Joachim Low believes Germany must learn from their November internationals, despite not being able to invent a victory after needing a stoppage-time equaliser from substitute Lars Stindl to secure a 2-2 draw against France in Cologne.
“I am very satisfied with the two test games. We have achieved good results against two strong opponents at a high level, because both England and France have excellent individual players,” Low said at a press conference, as reported on Germany’s official website.
“It was important that we did not become nervous today after going behind and kept to our own game.
“If we are able to play with pressure, then we can also get good chances.
“Playing the ball at the right time is a great art in football, and we solved that very well today.”
Borussia Dortmund midfielder Gotze also felt Germany should take plenty of encouragement as they fine-tune preparations for next summer.
“That was a positive story for us and was a step in the right direction,” he said. “I’m happy to be back with the team again. This was a great thing for me tonight.”
