Led in the score, the Germans managed to equalize at the very end of the match before winning in the terrible penalty shootout.

"It didn't work out in our favour, but I can't blame my players after all they've given. (…) I know what it is, I lost a World Cup final, the biggest match that can exist. But you're always moving forward."
