Germany can beat anyone: Low confident of putting Italy hoodoo to bed

Low was asked why Germany are always here at this stage of a competition — this is their fourth semi-final in as many tournaments — and why, by this stage, England have usually returned home.

‘I don’t know why,’ he said. ‘It’s hard to answer. The English were much better in this tournament than in 2010. When they played us then, they were a team who had a lot of problems.

‘Here they were a very well organised team. Roy Hodgson has brought order into the side and has done a great job.

‘England will develop under him in the next few years and, in the next tournament, they’ll play a better role than they did here and certainly than they did in 2010.’
