Löw, born in 1960, played attacking midfield for Bundesliga sides Stuttgart and Freiburg in the 1980s. His coaching career took off with Stuttgart, he began his stint with the German national team as Jürgen Klinsmann's assistant coach prior to the 2006 World Cup. Once Klinsmann stepped down, after the tournament in Germany, Löw took the reins. In 2014, after three failed attempts at major tournaments, he claimed Germany's fourth World Cup title.

Germany made it a perfect 10 in World Cup qualification with a 5-1 win over Azerbaijan. A number of fringe players took their chance to impress including Leon Goretzka, whose brace included a stunning early backheel.
Germany still have one qualifier left, against Azerbaijan on Sunday, but Joachim Löw has already set his sights on Russia 2018. Löw has pinpointed France as one of the biggest threats and will ring the changes on Sunday.
As Germany gathered for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers, Joachim Löw stressed that none of his players had punched their ticket for Russia yet. However, he also had encouraging words for a frustrated Thomas Müller.
