian sensations evaporated and Germany began to grow. Little by little he had longer possessions and imposed his game. After several failed occasions, the clearest of Nmecha in minute 85, would come the phrase. Again, Waldschmidt, with a low shot that slid between the barrier, made it 3-2 and knocked down the Romanians, who even fit in the fourth, through Amiri in another foul.
