Joachim Löw wants to know it again: The Start of his farewell mission, he is rigorous and fierce. Against Iceland, a reaction to her. He wants to be on the square is a other communications. For EM all to the test to.

Just before the finish line before the energy sparkling Joachim Löw will all be carried away. Four months after the 0:6 low point in Spain, the national coach, was presented before the Start of his farewell mission against Iceland transformed.

A massive body language, a rigorous choice of words, and a clear strategy formulated without compromise should be documented on Wednesday in his Video press conference that he is determined to fight a last major tournament appearance. The 61-Year-old is the “Maximum” that he wants to get at the European football championship, even to the egoist. “I have a lot of consideration is taken in the last year, the players, the clubs. We can take no more consideration,” said Löw: “For me, full of concentration, full of focus on the EM, the following applies:.” Jogi want to know!

Emre Can: never again face against Spain

If the new enthusiasm that put even longtime companions, such as the DFB Director Oliver Bierhoff and captain Manuel Neuer in the soon departing Löw in the first few days in the düsseldorf headquarters and the training place, skips to the last lifeless team, the football fans could have this Thursday (20.45 PM/RTL) at the start of the world championship qualifying time of joy.

From Dortmund’s Emre Can this announcement came promptly: “We must never again show a face like against Spain!” Reparation was announced at the game-a three-pack for Iceland in Romania and to the final against North Macedonia. On a “distribution of powers” with greater Rotation Löw thinks. “Our goal must be to win the three games,” said defensive player Can go on the offensive.

Dortmund, added: “The coach is motivated, in any case, very.” The national players feel obligated to provide for their long-standing boss of everything. Löw was a good coach, noticed the Can, but above all, he was “a wonderful person”.

Joachim Löw puts everything to the test

The nice Mr Löw-mediated meanwhile, uncompromising. He expects that each individual player if he wants to be one of the 23 EM-Tickets get hold of: “All the want to Express themselves in Position. In Spain, we have made all the mistakes. I in the first line. I expect a reaction from the team,” said Loew.

The players are supposed to fight, “passionate” and “tooth and nail” for the win. Particularly clear löw was the announcement of the managers: “There will be another communication on the court. I will determine this.” He named no names. But after the failure of the injured departed midfield strategist, Toni Kroos, the order is likely to go, especially in the Trio Ilkay Gündoğan, Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka. To the Team from the midfield, the “heart”, as Löw said, just verbally.

Subliminally through sound Löw, that for him, there’s no way to Bavaria speaker Thomas Müller pass could lead. The coach repeated, in may everything you need to really want it all to the test, a DFB-Comeback of Müller, Mats Hummels and Jérôme Boateng. He even wants to “at least think about it” if he gives the since the world Cup Disaster in Russia in 2018 into the midfield suspended Kimmich in the EM right back. “He makes on both positions a super Job,” said the national coach of the 26-year-old Munich, the emergence of a common cold against Iceland.

Flat, fast, goal-directed

Against Spain at the time, injured Kimmich was missing as the emotional leader. Fail now games in the first of the three countries, alongside Kroos, the embattled defensive forces, Niklas Süle and Robin Gosens. Iceland has Arnar Vidarsson (43) a new national coach. Hard to the failures of the injured Augsburg attacker’s Alfred Finnbogason, and particularly of the former Hope Heimer’s Gylfi Sigurdsson weigh-in. “This is a big loss,” said Löw.

His focus is not on the opponent, but of one’s own approach. Flat, fast, and objective of the Turbo directed in the direction of the attacker Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sané and Timo Werner is to roll the Ball. “The game starts, if I have the Ball,” said Löw.

Against Spain, which was hardly the case, Manuel Neuer took him six times from his goal. A minimum of eight (EM-preliminary rounds) and a maximum of twelve games (final) under Löw, there are. “Now it is, to make points, automation control and, if possible, record, three wins and to lay a Foundation,” said Löw – for the aspirations to big farewell in the summer.
