Someone else joked: ‘Low tasting defeat’, while one other fan said: ‘What is it with #JoachimLow and sticking his fingers where they shouldn’t be and sniffing and tasting.’

And finally, one fan amusingly wrote: ‘Joachim Low and eating boogers. Name a better duo.’ 

The Germany manager has been caught getting up to some unhygienic habits on the touchline before.

During Euro 2016 against Ukraine, TV cameras caught Low reaching down his trousers before sniffing his fingers.

Low has also repulsed fans by picking his nose and eating his bogies previously, once doing exactly this before shaking hands with Cristiano Ronaldo at the 2014 World Cup.
