Domenico Tedesco: We played football with guts

Domenico Tedesco was rightly pleased following his Belgian sides 3-2 victory over Germany. As reported by HLN, the newly appointed head coach said ‘ “It was a fantastic match. Even though we should have killed the match in the first half. Unfortunately that didn’t happen. But we played football with guts and based on our own qualities. We showed courage. Our intention was ‘to shock Germany’. To put pressure on them quickly.”

Tedesco has enjoyed an unbeaten start to his tenure as head coach of the Red Devils, having comprehensively beaten Sweden in his first game. Against the German’s, Belgium raced into a 2-0 lead within the first 10 minutes, thanks to goals from Yannick Carrasco and Romelu Lukaku. Niclas Füllkrug pulled one back from the spot, but man of the match Kevin De Bruyne made it 3-1 with just 12 minutes to go. The Manchester City midfielder had also provided assists for both of the two goals the Red Devils scored. Serge Gnabry made it exciting in the 87th minute, but Tedesco’s side held on to win.

In June the side will travel to Estonia after facing Austria at home in the qualification for the European championships. Their win against Sweden has given them the perfect start.
