  • A Nigeria soccer team fans reacts after Lionel Messi scores a goal against Nigeria during a live televised broadcast of the Russia 2018 World Cup Group D match between Argentina and Nigeria in Lagos Nigeria Tuesday

The World Cup holders were dumped out of the tournament following a 2-0 defeat to South Korea, leaving Mexico and Sweden to progress from Group F.

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.

The gratitude did not stop outside the stadium.

Kim Young-Gwon scores the opening goal for South Korea in a 2-0 win over Germany.

Instead, Germany were eliminated in the group stage of a World Cup for the first time.

Mexico, meanwhile, only played seven fouls and saw no one booked.

Germany, still with the nucleus of the successful 2014 team, arrived in Russian Federation expected to contend after doing little wrong between World Cups.

Belgium's Romelu Lukaku to recover from injury in time to face England
Japan are in the best position on paper as they sit top and face already-eliminated Poland. A hard pathPhoto Belgium has scored eight goals so far in this World Cup .

Having surprisingly lost 1-0 to Mexico in their opening match in Russian Federation and then required a 95th-minute strike from Toni Kroos to overcome Sweden 2-1, the Bayern Munich centre-back acknowledged they have not been at their best for a long time. The loss ended Germany's back-to-back title aspirations before they got any real traction.

"I think first of all we need to congratulate our two opponents who have made it out of the group", he said in his post-match press conference.

Although ruled out offside, the goal was confirmed with a review of the Video Assistant Referee, sparking mad celebrations from the Koreans and a gasp from the crowd.

Then came a classic against Slovakia, where, despite four goals being shared equally in the final 20 minutes, a brace from Robert Vittek helped his side to a 3-2 win that sent the World Cup winners packing.

Germany qualified for Russian Federation with a ideal record of 10 wins, but Hummels said the last time the team had played well was when they wrapped up qualification late a year ago.

With Germany out, Brazil coach Tite was confident his team could cope with being the new favourites.

Despite possessing the core of their World Cup winning side, including Zinedine Zidane, Didier Deschamps and Marcel Desailly, France wilted in South Korea and Japan. "I couldn't imagine we would lose to South Korea".
