Press Hails Loew's Germany

MOST COMMENTED

Germany’s normally hyper-critical media was full of praise for Joachim Low and his players after Germany’s devastating 4-0 win against Portugal on Monday. Columnists and commentators were in awe of the way Germany man-handled the Portuguese, who before kickoff were considered their toughest Group G opponent.

"This is going to be our World Cup," Germany daily Bild declared. Several papers focused on Thomas Muller’s dominating three-goal performance. "Muller destroys Portugal," came the headline in Die Welt. Conservative paper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung said, "everything went perfectly against Portugal. Everything Loew planned worked out well.” The paper added that Germany had "made Portugal dizzy with the way they played."

Sueddeutsche Zeitung in Munich said the only blemish on the night was the injury to center back Mats Hummels, scorer of Germany’s second goal from a corner. "Germany opens its tournament with other-worldly strength," wrote Sueddeutsche. "The start of the World Cup could not have been any better for the Germany team. Muller was brilliant with his three goals."
