    He had a meteoric performance in his first start. Duels won 79%, aerial duels won 77%, pass accuracy 73% and Whoscored gave him a 8.78.

    Endo pokes the ball over Nürnberg's keeper from 6 yards out following a corner to equalize 1-1, only to be called back for a foul on Mario Gómez via VAR.

    Several minutes later he had a great dribbling run that led to another would-be equalizer, which was called back narrowly for offside.

    Excellent to see his first team spot coinciding with good run of form for Stuttgart.

    Endo played well yesterday, with some key interceptions, passes, and link-up plays.
    He seemed to be the pivot of the team, as almost every ball went through him and generated by him.

    Even though he did not cover the opponent's player well in the play which led to their first goal, he was hardly the one to blame for it, as it was the job of the team's 4-back not him, and only the bad positioning and zonal marking of the back-four forced Endo to be in such an awkward position.

    Stuttgart lost the game 1-2, but they were clearly the best team on the field, dominating the play and ball possession, and having more attacking opportunities. They have to improve their approach in dealing with counterattacks, as it was the one which costed them the match.

    Anyhow, the game was a derby game, an away game, with the players not yet having 100% match fitness, surely they will improve in the coming games. Overall, they are a 1.Bundesliga material, and deserve to be promoted, all they have to do is to fix some of their problems
