DURBAN, July 7 (Xinhua) -- Germany coach Loew spoke highly of Spain's attacking ability after his team's 1-0 semifinal loss on Wednesday.
"I am sure Spain will win the title," Loew said after the semifinal. "They're the best team. They will beat the Netherlands."
A second half header from Carles Puyol secured the victory, and although Loew lamented that his defense should have cleared the corner that led to the goal, he was magnanimous in defeat.
"I am sure the Spanish can win any game because they are dominant and it's hard to contain their attack," Loew said. "They have shown they can beat anyone."
"In the last two or three years, they've shown themselves to be one of the best and most united teams. They circulate the ball well and we weren't able to play the way we like to play," He said.
Loew said his team should not have allowed Puyol to head the winning goal from a corner.
"We should have intercepted that ball," the coach said.
