MANUEL NEUER: It would not have taken a goalkeeper the size of a world goalkeeper to prevail against the Northern Europeans.  He seldom had to intervene, he could not distinguish himself once.  Note 3.

LUKAS KLOSTERMANN: Before the great Icelandic opportunity, he let Bödvarsson boil him and opened the inner lane.  Subsequently, too, with occasional uncertainties.  More committed to the front than opposite Can.  Grade: 4.

MATTHIAS GINTER: Extremely inconspicuous - not the worst job reference for a central defender.  Unexcited, the agreement with his teammates was not always correct, the DFB had never played with this back four before.  Note 3.

ANTONIO RÜDIGER: Was able to deflect Sigurjonsson's shot decisively and thus prevent the 1: 2 with luck.  On the other side, he just headed past.  Twelve ball conquests, small blunders diminish the positive impression.  Note 3.

ILKAY GÜNDOGAN: Made a bad bad pass early on that went unpunished.  Alternated in building up the game with Kimmich and often advanced into the attack line.  With a fine individual effort, he put the lid on.  Grade: 2.5.

KAI HAVERTZ: His precise direct acceptance was untenable for Halldorsson, in the second half he hit dry offside.  Like the entire German offensive, he had a good day, even if he went underground every now and then: Grade: 3.
