After a catastrophic summer, Germany held a goalless draw against World Cup winners France. While there haven’t been any radical changes, some things have improved. Is this the dawn of a new era in German football?
Germany suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Saturday night. The defeat could — and should — spell the end for coach Joachim Löw, writes DW's Michael Da Silva.
With the spotlight firmly on him, Joachim Löw reverted to an old trick against world champions France. For the most part it worked, but he’ll need something more if this is to feel new, says DW’s Matt Pearson.
After the failure, the acceptance and the introspection comes an effort to move on. Joachim Löw and his Germany players now turn their attentions to the new UEFA Nations League and attempt to focus only on the future.
After Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp dismissed the Nations League as 'senseless', Joachim Löw has leapt to the defense of the new competition. The Germany boss says his team relish games against high-profile opponents.
