In the Interview: German Football Association President Wolfgang Niersbach
Even the president of Germany's football association was impressed by Germany's start to the 2014 World Cup. Wolfgang Niersbach believes that Joachim Löw's side are capable of winning the tournament.
European football officials have urged FIFA President Sepp Blatter to step down, hours ahead of the World Cup in Brazil. Corruption allegations, most recently over Qatar's nomination as 2022 hosts, are hounding FIFA.
The German Football Federation (DFB) has approved Wolfgang Niersbach as its president for another three years. The decision comes only a day after Niersbach announced Germany’s bid to host the Euro 2024 championship.
Germany coach Joachim Löw has agreed to extend his contract until 2016, the German Football Federation (DFB) has said. The deal means Löw will see Germany through the 2014 World Cup and 2016 European Championship.
