Champions out as Germany lose 239/1 thriller to South Korea

Germany Coach Low: How We Planned Comeback Win Vs Sweden

With Mexico taking control of the group, Germany can still finish as the runner-up with good results in their last two matches.

Germany's Thomas Muller looks dejected after losing 2-0 to South Korea at the World Cup in Kazan, Russia.

All hopes for Germany were lost after the team lost 0-2 to South Korea in The World Cup Fifa in Kazan, Russia. For South Korea, Jung Woo-young comes into the midfield for Ki Sung-yueng after the captain was ruled out of the match by a calf strain.

South Korea scored both of their goals during stoppage time, the first of which was initially disallowed for offside but that decision was overturned after a video review.

After winning it off Neuer, Se-Jong Joo punted it forward and Tottenham's Lee rolled it into an empty net.

They become the third consecutive world champion to lose out in the group stage after Italy in 2010 and Spain in 2014.

"We believed in it until the very end, we tried to shoot, but we just couldn't get the ball in".

Midfielders - Julian Brandt, Julian Draxler, Leon Goretzka, Ilkay Gundogan, Sami Khedira, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil, Marco Reus, Sebastian Rudy.

Jang's shift meant an opening on the backline, and Yun Young-sun made his World Cup debut as a center back next to Kim Young-gwon.

South Korea sent shockwaves through the world of football as they assisted Mexico and Sweden by showing Germany the door at the group stages.

Nonetheless, the usually reliable Bayern Munich man completely got a header all wrong with three minutes remaining, and ended up sending the ball way off target with his shoulder from another sublime Ozil delivery.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson spoke of his pride after his side topped the group with second-half goals from Ludwig Augustinsson, Andreas Granqvist and an own goal from Edson Alvarez. More than £430,000 was matched on the Germans at [1.17].

Failure to qualify for the World Cup knockout rounds would significantly dent Loew's reputation after 12 years as head coach but his job is understood to be safe after he signed a contract extension until 2022 last month. One has to wonder about all the pre-tournament work that was allegedly done on triangles and approach play.

"We needed to throw things forward and it opened things up in defence".
