Germany’s manager, Joachim Low admitted his side were poor and made ‘too many mistakes’ following their defeat to Brazil on Tuesday.
Manchester City forward, Gabriel Jesus was the difference as Brazil defeated Germany 1-0 in a pre-world cup friendly match in Berlin.

Jesus scored the only goal just before break as the five-time world champions ended Germany’s 22-game unbeaten streak.
“We made too many simple mistakes and it was too easy for Brazil,” Low said moments after the game. “Every single player can obviously play better.”
It was the first meeting between the two heavyweights, since the hosts ended their visitors’ world cup dream following that 7-1 victory back in 2014.
