Germany head coach Joachim Loew is set to have his contract extended, reports the Hindu.

The German Football Federation have called a press conference this friday, and it expected to announce Loew's extension with the national team.

Germany have secured their place at next summer's World Cup in Brazil, and although Loew's contract expires during the summer, it looks likely the German will stay on when the tournament finishes.

The 53-year-old became head coach of Germany in 2006, following Jurgen Klinsman's resignation after the World Cup.

He guided his side to the European Championship final in 2008, where they lost 1-0 to Spain. At the 2010 South Africa World Cup, they once again lost 1-0 to Spain, but this time in the semi-finals.

And he lead Germany to the Euro 2012 semi-finals, but were beaten 2-1 by tournament runners-up Italy.

It will be Loew's 100th game in charge of Germany in November, when they take on Italy in Milan.
