Germany 0 Brazil 1: Jesus ends Low's 22-game unbeaten run

Douglas Costa and Marcelo were in high spirits as the side trained in Berlin on Sunday

"We had some players in the team who had the chance to present themselves (ahead of the World Cup squad announcement in May) but they failed to do that".

A goal from Gabriel Jesus gave the South Americans a narrow victory in Berlin that amounts to some form of revenge after they were thumped 7-1 by Germany as the Europeans won the 2014 World Cup.

"We made lots of changes, you could see that".

More worryingly for Germany head coach Joachim Loew ahead of their World Cup defence in Russian Federation, his captain Jerome Boateng twisted his right ankle and was forced off in the second half.

Spain underlined its status as chief contender at this year's World Cup in Russian Federation as it extended its unbeaten run under Julen Lopetegui to 18 matches in sensational fashion in Madrid.

Germany have played Brazil 23 times in their history, their 7-1 victory in the World Cup was somewhat anomalous as the Nationalelf had only beaten Brazil four times prior to that.

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.

"We are not as good as people try to tell us, and maybe even as some of our players think we are".


"So I'm not anxious just because we lost one time 1-0 against Brazil".

Switzerland were in free-scoring form as well, with Blerim Dzemaili, Granit Xhaka, Breel Embolo, Steven Zuber, Josip Drmic and Fabian Frei on target in a 6-0 win over England's World Cup opponents Panama.

Berlin-born Boateng captained Germany after Sami Khedira failed to recover from a back injury.

The 20-year-old Jesus forced Germany goalkeeper Kevin Trapp to push the ball over the bar just before the winning goal came on 38 minutes.

Willian's initial goal-bound effort was blocked and fell invitingly at the feet of Paulinho, who unleashed a powerful drive that was turned behind by Trapp.

Jesus really should have netted a second after 67 minutes, failing to turn home a back-post header after Trapp abandoned his goal attempting to claim a corner.

Loew added a second striker for the final 10 minutes when RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner replaced Ilkay Gundogan as Germany finished strongly, but to no avail.

"Tonight we knew how to suffer and defend, but above all, we finished our World Cup preparation on a high note".
