It's been a disastrous six months for Germany with Nations League relegation following a flimsy World Cup title defence.
Joachim Low looked perplexed time and again during Germany's dire Nations League campaign. They slumped to bottom position in their group which means relegation to League B for the next edition of the competition.
That alone hardly signifies a crisis, particularly with Germany being in a group including world champions France and a Netherlands side that have looked electric in what has been a redemption campaign for them after a bad couple of years.
However, that's not all Germany have been through in the last year. This also comes on the back of a World Cup title defence that could barely have gone any worse.
