Now comes the moment of truth for Loew's Germany.As any Germany fan knows, die Mannschaft have never beaten Italy at either a World Cup or Euro finals in eight attempts.Two years after right-back Philipp Lahm and striker Miroslav Klose retired, Loew has yet to settle on full-time replacements.Loew, Mario Goetze and Thomas Mueller have all bitten back at thinly-veiled criticism from the German media in news conferences in France.Michael Ballack, Loew's captain at Euro 2008 when they lost the final to Spain, has been the loudest critic of Loew's side.Mario Gomez's early penalty was cancelled out by three unanswered goals from Marek Hamsik, Michal Duris and Juraj Kucka as Loew blooded four new caps.Both forwards Goetze and Thomas Mueller have yet to get on the scoresheet.Loew will celebrate a decade in charge after Euro 2016 and under his guidance, Germany have always reached at least the last four at major tournaments.
