Football: Shellshocked Loew unable to explain historic Germany defeat to Spain

Spain ran out as surprising 6-0 winners in the UEFA Nations League A group, with Torres picking up a hat trick in the process, showcasing just why Manchester City made a decision to spend £21m on him.

Werner's two latest goals for Germany, and eight goals in 12 Premier League games, seem to give evidence the German coach at least has found his ideal formation for his front line.

Loew led Germany to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but the credit from that triumph was largely dissipated by the debacle at the 2018 finals in Russian Federation when Germany crashed out in the group phase. West Germany went on to beat Hungary in the final.

'But that was not to happen, instead a scoring of historic proportions began: the highest defeat since a 6-0 draw against Austria - in 1931'. That game is now tied on the list of the heaviest ever German losses. They agreed that Löw will stay as Germany coach despite yesterday's painful defeat.

Joachim Low is still the right man to lead Germany down a "rocky path" despite their humiliating 6-0 loss to Spain, according to the country's top football figure. How to play with the ball and without the ball.

Loew brushed the defeat off as a "disastrous day" but the coach, in his 14th year in charge, has now seen his team exit in the first round of a tournament for the third straight time.

Time is running out for Loew to prove he can turn things around before the Euro 2020 finals, postponed from a year ago, kick off in June with Germany in a tough group including reigning champions Portugal and World Cup holders France.

Ross Byrne named at ten for trip to Twickenham
Leinster's James Ryan will captain Ireland in Saturday's Autumn Nations Cup game against England at Twickenham. Replacements: Herring, E Byrne, Bealham, Henderson, Connors, Murray, B Burns, Stockdale.

Emilio Contreras, MARCA assistant director, thinks that: "International matches have to keep being played".

It is no wonder that Guardiola kept him as a false nine while he had the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero injured. He explained the Germany team lacked "body language and body tension" and failed to gain control of the match or their opponents.

"We saw today that we are not as far down the road as we had hoped to be", Loew said of his team's dismal performance against the Spaniards.

He is still a key part of the Spain squad, though suffered a hamstring injury in Tuesday's 6-0 Nations League win over Germany.

Substitute Mikel Oyarzabal tapped in the sixth goal in the 89th minute to adorn an incredible Spain display and deepen four-time world champions Germany's misery.

And this means that the Spanish national team has progressed to the Nations League finals next year at the expense of their German counterparts.
