Germany coach Joachim Loew always seems to make the right choice, whether he goes with a profound analysis from his scouts, his gut feeling or a combination of both.

Every one of Loew's choices so far at the European Championship has been right on target.

He started the tournament with Mario Gomez as his lone striker. Gomez scored three goals in the first two games.

When he changed his entire forward line for the quarterfinal against Greece, two of the newcomers scored in a 4-2 win.
