Germany coach Joachim Low said his youthful Confederations Cup squad would go down in history after their triumph in Russia.
A first-half goal from Lars Stindl saw Low’s men to a 1-0 win over Chile in Sunday’s final, giving the proud nation their first Confederations Cup crown.
Low took a gamble by leaving first-choice stars like Thomas Mueller, Jerome Boateng, Toni Kroos and Mesut Ozil at home and bringing inexperienced youngsters to Russia.
The fifty-four year old said the achievement would go down in history and would never be forgotten.
“It is worth a lot, because Germany has never won this trophy in our history,” he said at a news conference.
“So this team and this victory will go down in history. The team absolutely deserved it and that’s why we’re all super happy.
“It’s heavier than the World Cup.”
