Low: We Must Adjust

Germany boss Joachim Low believes that his side will have to be well prepared if they want to perform in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The Germans have been clinical in qualifying, and currently top their group with 16 points - five clear of Austria, Sweden and the Republic of Ireland.

Although they are expected to arrive in South America as contenders for the trophy, Low admits that it will not be an easy road to the final - especially in Brazil.

"We must adjust, and tactically too," the 53-year-old told SID.

"The Central and South Americans have an advantage but I'm not too worried as we have some time before the tournament to adapt to the location. Good physical conditioning is essential for success.

"We certainly will not be able to change our style of play so we must try to get the players on site as quickly as possible.

"Organisationally it is also very difficult," he said in regard to the size of the country.

And despite the current protests in the country, Low is expecting a friendly atmosphere at the event.

"The joy of the Brazilians in football is a wonderful thing no matter where you go," the former Freiburg player added.

"The stadiums are full - it is incredible feeling for me and the anticipation ahead of the World Cup has risen to a higher level.

"It is understandable if the people are protesting for more education and better living conditions."
