Joachim Low has been assured by the German FA that his role as manager of the National side is safe - even if Algeria were to cause one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history.

Germany are overwhelming favourites to see off the African nation and advance to the Quarter-Finals, but the German Football Association have taken action to calm any nerves Low may be experiencing.

Wolfgang Niersbach, president of the German FA, told Stern magazine: "We still have the clear intention of carrying on with him."

"There are no clauses in his contract which state that it depends on certain results."

"'The way we have developed has been fantastic. Previously, we were getting recognition for our results while now we're getting a great degree of recognition for our style of play."

Prior to travelling to Brazil, the 54-year-old signed a two-year contract extension, taking him on to 2016.

Germany under Low

Under Low's guidance the German's advanced to the 2010 World Cup semi-final's and Euro 2008 final, losing both games 1-0 to the eventual Champions, Spain.

They also made it to the semi-final's of Euro 2012, losing 2-1 to Italy. 

The heads of German football will be expecting the same this time around. With a possible quarter-final tie against France or Nigeria, anything less will be deemed a failure. 

However Algeria have won both of the two previous meetings between the nations, famously defeating the West German's 2-1 in the group stage of the 1982 World Cup.

But victory this time around against one of the pre-tournament favourites would send shock waves around the world.
