The German coach has made it clear that the Manschafft at least want to make it to the final...
"We're eagerly anticipating the draw. That's when the World Cup really starts for us," was Loew quoted as saying by reporters.
"We are going to South Africa to go all the way. And once we've reached the final, we want to win it as well. We really want our fourth World Cup win.
"Big tournaments are the perfect occasion to make history, especially World Cups. This is the chance for players to shine in front of the entire world.
"This World Cup will be a very even and intense tournament. I expect football of the highest level.
"There are always one or two surprising teams at tournaments like this and I'm looking forward to discovering what teams are capable of surprising the world."
