Germany coach Joachim Low calls for calm in the wake of his side's Euro 2016 qualifying loss to Poland.

Germany coach Joachim Low has refused to panic following his side's Euro 2016 qualifying defeat to Poland.

The world champions suffered a shock 2-0 loss in Warsaw on Saturday as their hopes of reaching the tournament suffered a setback.

However, after recently seeing key players such as Philipp Lahm and Per Mertesacker retire from the national side, Low is eager for his new-look squad to be given time.

"We shouldn't put too much strain on the players," he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport. "The team are self-critical and the atmosphere is good, just as it was before."

Germany return to qualifying action on Tuesday night when they entertain the Republic of Ireland.
