Jeff Horseman got into journalism because he liked to write and stunk at math. He grew up in Vermont and he honed his interviewing skills as a supermarket cashier by asking Bernie Sanders “Paper or plastic?” After graduating from Syracuse University in 1999, Jeff began his journalistic odyssey at The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York, where he impressed then-U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Clinton so much she called him “John” at the end of an interview. From there, he went to Annapolis, Maryland, where he covered city, county and state government at The Capital newspaper. Today, Jeff writes about anything and everything. Along the way, Jeff has covered wildfires, a tropical storm, 9/11 and the Dec. 2 terror attack in San Bernardino. If you have a question or story idea about politics or the inner workings of government, please let Jeff know. He’ll do his best to answer, even if it involves a little math.

The image of the Evening attacker Timo Werner delivered. First he verstolperte in the 80’s. Minute, the Chance for the opening goal against North Macedonia, then he knelt down in despair on the grass and let the head hang. Werner was a picture of misery, as the entire German team. As the North Macedonians scored five minutes later the winning goal to the 2:1 Elmas, was the embarrassment perfect. The defeat in the world Cup qualifiers in Duisburg, Germany, after the debacle against Spain in the past year, another low point in the spout to the Era of Joachim löw ends.

Before the European championship, the mood is in the basement. If you consider that the first-round opponent, France, Portugal and Hungary are, can be, given the performance on Wednesday night, only fear and worry. The Situation is exacerbated by the criticism, the patters down on the players and coaches. Already there are voices calling for the immediate resignation of the national coach. This will not happen. But the prospects that Löw and his Team play a good EM, are rather dim in the light of the Evening of Duisburg. “We must now keep the Faith” ( … ) “, and also do not feel that we are still able to play a good tournament,” appealed to an almost desperate as a head coach.

Löw is not, of course, the first Coach in the history of the DFB, which were painful and desolate visions of his Eleven must deal with it. Tart Clapping, there were already some (but not so many for a single Trainer!). That is reason enough time on the worst defeats in the 2000s (a longer review would be beyond the scope) to look back – so here is a little history of bankruptcies, bad luck and mishaps of the national team.
