Former long-time Bundestrainer Joachim Löw has commented on the dire straights of the German national team after Julian Nagelsmann's squad dropped both of its fixtures over the international break. The 63-year-old struck an optimistic tone about the program he once led. In particular, Löw singled out midfielders Joshua Kimmich and defender Antonio Rüdiger as players he was especially impressed with despite the two losses.

"Such players have the right attitude," Löw told Germany's "Sport Bild" tabloid, "German [footballing] virtues and passion are everything. Of course, that's not enough to be successful. The English and Argentines fight and hustle in the same way. We have to find tactical solutions and playful attitudes. It all begins in individual training."

Löw made certain to emphasize that he believed that the "tactical solutions" would come. The gaffer who led Germany to the 2014 World Championship has remained consistently supportive of both Bundestrainers - Nagelsmann and former assistant Hans Dieter Flick - to come after him.

"He's a young coach with good ideas and lots of experience," Löw said of Nagelsmann, "You can't judge him after four games. I'm sure he'll find the solutions."
