On October 8, the German team drew 3-3 with Turkey. In the game, the German team led three times, but they were all equalized by Turkey. After the game, German team star and commentator Matthaus criticized Loew.
After the game, Loew mentioned his views on the game: "It was again at the last minute (losing the ball), which made us feel disappointed and helpless."
The German team star Mateus criticized Loew: "The German team has already led (and then been equalized) five times. The match against Turkey accounted for three times. Loew's tactical errors caused the German team to lose. The price of the game. I was surprised when I saw many players like Schultz who played on the bench in the club and started for the German team. That’s why no one wants to turn on the TV to watch the German team’s game."
