Loew's delicate task involves nothing less developing a competitive team able to return to the world's top nations.
"I have to explain my philosophy to my players, but it is not possible without playing football. This is a key issue that needs to be taken into consideration," Skocic said.
LJUBLJANA, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- Slovenia beat Moldova 1-0 at the Stadion Stozice on Sunday, securing their first win in this year's UEFA Nations League after drawing with Greece on Thursday.
"I'm satisfied with the performance of my players. I'm happy with our movement on the pitch as we played against a strong side. We knew that the Netherlands would keep the ball and that they would try a positional attack. However, they didn't create many chances. We made one mistake and we were punished for that. That's normal in international football," said Brzeczek.
Djokovic's exit means there will be a first-time Grand Slam champion in the men's draw, with Zverev among the contenders at Flushing Meadows.
"We have good bench players, which makes me be confident when facing the upcoming new season," the 54-year-old added.
"There's going to be a new Grand Slam champion. That's all I know right now. There's no past Grand Slam champions left in the draw," Zverev said.
The striker argued that a clause in his contract, which is due to expire in June 2021, allowed him to leave on a free transfer at the end of the 2019/20 season and that he wanted to take up the option.
"This is my duty to know my team's weaknesses since I don't want to waste my time," the Croat added.
Villalobos added: "There are 21 days left, but in a pandemic many things can happen. The agreement is there, but if the conditions are not met in both countries, the match could be suspended. We already have a hotel but we still don't know about the flight. There are no direct flights but there is one via Houston."
"I just started playing maybe a little bit more aggressive because if I would have played the way I played, that's not the level for a quarterfinal match of a Grand Slam," Zverev said. "I had to start playing better and I was a little bit more consistent then as well. My serve got better and I said to myself, 'I'm down 6-1, 4-2, I have nothing to lose.'"
