On Wednesday evening, during the international break, Germany’s football team faced the North Macedonia football team in a World Cup Qualification match, in which the Germans lost 2-1 to the North Macedonians. Although Germany ended up losing the game, they did also have a couple of chances to win it. One of which included Timo Werner’s failure to score a sitter in the 80th minute. Werner’s miss was so bad, even a player on the North Macedonia team, could not help but place his hands on the head in disbelief. The miss also sent social media into a frenzy, with some users making fun of Timo Werner’s miss.
With everything that occurred after the game, the moment which stood out the most, was when a North Macedonia newspaper wasted no time in mocking Timo Werner, by giving the German a Macedonian Passport “thanking him” for missing the clear shot at goal, which could have changed the outcome of the game.
Currently, North Macedonia sits at 2nd place, whiles Germany sits at 3rd place, although both teams share 6 points in their World Cup Qualification group. This is because North Macedonia leads Germany in goal difference.
