MOST COMMENTED

A second-place finish at Euro 2008 and third place at the World Cup has earned Joachim Loew another two years in charge of the German national team.

Loew, an assistant coach under Juergen Klinsmann, took over from the former German international striker after the 2006 World Cup. Germany has won 38 of 55 matches under the direction of Loew, who has also implemented changes in the national team programs and its development of players.

German soccer federation (DFB) president Theo Zwanziger said he was delighted to have retained Low's services. Discussions of a new contract had broken down prior to the World Cup, but the two sides resumed discussions after Germany beat Uruguay to match a third-place finish in the 2006 competition.

    "implemented changes in the national team programs and its development of players"? Sounds like we need him to coach the USA.
