Germany manager Joachim Loew says that this team are ready to dominate international football for the next decade.
Germany won the World Cup 2014 after several years of coming close to ending the trophy drought. More importantly, this victory was achieved with incredible style as many will fondly remember the 7-1 thrashing of favourites Brazil in the semi-final of the tournament. Since this German team has a number of young players just entering into the prime of their careers, Joachim Loew says that the team can go on to dominate for several years by just making a couple of changes.
Loew saw his team defeat former world champions Spain in the latest high profile friendlies match for his team. Despite the recent successes that Germany have achieved, Loewis also aware thathe cannot take things for granted.
Hence, Germany have altered several aspects like playing style and formations in the last few months. They are expected to evolve going forward and they will be one of the favourites to win the Euro 2016. Talking tactics, the former assistant manager said that he expects football to return to the system of playing with two strikers. In order to compensate, he says that the back four will be overlooked for a back three formation.
“I want to get to the point where we can change tactics at will during the course of a game. We have to aim to dominate the game for a decade. To carry on in the same vein we have to change, yes you can go that far: We have to reinvent ourselves. We are working on a master-plan for 2015 and 2016. In general we want to feel the moment of victory again and win Euro 2016 in France. We need to shake a few things up as our opponents have analyzed our system intensively,” said Loew.
