The defending champions failed to advance from the group stage for the first time in their history after finishing bottom of Group F in Russia.

According to the German daily Bild, Low took five days to think everything over following Die Mannschaft's elimination, and decided to continue to coach the national team.

Low took charge of Germany in 2006, having been promoted from his role as assistant coach. He steered the team to glory in both the 2014 World Cup and the 2017 Confederations Cup.

Under his leadership, the team also finished runners-up at Euro 2008 and claimed the third place at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

In May, Low extended his contract with the German Football Association (DFB) till 2022.

Prior to that fateful game against South Korea, DFB president Renhard Grindel had voiced his backing of the 58 year-old.

โ€œThe DFB management decided to extend Lowโ€™s contract before the World Cup because we believe that the changes that will take place after the World Cup, regardless of the results, will be best carried out by Jogi Low," he said.
