Young Germans ‘ best in world’
GERMANY coach Joachim Low says he is proud and impressed after his young and experimental team gave the nation a first Confederations Cup title.
The Germany squad in St Petersburg bore no resemblance to his 2014 World Cup winners and will not be the one that enters the World Cup in Russia next year to defend their title.
But Low said the 1- 0 defeat of Chile meant Germany could claim to be the best in the world, a reference to com- ments before the match by Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal.
“Before the match, Vidal had said that winning this cup would mean they are the best team in the world. Well, this cup means that at the moment Germany is still the best team in the world,” Low said.
Low has seen several players improve their standing including Timo Werner, who set up the winning goal for Lars Stindl. The Leipzig striker clinched the Golden Boot trophy with three goals and two assists in the tournament.
