Boss Joachim Low is convinced Germany have improved since their World Cup 2018 embarrassment.
The holders were tipped to retain their trophy pre-tournament, but finished bottom of Group F and were eliminated in the opening stage.
Low, 58, was quizzed about Die Mannschaft’s recovery at this week’s The Best FIFA Football Awards.
Watch his answer below.
It’s been two months since Kieran Trippier scored that sensational free-kick against Croatia in the World Cup semi-final and the man himself admits he still continues to watch goal regularly.
The Tottenham player put England in the driving seat early and on course of reaching their first World Cup final since 1966 when he struck in the fifth minute. But Croatia battled back to seal a 2-1 extra-time victory in Russia.
While it was a painful defeat for his team, Trippier says he has watched his goal back again around 100 times.
Watch what he said below:
Scaloni, a former Argentina right-back whose clubs included Lazio and West Ham, was Sampaoli’s assistant as the national team were eliminated by France at the last-16 stage in Russia.
Sampaoli left his post last month amid rumours of a dressing-room coup in which it was claimed that senior players Javier Mascherano and Lionel Messi had effectively taken up the reins.
Scaloni will be in charge of Argentina for next month’s friendlies against Guatemala and Colombia.
He will be assisted by Pablo Aimar and goalkeeping coach Martin Tocalli.
The Argentinian football Association’s statement read: “The AFA informs that, after the meeting of the executive committee, Lionel Scaloni will direct the next friendlies of the Argentine national team, along with his assistants Pablo Aimar and Martin Tocalli.”
