Germany need big changes, says Loew after World Cup crash

Germany need big changes, says Loew after World Cup crash

Leon Goretzka, who led Germany's midfield brilliantly at the Confederations Cup previous year, Niklas Suele, Julian Brandt and Sebastian Rudy are only given their chance when Loew's first-choice stars are suspended or injured.

Hardly anyone in the German setup leaves Russian Federation with any credit.

With a win over Serbia that booked a spot into the knockout stage and a Germany loss to South Korea that saw the reigning champs crash out incredible early, it's safe to say that Brazil fans enjoyed two "wins" on Wednesday. Trust them. The team that won the 2014 World Cup was the result of a process that was initiated as a response to the disastrous 2000 Euro campaign.

"We're sorry for not playing like world champions, and as painful as it is, we deserve to be out", the team wrote.

Coming off a 1998 triumph on home soil, Les Bleus were one of the favourites for the Japan/South Korea World Cup four years later.

India vs Ireland 2nd T20I at Malahide
After it leaves Ireland , India has three T20I matches against England before facing the Englishmen in both ODIs and Test series. Porterfield (14) saw his middle stump knocked back by Yadav and Shannon (two) became Siddarth Kaul's first worldwide T20 wicket.

Before the tournament, Low signed a contract extension through to 2022, and he said he would take some time to consider his future.

The "Bavarians", led by Kroos, included Bayern Munich trio Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels and Thomas Müller while Mesut Özil, Sami Khedira and Julian Draxler formed Boateng's gang.

All were shadows of their usual selves.

Leroy Sane, the forward who shone for Manchester City last season, was cut from the final squad.

Supporters in the stadium were left fuming with their side's performance, as they failed to get past a Korean side that was billed as one of the worst at the World Cup finals.

The 29-year-old center back added: "One thing is clear and that is if we lose we (could) be going home to Japan". Information from Reuters was used in this report .

"The Germany late goal in 89th minute was the biggest single change of fortune/payout". "The team worked well, players were training really well". Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan also brought focus on the team when they were pictured in May with controversial Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan ahead of his country's elections, leading to Germany's political leaders asking for explanations. "We'll need to talk about how we'll do that", he added.

Low refutes suggestions German football is about to enter a dark phase, insisting "there are enough young players, who are very talented and ready to develop".

"We had it in our own hands, but we did not make it", he said, according to SportsOn.

Andersson said he refused to take any pleasure in the demise of the Germans whom he had accused of distasteful celebrations when they beat Sweden.

For now however, Germany have to get used to the unaccustomed taste of failure.
