Joachim Low TEAMtalk

Joachim Low retains the unwavering support of the German Football Association (DFB) despite their humiliating 6-0 loss to Spain on Tuesday night.

Man City star Ferran Torres led the way with a hat-trick as Spain ran wild against a woeful German side in Seville.

It was Germany’s worst defeat since they lost 6-0 to Austria in 1931 and afterwards Germany national team director Oliver Bierhoff was probed about Low’s position.

Asked if Low would be in charge at next summer’s rescheduled Euro 2020 tournament, Bierhoff told ARD: “Absolutely, yes. This game changes nothing. We still trust Joachim Low, no doubt about that.

“When it comes to the national team’s coach, you have to think and analyze from tournament to tournament. We want to achieve the maximum at next year’s Euros.

“We have to digest this defeat first, it will take some time. Everything went wrong. We lost the ball easily and the team fell apart, that shouldn’t happen. We didn’t go into the tackles or keep possession. We have to learn from it and draw good conclusions.”

Ozil snipe at Low

Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil wasted no time in offering Low some advice after last night’s hammering.

The frozen-out Arsenal midfielder announced his retirement from international football shortly after the 2018 World Cup.

Germany were bundled out in the group stage and Ozil felt he was the scapegoat.

He announced his retirement from the national team soon after having felt he had no support from German officials.

“Time to take Jerome Boateng back,” Ozil tweeted soon after the final whistle.

Boateng, 32, has seen his international career cut short by Low.

The Bayern Munich man has not played for Germany since appearing in a 3-0 defeat to Holland in October 2018.
