Germany manager Joachim Löw was certainly sweating out his team’s 2-2 draw with Hungary. Seeing his squad trail for almost the entirety of the match, Löw was happy to see Germany continue to push and fight through the adversity.

“We showed extremely good morale and fought until the equalizer fell. It was not for the faint of heart. We knew that Hungary would defend everything and run in, just like against France. The fact that we fell behind again right after the 1:1 was kind of bad,” Löw said (as captured by Tz). “In the end, you have to say, advancing through this group was good. You can see that other teams are struggling, like France or Spain. The so-called ‘little ones’ defend with everything they have and have nothing to lose.”

After earning the draw, Germany will now face England at Wembley Stadium, which should be an intense battle between two traditional powers.

“It’s an absolute highlight to play England at Wembley,” said Löw. “And I promise that we will do better.”
