Germany knocked out of 2018 World Cup

Like Neuer, Thomas Muller broke through the ranks in Germany's national team at World Cup 2010, although the Bayern Munich forward was benched for the crunch clash with South Korea, and the 28-year-old admitted the squad were embarrassed by their displays.

We didn't deserve to be winning the World Cup once again, we didn't deserve to move into the Round of 16, " said German coach Joachim Low after the Korea defeat. "It's so frustrating and mind-boggling that we didn't play like this against Sweden and Mexico". The disappointment of us being eliminated is just huge.

Germany limped to a goalless conclusion of the first half but with Mexico vs. Sweden also a stalemate, it did not matter as Low's men were through by virtue of their head-to-head record against the Swedes - a 2-1 win last Saturday courtesy of Toni Kroos' 95th minute victor. Germany's ill-fated tournament in Russian Federation came to an end after suffering a humiliating 2-0 loss against Korea Republic in the final Group F match.

Mats Hummels said defending champions Germany's group stage exit from the World Cup finals for the first time since 1938 was a "bitter" shock for the team.

Then, in the 91st minute, South Korea struck, putting the ball in the back of the net amid the chaos of a corner kick.

Numerous players have come under fire for their displays and Mesut Ozil's dejected manner at the final whistle wasn't enough to spare him a barrage of criticism.

Everyone was waiting for Germany to score another late World Cup-saving goal.




With Sweden and Mexico at nil-nil in the afternoon's other Group F fixture, the Germans may have felt comfortable with their goalless scoreline at half-time, knowing that their head-to-head record against the Swedes gave them the edge in the race for the last 16. "We were eliminated not because we didn't want to win but we never had the chance to take a lead at any point - we were always lagging behind, trying to keep up".

Sweden won the group after thrashing the Mexicans 3-0.

The two goals scored by Germany are now the fewest they have scored in a single World Cup campaign.

It was a surreal scene that continued that played out amongst Mexico fans the world over, as El Tri supporters immediately adopted South Korea as their second favorite team on the planet.

South Korea had appeared finishing from an offensive perspective but twice in six minutes of added-on time, Shin Tae-yong 's side twice found a way through to condemn Germany to one of the darkest days in their history.

For Mexico, the lacklustre performance in Yekaterinburg marked a reality check as they head to the second round.
