A win would take Joachim Löw's squad a step closer to qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The reigning champs are the clear favorites, but the surprise package in their group, Azerbaijan, may have a few tricks up their sleeve.
Germany are aiming to become the first team to successfully defend a World Cup since 1938. In an exclusive interview with DW, Germany coach Joachim Löw reveals how he plans to achieve that and how he views his role.
Germany face France in their final game of 2017, but Joachim Löw is worried about the performance, not the result. Changes were expected and announced, including the return of Kevin Trapp in goal.
Joachim Löw said he is eager to experiment with his Germany team in its final two friendlies in 2017. The Germany head coach admitted he has some idea of what his squad will look like but expects some tough choices.
They may have stumbled slightly towards the end, but the unbeaten German national team have enjoyed one of their best-ever years. Joachim Löw's task now is to attempt to achieve the impossible: perfection.
