South Korea Shocks Germany 2-0, Sending World Cup Champs Packing

Supporters of the German national football team react as they attend a public viewing event at the Fanmeile in Berlin to watch the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group F football match between South Korea and Germany on June 27, 2018. We did very well.

"Of course it's disappointing because we lost in the group but I think I can be proud after this win and we can be proud of this win".

Grateful Mexicans gathered at the embassy after South Korea's win secured Mexico's place in the round of 16 in Russian Federation.

Following South Korea's disappointing group-stage elimination from the Brazil World Cup four years ago, angry fans waited at the airport to pelt the players with candy upon their return home.

Germany is out of the World Cup, the fourth defending champion in the last five tournaments to be eliminated during the group stages.

All of that has turned up the heat on the Lakers to trade for Leonard, who has made it no secret he wants out of San Antonio . The hope in L.A.is that LeBron James and Paul George - the two biggest free agents on the market - will fill them.

With Germany's loss, Sweden and Mexico advance from Group F. Sweden beat Mexico 3-0 in their match, which was played concurrently with the South Korean shocker. The 2-0 correct score was matched at a huge [240.0] on the Exchange, with South Korea trading at a high of [25.0] in the match odds market.

The dense apartment complexes that shape capital Seoul shook with roars an hour after midnight on Thursday as South Korea scored two stoppage time goals to stun Germany 2-0 in what became both teams' final match in Russian Federation.

The Germans threw numbers forward in search of an equaliser in the closing stages but Korea managed to snatch the opener in the third minute of stoppage time, with Kim Young-Gwon's strike initially being ruled out for off-side, before the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) overturned the decision. Germany had shut out four teams from Asia since then in World Cup meetings.

Wednesday was day 14 of the 2018 World Cup and will never be forgotten.

Asked whether he will continue in the role he has held for the last 12 years, Loew, 58, told a press conference: "That's hard to say".

The first two games had brought narrow but disappointing defeats against Sweden and Mexico and criticism had been growing back in Seoul.

Ozil has been heavily criticised throughout the tournament and was dropped for the 2-1 win over Sweden last week. But South Korea refused to break, as the two sides played to a scoreless standstill for 90 minutes.

For South Korea, Jung Wooyoung started in place of injured captain Ki Sungyueng in central midfield, while coach Shin Taeyong retained the 4-4-2 formation.
