Loew “very content” after Germany stun Netherlands with late winner

SHOWS: AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS (MARCH 24, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMANY COACH, JOACHIM LOEW, SAYING: "Simply from the beginning, at the start of the week, when we met, I had the feeling that the team could bring the power they had on the pitch.

We had a couple of good chances.

That was my opinion before the game in France and also the home game against the Netherlands.

Our young team was very good, but we didn't reward ourselves then.

But today we were able to make our strength a reality.

Of course, I felt good after the game.

I'm very content, very content." STORY: Germany coach Joachim Loew said he was "very content" after his new-look side beat the Netherlands 3-2 with a late winner by defender Nico Schulz in their opening Euro 2020 Group C qualifier on Sunday (March 24).

Germany had seemed well set for victory after a superb first half produced goals for Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry to give Loew an unexpected boost as he seeks to restore the flagging fortunes of the 2014 world champions.

Loew said his young team played well and finally made their "strength a reality" in the absorbing clash that swung in fortunes from one side to the other.

But some of the frailties of the last 12 months returned as they let their grip on the game slip, with Memphis Depay laying on a goal for Matthijs de Ligt and then scoring the equaliser himself in another influential display from the in-form forward.

Wing-back Schulz produced the decisive moment of the match when he netted in the final minute after a fine build-up down the left to re-establish Germany's advantage and claim a crucial victory to get their qualifying campaign underway.
