Germany Fails To Advance Out Of Group Stage For First Time

Germany Fails To Advance Out Of Group Stage For First Time

South Korea take on Germany in Kazan on Wednesday afternoon, and it is still possible for both teams to make it to the last 16 of the World Cup.

Nervous Germany increased the pressure after the break and poured forward but despite dominating the second half, they could not find the back of the net before South Korea's last-gasp brace.

It has won four World Cup titles and also finished runners-up four times and entered this year's tournament heavily backed to retain the title.

Outside the stadium in Russian Federation, a group of Mexican fans found a Korean in a pink shirt, holding a Sweden flag.

In the day's other games, Brazil went through at the top of Group E after a 2-0 win over Serbia, while Switzerland will qualify alongside them by virtue of a 2-2 draw with Costa Rica.

That being said, their opening game defeat to Mexico still puts them in a risky position. If both sides finish level on points, they will be separated by Fair Play rules (red cards/yellow cards).

"I think first of all we need to congratulate our two opponents who have made it out of the group".

South Korea, led by head coach Shin Tae-yong, entered Russian Federation as certain underdogs in their group. Boateng is suspended after picking up a red card late on against Sweden.

Ultimately, Germany never recovered from that blow.

Quite the opposite, in fact: it shows Joachim Low in sunglasses, interrupting his morning jog in the Black Sea resort of Sochi to lean on a street lantern, posing for an agency photographer. Mats Hummels will probably not be around in Qatar, nor will Thomas Muller.

Defeat for Sweden against Mexico could have led to Shin's side progressing beyond Group F on goal difference. Therefore, Son Heung-min will definitely play a vital role in this clash along with the likes of Hwang Hee-Chan and Moon Seon-Min.

South Korea started the tournament with a 1-0 loss to Sweden at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod on June 18. He became unavailable for the next match against Germany with a left calf injury. "He needs two weeks of treatment".

The defending champions crashed out of the tournament after goals from Kim Young-Gwon and Son Heung-min.

From 30 yards out, it should have been fodder for World Cup-winning goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, but after fumbling Jung's dipping drive Neuer scrambled desperately to clear as Son raced to pounce.

Brazil forward Neymar can not shoulder the Selecao's World Cup hopes alone, the South Americans' head coach Tite said ahead of their Group E clash with Serbia in Moscow.

"We said before the World Cup that we have faith in him until 2022".

After the match was whistled over, German players looked to be in disbelief; many simply stood or sat on the turf and looked off into the distant horizon - one that which, astoundingly, no longer includes Die Mannschaft reaching the knockout round of the World Cup. There's so many questions that spring to mind now the world champions have been eliminated. In the past couple of matches, Reus has been a constant threat in attack with his pace and clever movements causing a lot of troubles for the opposition.

South Korean fans weren't the only ones rejoicing.
