The old saying goes that hindsight is 20/20 — and any coach, at any level can attest to the second-guessing that occurs.
It comes with the territory for any high-profile coach, but Joachim Löw was not ready to deal with second-guessing himself just yet.
When asked in the postgame media access if he had any regrets about how he handled the European Championships, Löw was not quite ready to answer the question.
“What? Everyone makes mistakes. A coach always sets up to the best of his knowledge and belief. At that moment, it’s a difficult question for me,” Löw said.
When the conversation shifted to how Germany might develop in the coming years, Löw seemed to bypass the 2022 World Cup and instead identified the 2024 European Championships as something fans should look forward to.
“I think that some players will develop and learn from it. At the home European Championship in 2024, you can already expect a lot, some players will be at a high level by then,” Löw said.
