Jogi Löw’s team led the Nations League twice, in the end there was only one draw twice. Both against Spain (1: 1) and against Switzerland (1: 1), the DFB team could not triumph with determination.
That is why Löw says to the SID: “The feelings are a bit mixed now.” Already after the game against the neighboring country, one of the experienced members of the team rumbled. Ilkay Gundogan found clear words with “I’m pissed off”.
“We have to get better”
Löw also wants more volume on the field. His team consisted mainly of young and new players. The national team manager gave Champions League winners like Manuel Neuer and Joshua Kimmich a break and said, “It’s also a matter of maturity and personality. I said that if you train yourself out loud it gives you energy and is a great help.” some are reluctant. We need to get better there too – and that will be better in October, we will be louder when players come back who take the responsibility of coaching. “
The Leipziger were also not in the selection to be able to relax after the tiring season. “Now it is important to get in touch with the others who come back from vacation, Bayern and Leipzig. Then we watch the games again and think about what to do in October,” explains Löw.
The DFB team will play against Ukraine on October 10 and Switzerland again on October 13. Low said: “We will be competing with the full band in October and November. There will be seven or eight players who play a vital role for us.”
