Loew fumes as 'sloppy' Germany crash on Neuer's return

Loew fumes as 'sloppy' Germany crash on Neuer's return

And the game was turned on its head when Alessandro Schopf drilled home Stefan Lainer's clever cut-back in the 69th-minute.

Germany chief coach Joachim Loew said: "It's a frustrating defeat because we didn't implement a lot of what we had talked about".

The loss on Saturday evening was the last match before the final 23-man World Cup squad announcement on Monday, according to the German football federation's website.

Austria gifted their bigger neighbours an eleventh minute lead when goalkeeper Joerg Siebenhandl sent a terrible clearance straight to Mesut Ozil who scored from just inside the penalty area.

"For the moment everything is on plan for Manuel Neuer". "We lost too many balls which normally doesn't happen with us, we missed chances after the goal, a lot of things were bad today".

It ensured Austria their first win over Germany in 32 years and maintained Franco Foda's 100% record since becoming their coach last November, BBC reports.

The match was delayed for over an hour due to inclement weather at the stadium.

That changed after 11 minutes, though, thanks to Siebenhandl's mistake.

Neuer saved an effort from close range by Marko Arnautovic just minutes later but wasn't to blame for Schoepf's winning goal in the 69th after an excellent team move that split open the German defense.

Austria's midfielder Alessandro Schoepf celebrates scoring with his team-mates defender Aleksandar Dragovic and defender Stefan Lainer during the worldwide friendly footbal match Austria v Germany in Klagenfurt, Austria, on June 2, 2018.

The injury was the key talking point after Belgium's 0-0 draw with Portugal as both sides showed attacking intent but no killer blow less than two weeks before the World Cup begins.

Rudy was not to blame, but Germany lost their shape as the hosts came flying out of the blocks for the second half and kept the world champions' defence under pressure.

Neuer could only look on in amazement as Martin Hinteregger rifled in a spectacular first-time volley at the back post.

On 67 minutes, Loew sent on Timo Werner and Marcos Reus for Julian Brandt and Sané.

Germany will look to get their preparations back on track when Saudi Arabia travel to Leverkusen on Friday, before starting their bid to retain the World Cup against Group F rivals Mexico on June 17.
