In 2014, Germany brought home the World Cup. But in 2016, all coach Joachim Löw won was a German Bambi award in recognition of his achievements. His side returned from the Euros empty handed.
The DFB has announced that the national team will set up its headquarters for next summer's World Cup on the outskirts of Moscow. The region is seen as the most convenient for travel to and from Germany's matches.
The new academy that the DFB plans to build is designed to set new standards in digital match analysis. Big data is thought to be the future of football and Germany is aiming to be the world leader in this field.
Germany head coach Joachim Löw has named his squad for the national team's last two matches of 2017. A couple of familiar faces return, while Marcel Halstenberg earned his first call up to the national team.
The German FA has named Philip Lahm as an honorary captain of the national team. He is also to serve as an ambassador for Germany's bid to win the right to host Euro 2024.
