It is widely accepted that the German 21 side are one of the best in the world, but how are their FIFA skills? You will get the answer from FIFA 15 tournament.
The entire German U21 squad took part in the tournament and, for obvious reasons, not every game was shown in the video released by EA Sports. Liverpool fans will be disappointed to see that Emre Can was not good enough to make the semi-finals, while the same can be said about Arsenal youngster Serge Gnabry.
The first semi-final saw Armin Younes and Moriz Leitner face off against Loris Karius and Felix Klaus, with the former duo edging a narrow 2-1 win. Both teams chose Real Madrid but in the second match Jean Zimmer and Timo Horn chose Chelsea, while Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Julian Korb chose Bayern Munich. Chelsea were convincing 7-2 winners to set-up a final that would prove to be suitably epic.
Things started badly for Horn and Zimmer when they lost Thibaut Courtois to a red card and went 1-0 down. However, they fought back to make the game 3-3 as things started to heat up.
At this stage, former international Horst Hrubesch, who is now the U21 manager, told Younes that he had to leave because things were getting too tense. He had earlier told the cameras that he believes it is obvious how good the players are at the game and that they enjoy playing it. Ultimately, Leitner and Younes won out, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a late winner and they were crowned the FIFA 15 tournament winners for the German U21 squad.
