The head coach

The head coach for Germany national football team especially for EURO 2016 is Joachim Löw. He was directly appointed by Jűrgen Klinsmanns as he has ever been his assistant during EURO 2004.

He would’ve been forgiven for showing off four years later but he was so resisted by the triumph temptation with more discipline he has managed to restrain the constant.

Mario Götze, Mesut özil, Thomas Műller, Marco Reus and Ilkay Gundogan actually can still destroy the defences apart but with no a reliable option as the retirement of Miroslav Klose, there is never an element of surprise toward their playing tactics.

Nevertheless, their common opponents are excessively frequently on the back foot to go forward.
