Germany coach Joachim Low agrees contract extension to 2022

"We will extend the contract of Joachim Loew and the entire training team until 2022".

The German Football Association (DFB) announced on Tuesday at the unveiling of the defending champions list for the Mundial with the 58-year-old signed a four-year deal through to 2022 including his assistant Thomas Schneider and goalkeeping coach Andreas Kopke. "He has little worldwide experience but he will grow with the task", Loew said.

Reus, meanwhile, finally has a chance to play in a World Cup, having returned to form and fitness at Borussia Dortmund since his comeback from injury in February. "But you can not go into such a tournament without match practice".

Joachim Low says "things look good" for Manuel Neuer as the Germany captain races to be fit for his country's World Cup defence.

He also missed Euro 2016 through injury.

Mario Gomez could add to his 73 caps in Russian Federation, having previously played in Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup, Euro 2012 and Euro 2016.

Co-Pilot Flies Halfway Out of Broken Cockpit
The co-pilot nearly got sucked out of the cockpit but kept calm, according to Chinese state television station CCTV. In recent weeks, window-related accidents on planes have resulted in one death and four other emergency landings .

Low instead selected Stuttgart's Mario Gomez and uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen, who scored 15 league goals this past season - a record eight as a substitute and five from the penalty spot.

Die Mannschaft's final warm-up games are against Austria on June 3 and Saudi Arabia on June 8.

"Then we want to get a full idea, talk to him frankly and honestly, asking 'is it possible to play at the World Cup?'"

Germany will face Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in Group F at next month's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"This is a big responsibility to continue developing players", he said.

Loew has been in charge for 160 matches, winning 106, more than any other Germany coach.
