German Football Team Coach Joachim Loew Achieves 100 International Wins Sunday June 25,2017

Joachim Loew was proud to become the first head coach to achieve 100 international wins as Sunday June 25,2017 's 3-1 victory over Cameroon put Germany into the Confederations Cup semi-finals.

The victory in Loew's 150th match in charge also maintained his impressive record of reaching at least the semi-finals of every tournament over the last decade

"Yes, of course, I am very happy. It's a nice figure," said Loew who succeeded Jurgen Klinsmann as national coach in August 2006.

"It reminds me of those people who have been with me from the beginning like (current team manager) Oliver Bierhoff and (goalkeeping coach) Andreas Koepke."

"Hansi Flick (Loew's assistant when Germany won the 2014 World Cup) also played a role and I need to thank them all.

"Also the players, many of whom aren't here today, must be thanked for their passion, attitude and skills, which allowed us to chalk up those victories."

He added: "There have been ups and downs, we often got to semi-finals, but never made it but the win in the Maracana (2014 World Cup final) was a crowning moment."
