Defensive woes as Germany concede more than three goals in a game for the first time under Joachim Löw, and lose two consecutive games for only the second time
"We are disappointed with this result," said Löw. "We knew that we would be lacking freshness ahead of this game after intensive training sessions over the last few days. Our communication was poor and thus we conceded five goals. It was only a friendly match and there's a lot to be learned from this game. We made a lot of mistakes, but we still have two weeks and I'm not worried."Match reports - 26/27 May 2012:

Joachim Löw: "Die Konzentration hat gefehlt" - Jogi talks to dfb.de. He describes the German defence as 'not exactly outstanding', and says Miroslav Klose and Per Mertesacker are still short of match practice. Debutant goalie Marc-André ter Stegen should not 'hang his head', and speaking of the players who will have to leave the squad on Monday, he said it would be tough, but it would be good that they had been with the squad.

And he tells how Swiss coach Ottmar Hitzfeld gave him a word of encouragement at the end - by saying how in 2010 Switzerland had beaten Spain, who then went on to become World Champions!

An interview with Jogi, originally on the Nivea website, before the Switzerland game.
"The game comes at the right time." he said at the pre-match press conference in Tourettes, the German training base for the past week. "Switzerland is a very good opponent for us, possibly a small Holland." - 25 May 2012Schalke's Julian Draxler will make his international debut. A back four of Benedict Höwedes, Per Mertesacker, Mats Hummels and Marcel Schmelzer will be used, to try out the full-back formation and which side Philipp Lahm should play. Mesut Özil and Sami Khedira will start, but will not play the full 90 minutes. Ilkay Gündogan will play. Jogi described him as a 'little Schweinsteiger'. - from t-online
