Joachim Low seems to have no qualms about putting his hands down his trousers and giving his fingers a sniff.

After footage of Low having a scratch and sniff during Germany’s 2-0 win over Ukraine went viral, he’s been caught in the act again.

Does Low not realise that there are hundreds of cameras watching his every move? Either he doesn’t, or he does but simply doesn’t care.

This time, he was filmed performing the gross act during a Germany training session.

Why anyone in the Germany camp hasn’t had a word with Low yet is slightly worrying. For all the grace the national team plays with, you might expect the 56-year-old to be as equally elegant.

Clearly not.

Twitter reacts

We just feel sorry for all the opposing managers who will be required to shake Low’s hand during Euro 2016.

The original incident

Germany off to a good start

Germany got their campaign off to a winning start thanks to goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

It’s perhaps worrying for the rest of the competition that the reigning World Cup winners weren’t at their fluent best yet still managed to record a win.

Germany had to handle some pressure from Ukraine in the second half - while Jerome Boateng’s spectacular goal-line clearance prevented the score being 1-1 as half-time approached - but Low was pleased with the way his team coped as their Group C opponents began to create chances.

“It got a bit dangerous for us at times, but overall we dealt with everything quite well,” he reflected, per Germany’s official website.

“In the first half we had a couple of problems going forward, we lost the ball a few times and were susceptible to being hit on the break. The wingers improved as the game went on, and Mustafi and Boateng won a lot of challenges.”

Tricky tie against Poland

Next up for Die Mannschaft is Poland, who also won their opening game, on Thursday. Germany suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat to the Poles in qualifying and Low is predicting a difficult game.

“It will be a very decisive match. Poland have a strong team,” he said. “We played them twice in qualification and we lost in the away game.

“Their style of play is quite similar to Ukraine. That is definitely going to be a tough battle as well.”

Low has brought about an impressive era of success for Germany following their triumph in Brazil but a European Championship winners medal still eludes him.

But with a squad that has a perfect blend of experience and youthful energy, it’s hard not to imagine Germany reaching the final and preventing Spain from making it a hat-trick of titles.
