Low: More to come from Germany

Germany strolled to a 4-0 victory over Australia in their World Cup opener and winning coach Joachim Low believes his team can get even better. Goals from Lukas Podolski, Miroslav Klose, Thomas Muller and Cacau gave the Germans a great start to their campaign, while the footballoos were left to rue not only the result but a red card for key man Tim Cahill.

“There is still room for improvement,” said Low. “Our defence was excellent, they performed very well and I was very happy with our counter-attacks.” He added: “But in terms of closing the space between defence and midfield, I felt sometimes we were too defensive. We will work on this.”

Low nevertheless praised his young side, who dominated the match from start to finish. “It’s always great to see that my team can implement my tactics on the pitch,” he said. “From beginning to end, Australia was rather defensive and we had to change our attacks. I thought we did very well and we scored very nice goals. We tried to go deep down with Klose and Muller while we also kept the ball low and that created problems for Australia’s defence.”
