Germany knocked out of World Cup after South Korea loss

Germany's Toni Kroos celebrates his winner against Sweden

Instead, the Germans have become the fourth defending champions in the last five tournaments to be eliminated in the group stage following a 2-0 loss to South Korea on Wednesday.

"Since we won we can say it all went as planned", he added.

"It was only after the match that we found out the other score, of course we were disappointed and that's why some of us cried".

Joachim Loew is safe in his role as Germany coach even if the defending champions exit the World Cup early, the boss of the German FA said ahead of Wednesday's crunch clash against South Korea.

After a scoreless first half in both games, Sweden took control in the second half, building up a 3-0 lead over Mexico, leaving fans looking nervous that their World Cup hopes were about to come crashing down around them.

With Sweden comfortably beating Mexico in the other game, Joachim Low's side knew that they needed to score to stay in the competition.

But in Kazan, 41,835 flabbergasted fans witnessed the fall of a titanic team that had made the semi-finals or beyond of every World Cup since 2002.

They cheered wildy when Kim Young-gwon turned in a shot home from six meters.

The goal was ruled out offside on field but confirmed by use of the Video Assistant Referee.

The 29-year-old criticised Germany's tactics after going down to Mexico and, although he has since seen improvements, he was frustrated by a loss of composure up front against South Korea.

Before this tournament, a Germany side had never been knocked out at the group stage since 1938, so it must have come as a shock to many.

South Korea's Son Heung-min celebrates scoring their second goal against Germany at the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Kazan June 27, 2018. If Mats Hummels is unable to play because of a neck injury, Germany will likely start Antonio Rudiger and Niklas Sule at center-back. We will analyse what went wrong and carry on working as we always did.

"We were playing for the Korean people", said Cho, a cult figure at home for his ostentatious, orange bouffant.

Similar scenes were repeated across the country, as Mexico's World Cup dream was kept alive. El Tri was on the brink of elimination if Germany had beaten South Korea.

"We didn't deserve to win the title again and we didn't deserve to progress to the round of 16".
