German fans stunned by World Cup elimination

Germany’s World Cup exit How papers across the globe covered the news

Ecstatic Mexican football fans besieged the South Korean embassy in Mexico City and celebrated with diplomats after the Taeguk Warriors' stunning victory over Germany put El Tri into the World Cup last 16. However, they are a Nation with a longstanding history of churning out high-quality soccer players by the dozen, so it probably won't be that hard for them to look internally and find the right talent they need to success internationally.

The holders only needed a victory against South Korea in order to progress as Mexico were beaten 3-0 by Sweden in the other Group F finale, but missed a host of excellent chances en route to a shock 2-0 defeat to go crashing out of the competition.

"We worked as a team", he said.

Then with Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer up in the attacking half as Germany searched for a goal, a long ball from the Korean half allowed Son Heung-Min to run onto it and score an empty net goal to confirm Germany's elimination from the tournament and bottom finish in Group F. Upon first glance, you might think it's just a celebration, as Brazil fans march down the street, waving country flags and playing loud music.

If he goes, the 58-year-old's misguided loyalty in senior players like Muller, Hummels, Sami Khedira, Mesut Ozil, Toni Kroos and Jerome Boateng will have been a key factor in his downfall. Germany are reigning World Cup Champions, having claimed the title in 2014 in Brazil while beating Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals. "We will sit down and over today's match again". "I'm shocked. It is historic".

We need to know how to play with him and be able to work with him on the pitch, some of them can do it quickly and others not. They'll say I'm an excellent manager if we win, if we lose they'll say I'm very bad".

Former South Korea forward Ahn Jung-hwan, who scored the goal that knocked Italy out of the last 16 in 2002, said the result showed the unpredictability of the game.

The FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russian Federation.

A 93rd minute own goal by the unfortunate Yann Somer from a Bryan Ruiz penalty gave the central American side a deserved 2-2 draw on a night of late drama.

I watched some of the game and they were just unable to break South Korea down.
