Low: We will still attack

Germany coach Joachim Low believes his side's attacking football can be successful at next summer's World Cup after concluding a visit to host nation Brazil during the Confederations Cup.

Low checked out where Germany's base for the finals could be, should they qualify, and assessed the conditions they can expect in a year's time.

Despite expressing his concerns about the heat, he does not plan to adapt his team's style.

"We're just going to have to try to impose our style of play more," he said.

"We have a good switching play between defence and attack - getting into a shooting position quickly when in possession - and doing so before our opponents get the chance to regroup.

"That's essential in modern football and that will be the key in 2014 in Brazil too.

"We certainly will not be able to change our style of play."

Low plans to take his squad to Brazil well in advance of the tournament in order to acclimatise, and reckons how the players recuperate from the domestic and European season - and between matches - will be key.

That will also play a big role in Low's decision as to where Germany will be based next summer.

"The schedule may force you into long journeys," he said on the website of the German Football Association (DFB).

"It is unusual for European sides, but you've got to get used to it. Brazil or Mexico, who are also at the Confederations Cup, but also nations like Argentina or Ecuador, certainly have more experience.

"But I am not too concerned by it. We will have a bit of time to settle in beforehand.

"Anybody who thinks you can win something here with destructive football is completely mistaken."
