New low for Jogi!
The World Cup is over for Germany after the historic preliminary round-out for 109 days. However, Jogi Löw (58) did not really move forward, despite the great analysis and the announced change of light.
0: 3 against Holland. So we get off!
The national coach: "That was a very brutal and disappointing defeat, especially since we have to say that we were in the game in the first 25, 30 minutes, the game was under control. At the moment you can literally feel that we do not have the self-confidence that we already had. "
At the post-match press conference, Loew responded irritably to a Dutch reporter's question about his future.
"Since we have to swap quickly here, I am the wrong contact," said Löw, who initially had not understood the question.
The coach looked for help to press spokesman Jens Grittner and asked him: "Did we understand the question correctly, or wrong?" The reporter asked whether Löw could not decide on his own future. Löw replied in English: "Not at the moment."
BILD hooked up with Jogi: "What did you mean 'at the moment'?" Löw: "That was just fun …"
After the 0-0 draw against France Löw continues to wait for the first victory in the Nations League and the first competitive game success after the World Cup in Russia. In the new competition, it is now against the descent into the league B.
Is Löw's world champion axis of 2014 still the perfect key to success? In the starting lineup are again Neuer, Hummels, Boateng, Müller and Kroos five regulars of the title summer. Löw before the game: "The axis is important. I trust these players. "
No courage for new ideas, no ideas in the game, no cold-throat in front of goal! For this he brings Schalke's zero-goal striker Uth, leaving the young Wilden Brandt and Sané outside initially. Episode: Grade 6 for the coach!
On ZDF, addressed to a possible discussion about his person, Löw says: "Of course you have to expect that now. And we have to live with that, if you show such a performance – as a trainer first and foremost. You have to hide that as a coach for a while. I understand that, but that's not my job. I have to take care of the team. "
And there are enough construction sites!
30th minute: Corner for Holland, Neuer moves from the line, but does not come to the ball. Babel sets a header to the crossbar, van Dijk nods the ball in Nachsetz purely in – 0: 1.
With Germany knows the defender. In Liverpool is his coach Jürgen Klopp. Englishmen paid Van Dijk € 78m to Southampton in January – transfer record for a defender.
It takes 15 minutes for the Löw Elf to get going. Neuer had to save after two minutes for the first time. Werner (15th) and Müller (18th) have good chances, but do not bring the ball over the line. Sané smashes after the break from six meters (65th). Wijnaldum gives the preliminary decision for Holland (80th), Depay makes it seven minutes later after a Draxler-Bock better – 0: 2. In injury time (90. + 3) it becomes a debacle. Wijnaldum makes the 0: 3 from the German point of view.
Löw on the final phase: "Especially in the last ten minutes, the experienced players have to take responsibility, rest – and not run around wild."
Mats Hummels on ZDF: "It's a question of missing chances – clearly. We lose a game 0: 3 that we actually have to win. Sometimes it's bad luck, sometimes inability. Now we are here with a 0: 3, we will definitely get on the face. "
In Holland, the change seems to run better than in Germany. Stars like Robben, Sneijder, van Persie and van der Vaart have stepped down from the national team. Coach Ronald Koeman (since February in office) is consistently on talents.
Is that also the way for yogis? On Tuesday it will be in Paris against France. Will be exciting, who is then in the starting eleven.
