DFB Team in Transition: Joachim Löw has already installed a new Bayern Axel
National coach Joachim Löw continues his Art Nouveau – and is rewarded for it. Süle, Kimmich and Gnabry represent the law of the future. "It's the players who can build the scaffold permanently."
Sometimes 45 minutes of class football are enough to make great dreams come true. For Joachim Loew, national coach of the German national team, Thursday's night in Leipzig was such a trigger.
After the 3-0 victory in the test against –
"To play the title" No, Löw sat there in the stadium's catacombs, relaxed, relaxed and actually talked about the championship title 2020. You must now get a "good mix" of older and younger players and then, "yes challenged in 2020, because we want to play a good tournament and maybe play for the title, "says Löw.
Oha! It had to happen earlier. It was a promising insight into the future, Löw to the audience in the sold-out arena (Joshua Kimmich: "I thought we were in the courtyard with the blue seats.")
Löw recovers  After the really good first half with three goals from Leroy Sané, succeeded Niklas Süle and Serge Gnabry and a quick attack game DFB-Elf lead in the second half, Russia came to odds, Löw acknowledged "again a bit confused".
The overall impression was this: Löw has invented a little new – with the triple chain in defense and the turbo attack Sané, Gnabry and Timo Werner. And: He is consistently following the alternative path of change. "It's players who know each other for a long time and can build the frames permanently," says Löw about the youngsters around Kimmich or the strong game champion Kai Havertz, becoming more important in the national team – and gradually increasing the World Championships in 2014.
"Every young player is hungry "
Only Manuel Neuer, with 32 years of host father in the team, and Matthias Ginter heard from Russia eleven years ago to the World Championship. Löws makeover. "These are all seasoned players who play in top clubs, even internationally," said Captain Neuer: "Every young player is very hungry, which is very positive, they have a lot of potential we can build on it."
The old shaft of FC Bayern, consisting of Neuer, Mats Hummels, Jérôme Boateng and Thomas Müller (this star Toni Kroos) are currently transforming into a new Bayern-shoulder: New will be the goalkeeper number one continues to hear to the luggage compartment in defense
Boateng and Hummels must fight
Boateng, who was not nominated this time, and Hummels, who sat on the bench for 90 minutes, has to worry about his place.
In the middle field there is also a shift. Kimmich becomes more and more leader, even Leon Goretzka, who came in short term, should be in charge of the new beginning. A loser of revolution is Thomas Müller. According to Löw, the Munich player behaves like Hummel's "insanely professional" and goes "forward".
For Müller, however, a supporting role is probably no longer thought-rather one that Lukas Podolski filled for years. Löw has found other commercials, "small-scale", as Süle says about Gnabry, Sané and Co. In addition, Dortmund's Marco Reus (29) is one of them.
And that's the best looking forward to the future again, regardless of the fact that the Nations League, which ends with the match against the Netherlands on Monday, has been disappointing. Löw is already thinking about EM 2008. And he seems to have a plan.
