[German Coach Joachim Low reports that centre-back Mats Hummels should be back to fitness for the final group game against South Korea after a neck injury] I appreciated that we didn’t lose our nerves, we didn’t break out in panic after conceding.

[Joachim Low reflects on his side’s group stage exit at Russia 2018] My biggest mistake was believing that we would get through the group stage with this possession-based football.
