After the draw for the 2018 World Cup was announced, no one would have foreseen that South Korea would oust Germany.

Low and his players will return to Germany on Thursday, but with the coach dismissing suggestions that dark times could lie ahead.

"We will decide tomorrow who is the most stable psychologically, feeling the least pressure, and he will wear the captain's armband".

"We're out now, but there's still the European Championship", he said, referring to the European Football Championship coming up in 2020. "It shows that with Italy and the Netherlands out before the tournament, Chile, who were in the Confederations Cup final, and now Germany, you can not relax and miss the opportunity to constantly improve".

The Germans had a number of chances but could not convert them to goals.
