You cannot give 80 per cent, Low warns players

The 52-year-old has urged his squad to repeat the performance they put in during November's 3-0 friendly win over Oranje when the two teams meet on Wednesday evening
Joachim Low has warned his Germany squad that anything less than a full-throttle performance against Netherlands will not be good enough.

Die Mannschaft cruised to a 3-0 victory over their north-western neighbours in a November friendly in Hamburg's Imtech Arena, and the 52-year-old has urged his players to repeat that dominant performance.

"Eighty per cent is not good enough," the former Fenerbahce boss screamed at his players after a misplaced pass in training, according to Kicker.

"You cannot do it when you only give 80%! You must play like you did in Hamburg!"

Germany and Netherlands kick off at 20:45CET on Wednesday, with die Mannschaft looking to build on their 1-0 victory over Portugal in their opening group game.
