Shambolic Germany sent packing after loss to South Korea

Joachim Low Germany World Cup

Joachim Low Germany World Cup

Suddenly, all eyes turned to the South Korea-Germany match being played simultaneously in Kazan.

Mexico are stuck playing group E winners and five-time world champions Brazil.

"We deserved to be eliminated", Germany coach Joachim Loew said.

"We believe there will be a transition that will take place after the World Cup, regardless of the outcome of the tournament, and no one is better equipped to handle that than Jogi Low".

It was the first time Germany has been knocked out in the first round since 1938, though the team was not allowed to enter the 1950 tournament. "For us, this is a huge disappointment".

It was assumed that Germany would beat South Korea, and that Mexico would beat Sweden, but football is a amusing old game. "He's the sort of player who, despite negativity, he looks forward, he keeps a positive attitude and he's very important for us".

"We knew ball possession would definitely be in favour of Germany but I told my players we would have chances".

"We had plenty of opportunities, we broke our necks trying out there today", he added. We have energetic legs on the pitch and we're sticking to the game plan. But Sweden after all made it through to the round of 16 with a dominant victory of 3-0 against Mexico at a match in Yekaterinburg which was held at the same.

FIFA has fined two German football federation officials for provoking Sweden's bench while celebrating victory in a World Cup game.

That is, unless winless South Korea somehow managed to avoid defeat by Germany and erase the possibility of a three-way tie for the group, which Mexico would have lost on goal difference.

Their own defence was exposed on the counter-attack, however, and it finally buckled in the third minute of stoppage time when a corner fell to an unmarked Kim who poked the ball home from close range.

"I'm so incredibly proud, nearly moved as the thought of how we performed on the pitch, so disciplined".

"He proved a year ago at the Confederations Cup that he can make young players into an impressive team who play outstanding football". A penalty kick goal by Carlos Vela following Jang Hyun-soo's handball in the box and Javier Hernandez's neat finish on a counter attack gave Mexicans 2-0 lead.
