Germany coach Joachim Loew believes die Mannschaft's historic World Cup win at Brazil 2014 will be the stepping stone to achieving further future honours.The Germans will be the team to beat when qualification for Euro 2016 in France begins in September after Loew again managed to coax eye-catching performances out of a young side at a World Cup.It leaves world-class goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, 28, midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, who turns 30 in a fortnight, and captain Philipp Lahm, 30 and 36-year-old striker Miroslav Klose as the squad's senior statesmen.Loew also said Germany have benefited from the rise of Bundesliga teams in the Champions League after Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund contested the 2013 final, giving his squad more valuable experience.
