Löw not too worried after Germany suffer defeat to Brazil

Löw not too worried after Germany suffer defeat to Brazil

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus powered in a first-half header in Berlin as Brazil gained a measure of revenge for the 7-1 demolition by Joachim Loew's side in the 2014 World Cup semi-finals.

With Thomas Mueller and Mesut Ozil rested, Boateng and Toni Kroos were the only members of the Germany team which routed Brazil almost four years ago.

Germany, who made six changes from their 1-1 draw with Spain on Friday, huffed and puffed, but ultimately only produced one shot on target the whole game, Alisson pushing Julian Draxler's injury-time effort over the bar.

Brazil defender Thiago Silva believes the Seleção should be respected even more after their latest triumph over 2014 FIFA World Cup champions Germany on Tuesday in their own playground at the Olympiastadion.

"Our best player was out", Tite said of the match at Berlin's Olympic stadium. "But people won't forget about it just because we won".

Gabriel Jesus headed in the victor in the 37 minute as Brazil, beaten just once under coach Tite and missing injured talisman Neymar, beat a second-string German team to restore some pride. "We need to improve on many fronts".

Brazil coach Tite has heaped praise on his side for learning how to win against strong opposition without their injured star Neymar.

"It wasn't our day". We made too many silly mistakes that made it easy for Brazil. "I think the ruling is "clear and obvious" and it's not".

Only two World Cup winners - Kroos and stand-in captain Boateng - started against the Selecao.

With the 2018 competition now just weeks away, the Germans are once again considered one of the favourites but Real Madrid midfielder Kroos believes that they can not let the hype get to them after their latest setback.

"There were a few players who had the chance to show what they could do, but didn't take it - that's annoying", said the Real Madrid midfielder.

"He was also playing a "comeback" match because it's been a while since he played a full game, it'll do him a lot of good".

"We saw today that we aren't as good as we are made out to be and as some players believe".

Defending world champions are now winless in their last four games after draws against England, France and Spain.
