Löw to stick with ‘lucky’ blue sweater for semi-final

Löw claimed on Monday he was not superstitious but admitted that pressure from other coaching staff and players to keep wearing his familiar sweater had paid off ahead of their World Cup clash with Spain in Durban on Wednesday.

“The thing with the sweater is that I am not driven by superstition,” a smiling Löw told reporters. “The other coaching staff said I should be wearing the sweater now because every time I wear it we score four goals.”

Germany beat England 4-1 in the second round and reached the semi-finals following a 4-0 demolition of Argentina, with Löw donning the V-necked garment each time.

“I am not even allowed to wash it now and I think I will wear it again (against Spain),” Löw said.

Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger also hoped to see his coach wearing it at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

“I do not know how many sweaters he has that are blue. But I hope he has the one or two left in his suitcase,” he said.

    The road to the final has not yet come to an end; the party will go on. In South Africa, Germany and Malaysia. We are all one team. And we all have a very big goal. Together we can do it! GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL. WE LOVE YOU.
