Leeds fans react as Robin Koch features in different role for Germany

Koch was handed a chance in holding midfield for his country’s Nations League clash with Ukraine on Saturday. And he went on to produce an outstanding performance.

The most impressive moment came when he lifted a delicious pass into Leon Goretzka’s path. The 25-year-old then found Timo Werner for the home side’s second goal.

It seems fair to say that many supporters are now intrigued to see how he would get on in that position having been superb for Germany this weekend.

Here is what some of the supporters made of Koch’s display and pass for Goretzka…
