(SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMANY COACH, JOACHIM LOEW, SAYING: (ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL TRANSLATION) "We mainly must work at methods and the team still needs to find itself.
We noticed in the first half a lack of automatics.
The second half was already better.
We must work this out in the coming games.
The spirit in the team is good but there are also new players who were not often in the squad.
We need to create a new order.
We are in the middle of a discovery process." STORY: Germany coach Joachim Loew says his side "still needs to find itself" as the struggling team prepare to face the Netherlands in a Euro 2020 qualifier in Amsterdam on Sunday (March 24).
Following a training session in Amsterdam on Saturday (March 23) Loew said the new-look Germany need to "create a new order" as they work through a "discovery process" with several new players in the squad.
The Germans lost 3-0 to the Dutch last October and gave up the lead to draw 2-2 with their rival in Gelsenkirchen one month later.
The Netherlands beat Belarus 4-0 in Rotterdam on Thursday (March 21) in their opening Group C qualifier, a day after Germany proved unconvincing in a 1-1 draw at home to Serbia in an international friendly.
