“We had the game under control and were 2-0 up; England just played on the counterattack. We become too passive and weren’t brave enough against the ball. It’s actually inexplicable because England didn’t really want to play," Kimmich said.

He added that while they took their foot off the gas against England, they would go out all guns blazing in the World Cup.

Manchester City star Gündoğan also stressed the fact that they needed to be more consistent if they wanted to do well in Qatar.

“At a World Cup you don’t have room for mistakes. We have to be consistent over 90 minutes,” Gündoğan added.

Germany will meet Japan, Spain, and Costa Rica in the tournament group stage and will be looking for a much-improved performance.
