Low Hails Dominant Germans

German coach, Joachim Low, says that his side were far superior in every aspect of the game after thrashing Portugal 4-0 in their opening Group G, 2014 FIFA World Cup match on Monday.

A hat-trick from Thomas Muller and a headed goal from Mat Hummels handed Germany all three points which sees them top their World Cup group.

Speaking after the match Low insists his side were better than Portugal in every area of the park and commended both Muller for his goals and Jerome Boateng for keeping Cristiano Ronaldo quiet.

“Winning was our only option and the team went out there with that in mind,” said Low.

“Thomas (Muller) did really well in attack and created a lot of space for us.

“We dominated the midfield and got the ball up to the forwards, where we were very fast.

“We were compact and stopped Portugal from launching counter-attacks.

“The second half was different, because the main thing for us was to keep possession of the ball and hit them on the break.

“(Jerome) Boateng also did a very good job of marking Cristiano Ronaldo.”
