While we're busy celebrating an unlikely draw the Germans, and indeed all of Europe, are currently wondering what the hell has happened to the World champions. This is their worst start to a qualifying campaign in their history, and they are blaming no one but themselves.
Here's how Joachim Low, the players and news sources across Europe reacted to the 1-1 draw.
'Victory slipped away at the last second.'
'As in Warsaw. Löw's players showed an amazing helplessness. Far removed from their Brazilian performance level, where they were biting and inspired.'
'Kroos was not enough to beat an outstanding Ireland'
La Gazzetta dello Sport (Italy)
'Germany: The Crisis Continues'
