Germany’s stunning failure celebrated widely in Russian Federation

Swede Durmaz subjected to race hate storm after Germany loss

So, are Mexico and South Korea now the unlikeliest of best friends?

The good will was extended around the world, including in Madrid, as Mexico earned a last 16 date with Brazil. Most assumed that Germans would do what they always do and find a way to beat South Korea, but as is the case in most sport, absolutely nothing went as expected. "To be honest, if we can't score a goal in 90 minutes against South Korea then we don't deserve to go through".

Those who remained applauded sarcastically when South Korea's Son Heung-min scored a late second goal into an empty net.

Even in Yekaterinburg, almost 500 miles away, the Mexican fans expected Germany to score.

Senegal had six, and became the first team in the history of the World Cup to be eliminated via fair play.

The 29-year-old, who was an integral part of the team who won the last World Cup in Brazil, said he was at a loss to explain what had gone wrong with Germany's campaign.

Germany, who won the tournment with some breath-taking displays in 2014, kicked off their Russian Federation campaign by losing 1-0 to Mexico.

Gareth Southgate: I was lucky to get second chance to manage England
As it stands, if England win the group and overcome their second round opponents, they'd face Brazil or Mexico in the quarter-finals.

But few could have bet that Europe's most successful football team would be sent packing after only three matches in Russian Federation.

South Korea has a relatively young core, with key players in their early and mid-20s. "We'll need to talk about how we'll do that", he added. "It wasn't only Ozil, a number of other players didn't perform as they normally would".

"We said before the tournament that it is the world champions who lead and shape the team".

"It's just very frustrating and a big disappointment", Bierhoff said.

Mexico lost 3-0 and Switzerland drew 2-2 but Alvarez and Sommer can take heart _ Mexico, Switzerland and the host Russians are the only teams so far to make it out of their groups after scoring on themselves.

Die Mannschaft were not only the defending champions but they had won the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation last summer with a team of reserves, and had cruised through World Cup qualifying without dropping a point. I'm incredibly disappointed by this elimination'.
