Joachim Loew slammed "sloppy" Germany as the world champions crashed to a 2-1 defeat by Austria on Manuel Neuer's comeback to leave them winless in their last five games.However, when the Germany defense buckled in the second half, Neuer was powerless to stop Martin Hinteregger and Alessandro Schoepf scoring after Mesut Ozil had given the Germans an early lead.However, Loew was keeping calm with one eye on the World Cup.Despite missing out on 259 days with a fractured foot, Neuer looked sharp but Loew says he will see how his goalkeeper's problematic left foot reacts.Loew must cut four names Monday before Germany name their final 23-man World Cup squad and several players have reason to worry.
