If there was one thing which Germany coach Joachim Low was disappointed about after a 1-0 win over England at Wembley on Tuesday night, it was that he had to wait right up until the final whistle to be assured of victory.

According to Low, his side should have finished England off sooner and not left them with a sniff of a chance right to the very end.

"We should have made it 2-0 and decided the game earlier," he said. "That's what bothered me a bit, but we were very, very composed on the ball and switched well between defence and attack with everybody helping out defensively.

"You never got the feeling that England were capable of outplaying us."

Low used the final international friendly of 2013 to try out a few different options, leaving captain Philipp Lahm and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer behind in Munich and handing Roman Weidenfeller his first cap between the posts.

However, more than a test, Weidenfeller spent much of the game as a spectator, watching only one Andros Townsend shot beat him, but hit the post.

"There wasn't that much for me to do as a goalkeeper today," Weidenfeller told Germany's ARD television.

"Long may it continue. I'm delighted to have been involved and am letting it all sink in. A 1-0 win in Wembley - it doesn't get much better than this."

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
