Löw reflects on Croatia loss

“It goes without saying that we are all a bit disappointed after losing this match, and looking back at the game through the rear-view mirror I think we deserved to lose – as a team we weren’t precise enough or fast enough to really trouble Croatia. We were unable to make our combinations or have a fluid game. The Croatians dropped back after the first goal and we were unable to penetrate their defence, which is why we have to accept our defeat. I’m not surprised that they tried to knock my players out of their rhythm, we were expecting this. I told them beforehand that Croatia would probably put an extra man in midfield and that’s what they did. I think that, unfortunately, we played straight into their hands by playing a lot of long balls and crosses. Over the last few years we’ve had a number of defeats – we’ve not only been winning games. The team have managed to get over these setbacks and I’m confident we will be able to do so again. It is clear that, had we won, we would have been much closer to the quarter-finals but I’m sure we will be able to perform better on Monday against Austria.”
