Neuer finally makes Germany comeback but bad weather delays kick-off against Austria

Neuer finally makes Germany comeback but bad weather delays kick-off against Austria

The playmaker, who is now training with the national team in South Tyrol, is said to be nursing a back injury that saw him sit out the final few games of the domestic season for the Gunners, as reported by the Evening Standard.

Germany's goalkeeper Manuel Neuer (C) fails to save the ball during the global friendly footbal match Austria v Germany in Klagenfurt, Austria, on June 2, 2018.

"I am not upset about the loss, not upset about losing the game, I am upset about the way we lost it", said Low.

He said: "We played decent football at times in the first half, but then we just stopped clicking".

However, when the Germany defence buckled in the second half, Neuer was powerless to stop Martin Hinteregger and Alessandro Schoepf scoring after Mesut Ozil had given the Germans an early lead.

Low's men seemed to fall asleep in the second half following Ozil's opener, and Austria were the far hungrier and determined team after the break.

Austria grew into the game, while Germany became more sloppy as the action went on, and although Joachim Low's charges went ahead at the break, they were pegged back on 53 minutes.

Loew rested key players Toni Kroos, Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng and Thomas Mueller, who all didn't travel with the team to Austria from its training base in South Tyrol, Italy. "He doesn't have any problems with his foot after the game, that's important. We have a lot to work on over the next two weeks".

This was Austria's first win over their neighbours in almost 32 years - dating back to October 1986 when Rudi Voeller scored West Germany's only goal in a 4-1 defeat in Vienna.

Austria's midfielder Alessandro Schoepf celebrates scoring with his team-mates defender Aleksandar Dragovic and defender Stefan Lainer during the worldwide friendly footbal match Austria v Germany in Klagenfurt, Austria, on June 2, 2018.

"It's always great to win, especially against Germany".

"We didn't find our game".

"I'll keep calm and let myself be surprised by whatever happens on Monday", said the ex-Bayern Munich striker.

Germany play their final friendly before Russian Federation 2018 when they host Saudi Arabia in Leverkusen next Friday with their opening World Cup match against Mexico in Moscow on June 17 having also drawn South Korea and Sweden in Group F.
