The balance wasn't right at all though.
Portugal self destructed in the first game and Germany were poor against Ghana, USA and Algeria but got away with it. It's only when Löw finally switched Lahm back to right back and brought Klose in up front ahead of the France game that the team started looking like genuine contenders.
He's doing the same thing again, playing players out of position this time. Hopefully he's grasped the fact it's not working a bit earlier this time round, today was a positive step.
