When does Bayern Munich play again?

Anyway, for anyone hoping that Germany manager Joachim Löw might be relieved of his duties prior to the European Championships in the wake of Die Mannschaft’s stunning, devastating, and embarrassing 2-1 loss to North Macedonia, you’re going to be disappointed.

Sport1 reporter Florian Plettenberg released a tweet stating that “early dismissal is not an issue” for the DFB as it pertains to Löw and that there are “no signs” he will resign:

Update #Löw: Early dismissal is not an issue for the DFB management. There are also no signs from Löw to resign before the EM. The 1:2 disgrace caused the bosses to shake their heads. Tenor: “This performance is inexplicable.” @SPORT1

While this news should be wholly expected, there was some online furor in the postgame chaos where some folks hoped Löw would either resign or be relieved of his duties. The 61-year-old will clearly see this through even if Germany looks like it could flame out early in a Euro 2020 competition where it is grouped with France, Portugal, and Hungary.
