FOOTBALL fans have been mocking Germany after six players were caught offside from a free-kick against Spain.
Hansi Flick’s side earned a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Spain after going a goal down in the second half.

The Germans thought they had taken the lead in the first half when Antonio Rudiger headed in from a free-kick.
But after a VAR review the centre-back was found to have mistimed his run and the goal was chalked off for offside.
Spain’s high defensive line at free-kicks also caused Germany problems after half-time.
Usually teams drop back from their initial standing position but Spain refused to budge.

And that meant several German players were caught yards offside, and looked rather foolish as a result.
That was the view of several World Cup fans watching at home, with one writing: “Someone teach Germany the offside rule please.”
Another added: “Germany is just the king of offside isn’t it.”
A third said sarcastically: “That offside call against Germany was really close.”
