SINSHEIM Joachim Loew will coach Germany a record-equalling 167th time in Sunday's friendly international against Peru.

Loew, in charge since 2006 after two years as Juergen Klinsmann's assistant, draws level with Sepp Herbeger who had 167 games in two terms 1936-1942 and 1950-1964, winning the 1954 World Cup.

Loew is the 2014 World cup winner and the only Germany coach with more than 100 victories, taking a tally of 108 wins, 30 draws and 27 defeats into the game in Sinsheim.

He remains in charge after Germany's World Cup group stage exit on a contract until 2022.

Germany drew 0-0 with world champions France on Thursday and Loew is now set to field his uncapped players Thilo Kehrer, Kai Havertz and Nico Schulz against Peru.

"It is very likely that one or two youngsters will get the opportunity to start that game," he said.

Defender Mats Hummels said "the most important thing is that we have stability," like against France, but that the second-ever meeting with Peru will be a different game.

"The expectations are that that we are far more dominant, create more chances and score," Hummels said.
