The blond striker, who was one of Germany's better players in a poor overall performance when beating Saudi Arabia 2-1 in their last warm-up match on Friday, is eagerly awaiting the upcoming World Cup.
"I'm full of expectation when I think about the time in Russia," he commented with just a few days to go before setting off for Russia next Tuesday.
Reus is Loew's secret weapon when it comes to doing the unexpected. But currently Reus is more than just an ideal winger or midfielder, he is in support to Loew trying to fight the presently gloomy mood surrounding the German team after a series of disappointing results in pre-World Cup friendlies.
Beating underdogs Saudi Arabia was the first victory after five disappointing games. Uncertainty and doubts make things difficult for Loew's team as it lacks balance and ideas. It will be up to Reus to help the team to improve.
With a broad smile all over his face, the Borussia Dortmund star speaks about his and the German team's ambitious goal to be the first team to defend the title since 1962 successfully.
"It's in our head (to defend World Cup title) all the time. Everybody is extremely concentrated as we know we will be the ones everyone wants to beat. But we feel great confidence," Reus emphasized.
The winger missed Mario Gotze's magnificent gesture when displaying Reus's shirt during the new world champions' post-match celebrations.
After fighting his way back through an eight-month injury break only a few weeks ago, his time has now come in 2018. Reus is hoping to be on the pitch when it counts most and not like in the past in front of the television.
Loew demands the greatest versatility of his performers. In front of a strong midfield and behind a one-man spearhead, the wingers will be expected to attack the penalty areas and goal to create space for left and right backs moving in from behind.
"He is extremely gifted and surprises every opponent. Watching him at training, you must admit he is what you call a rocket," Loew underlined. The German coach is hoping Reus is going to vitalize the so far uninspired title-holders squad.
The German coach said Reus is top class due to his instinct and his unique feeling for spaces and passes. "He can read a game and is extremely fast," Loew said calling Reus one of the key factors if Germany is to be successful in Russia.
Currently, the German team is far from the best shape.
The "man for unusual things" (Loew about Reus) says he is determined to "get the rocket started" in Russia.
After 56 years, it is time for world champions to successfully defend the title, the German striker said.
"We need to do better in Russia, but the team will improve as soon as the tournament is kicked off," Reus commented.
