Defending champions Germany crash out of World Cup at group stage

  • Joachim Low rubs his head during the 2-0 defeat to South Korea

Stoppage-time goals to Kim Young-gwon and Son Heung-min condemned Joachim Loew's side to finish bottom of their group.

With Sweden beating Mexico 3-0 in the other group game, the Koreans fell just short of reaching the last 16 for the first time since 2010.

It's claimed that the 29-year-old reacted badly to fans shouting abuse at the players as they headed towards the tunnel and had to be restrained by a coach.

We round up Wednesday's talking points from Russian Federation as Germany crash out, Mexico survive and South Korea celebrate.

Germany have exited the 2018 World Cup after suffering a huge upset defeat to South Korea, who were matched as high as 24/1 to beat the holders and 239/1 to win 2-0.

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. They had only won once in their last six friendlies leading up to Russian Federation, conceding in all but just one game during a 0-0 draw with England back in November.

With their three goals, Sweden finished atop the group and will play group E runners-up Switzerland.

Germany needed victory against the lightly regarded Koreans to give themselves a chance of progressing, but became the fourth champions in five World Cups to fall at the first hurdle during their title defence.

Hummels had a free header from six yards out but the ball ended up striking his shoulder and the chance was gone.

The world´s most expensive player, who battled back from a fractured metatarsal to be fit for Russian Federation, took plenty of flak despite scoring in the 2-0 victory over Costa Rica last Friday.

A lot of things we built up since 2006, always at least (a) semi-final.

Though the referee first ruled the goal offside, it was quickly changed thanks to the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system.

"We beat the world champions from the last World Cup and now I'm looking forward to the next World Cup".

Low also has the option of shifting Timo Werner out wide - the RB Leipzig man played much better in that position against Sweden - and bringing Mario Gomez as the central striker, which would mean Ozil starting on the bench for a second straight match.

Victory will confirm Brazil as group winners, but coach Tite is warning that under-fire superstar Neymar can not be expected to win the World Cup on his own and is not yet at full fitness. "We wanted to win but we didn't have what it takes".
