In the final leg of England vs. Germany, Joachim Löw was seen on the official European Championship broadcast picking his nose
Joachim Löw said goodbye at England vs. Germany, the last game he led as coach of the national team.
In addition to the hard defeat (2-0) in the round of 16 of the European Championship, the DT is appearing on social networks after being caught picking his nose to repeat an unpleasant gesture for which in the past was already a point of criticism.
The images of the official broadcast showed the German strategist observing from the assigned area what was happening inside the field: a wasted chance to discount at minute 89 ′.

Immediately, the cameras focused on the 2014 world champion in Brazil, putting his fingers in his nostrils and then putting the content in his mouth.
It is not the first time that ‘Jogi’ Löw has been ‘captured’ on television making these gestures.
There are antecedents during the last World Cup in Russia 2018, the day they faced the Swedish team. Further back, also the most important competition of national teams did the same, but in South Africa 2010.
Other actions for which Löw was singled out occurred when he placed his hand inside his armpits or on the front of his pants and then brought it to his nose and sniffed. All this, as in the previous times and this Tuesday in the Eurocup, near the substitutes’ bench.
The end of an era
Joachim Löw took over as Germany coach in 2006 after the World Cup organized by his country. Since then, the DT won the World Cup in Brazil 2014 and the Confederations Cup in 2017.
The coach will keep the thorn of the Eurocup, a tournament in which he was runner-up in 2008, then reached two semifinals and a round of 16 final.
Since his debut in a friendly against Sweden in 2006, Löw has led a total of 198 games to become the most-managed national team. He also has the record for the most wins: 124. His numbers are closed with 40 draws and 33 losses.
