There was a milestone victory for Joachim Löw on Sunday, in what was also a milestone game for the Germany coach. Die Mannschaft’s 3-1 win over Cameroon in their final FIFA Confederations Cup group game was the 100th of Löw’s tenure in the Germany dugout, which now totals 150 matches.
There have also been 27 draws and 23 defeats for the 57-year-old since he took the helm in August 2006. The world-champion coach took over from Jürgen Klinsmann following the home World Cup eleven years ago and is already the most successful Germany head coach in history. Die Mannschaft are also enjoying a 13-game unbeaten run at the moment, winning ten of those fixtures. Löw’s last defeat came eleven months and 18 days ago in Marseille, with hosts France winning 2-0 in the EURO 2016 semi-finals.
The 3-1 Confed Cup victory over Cameroon was the 930th game in the Germany national team’s history and their overall record remains a positive one. Since a 5-3 loss to Switzerland on 5th April 1908, there have been 543 wins, 187 draws and a further 199 defeats, with Germany scoring 2,091 goals and conceded 1,094.
