South Korea vs Germany tips: Can the holders avoid elimination?

Sweden won the group with a 3-0 win over Mexico at the same time, which meant Germany needed to win their game in Kazan.

The Germans' fate was sealed by two goals from Son Heung-min and Kim Young-gwon in added time.

It is the fourth time in the last five World Cups that the defending champions have been eliminated in the group stage.

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

"At the moment. the disappointment of being eliminated is just huge".

In a stunning reverse by the footballing superpower who have reached either the final or semi-finals of every World Cup since 2002, the Germans stumbled to a 2-0 loss to South Korea that left them rooted to the bottom of Group F.

Germany lost the opening game 0-1 to Mexico, and dramatically beat Sweden 2-1 in stoppage time for the second game.

Brimming with optimism after their team upset Germany in their World Cup opener and then beat South Korea, the fans back home in Mexico watched in horror as Sweden scored goal after goal in their final group F match.

Argentina and Lionel Messi will play France, who were held to a goalless draw by Denmark on Tuesday, in Kazan on Saturday in their last 16 tie. The last victor is out, but really it is not surprising, given their performance in the first game, they struggled against Sweden.

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. "Only the World Cup could make this happen".

But that all changed 5 minutes into the second half as Sweden slotted home not once, but twice, meaning Germany were now in a must-win situation with 40 minutes left to find the back of the net.

In terms of raw costs to the German economy, calculations become more complex again.

"We did not deserve it, it has to be said very clearly".

The Tottenham forward also lashed a volley wide when it was goalless, before being booked in the second half as referee Mark Geiger thought he had dived in an attempt to win a penalty.

"I do have lots of Germans to thank for my times in Germany, but I wanted to win".

"We've done a fantastic job today with this match", Andersson said.
