It was another troubling night for Joachim Loew and his reputation as a successful German coach, as his national side just about stumbled to victory against Chile in a 1-0 win in Stuttgart on Wednesday.
The scoreline was just about the only thing that could be considered a victory. The home side began the game on the back foot and either seemed content or couldn't do anything about the domination from the South American side.
Of course, Chile are by no means a minor side on the international scene, but this match was one that German fans and critics alike had looked forward to in the hope of seeing the next stage of Loew's plans.
This German side have huge expectations to live up to in this summer's World Cup, yet with every passing game, it seems as though the task is getting more unmanageable with this current coach in charge.
Here's what we took from Wednesday's game.
