Eagle-eyed fans watching the Euro 2020 clash between France and Germany think that they might have spotted something of a blast from the past tonight as it seems as if German manager Joachim Löw has been up to his old tricks once again.
You know the ones we're talking about. Here's a video to illustrate it for you.
The camera cut away to Löw just at the exact moment that he was putting his hands up to his face and seeming to sniff his fingers.
That - to anyone who has been following international football for a while - will remind everyone of his antics at the 2016 European Championships, when he was captured shoving his hands down his pants and doing exactly the same thing
Of course, the camera this time didn't capture whether or not Löw had his hands down his kecks before raising his hand to his nose this time, but it certainly looked like it.
The fans watching at home have their minds made up, that's for sure.
Low loves a sniff of his fingers every minute of the game the freak

One person wrote: "Oh Dear Joachim Low has had his fingers downs his pants again hasn't he..."
Another said: "Joachim Low having a sniff at his fingers caught on camera again.
"That's the tournament officially started now."
Has Low just done another scratch and sniff there? Hahahaha

Whilst the Germans didn't have that great time in France five years ago, they did at least win the last game that Jogi was captured with his hands down his pants 2-0 against the Ukraine.
Perhaps this is a good omen for them then? After all, it's got a 100 percent winning record.
Unfortunately, it didn't quite pan out like that on the pitch for Jogi and his team, as they were beaten by tournament favourites France at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
Despite having periods of long pressure, die Mannschaft couldn't quite get their act together to score, and Mats Hummels' solitary own goal was the difference at the end.
France were vastly superior throughout most of the game, however. The Germans never really looked like winning.
You might even say, they weren't in with a sniff.
