Russian Federation 2018: Joachim Low extends contract with Germany

The German Football Association (DFB) announced on Tuesday that Low, a former assistant to Jurgen Klinsmann who succeeded the ex-Tottenham striker after a third-place finish at the 2006 tournament on home soil, had signed a four-year contract through to 2022. "He played for us with full commitment and he has a very, very good character".

Petersen's values might not be obvious at first sight but Loew's gut feeling, as he said himself, led him to choose the Freiburg striker over other candidates like Bayern Munich striker Sandro Wagner. Petersen scored six goals to make him the tournament's top scorer.

Germany enjoyed a stunning success over hosts Brazil in the semi-finals, running out 7-1 winners, and went on to beat Argentina in extra-time in the final.
