Germany coach Joachim Löw is to "fundamentally review the current situation of the national team" after last week's 6-0 humiliation in the UEFA Nations League against Spain in Sevilla, the German Football Association announced on Monday.


Löw's analysis will then be presented to the DFB Executive Committee, which will make a decision on his future as Germany coach. The deadline is December 4.

The committee wants the Germany coach to "analyze the causes of the clear defeat in Sevilla" and to reflect on his "experiences from the defeat against Spain" as well as "the overall development of the team over the past two years".

Löw was appointed Germany coach in 2006 and led 'Die Mannschaft' to the World Cup title in 2014.

The 60-year-old has faced heavy criticism in recent years, particularly following Germany's dismal World Cup campaign in 2018 that saw them crash out at the group stages.

His contract expires in 2022.
