Austria - Matin Hinteregger 53', Alessandro Schöpf 69'
Germany - Mesut Özil 11'
After a substantial delay of over an hour-and-a-half due to torrential rain and some doubt the match would go ahead, Germany lose a half-time lead in their first defeat to Austria in 32 years. As usual, few acknowledge that Jogi always uses such games to experiment and see what does, and what doesn't, work.
"It's a frustrating defeat because we didn't implement a lot of what we had talked about. We played decent football at times in the first half, but then we just stopped clicking. We allowed Austria to put in crosses and get shots away. There's a lot to digest."

"The defeat is annoying but I'm pleased with Manu's comeback. I will talk to him once more tomorrow before making the final decision whether or not he will go to the World Cup."
"I said a few moments ago that I am upset," Low said. "I am not upset about the loss, not upset about losing the game, I am upset about the way we lost it.He added "Normally when we take the lead we are good at making the opponents chase. Then we seemed to get tired and we could have wrapped the game up earlier."
"Concerning Manuel Neuer, yes, I think it was a very satisfying comeback," said Low. "He doesn't have any problems with his foot after the game, that's important. And the second thing was that he reacted great in many situations, he reacted fast.Asked if he was worried about the World Cup just around the corner, he replied "I accept days like this. The team would have been prepared totally differently in two week time. I won't lose any sleep over this. No worries. But if were to play like that in Russia we will struggle. There is a lot to digest, but we won't let ourselves get worked up about this. We will remain calm."

And Jogi's feelings during the lengthy delay? "I was going all over the place. Good thing it was only a friendly. But we wanted to avoid injury. The pitch then became playable."

Jogi added "Austria are a really good team. Four wins in four under Franco Foda's management, including against Uruguay, speak for themselves. Austria are flexible and have a good structure: It will take a lot to beat them." He explained it would be completely different scenario to the recent games against the Germany U20's. In those matches they could, of course, influence how their opponents played.
