While the Germans were clumsy in front of goal, Kim Young-gwon and Son Heung-min scored late while their teammates defended superbly with last-minute tackles and hard collective work.

The changes didn't produce the desired effect early on, with Germany's attack once again slow and disjointed, struggling to break down a South Korean back line that had looked fragile in their last game against Mexico, a 2-0 loss.

South Korea added one more as time expired, Son tapping in after Manuel Neuer had gone up the pitch as Germany searched for a goal.

The four-time champions lost to South Korea 2-0 on Wednesday, allowing a pair of injury-time goals while knowing a 1-0 victory would have been enough to advance because of the result in the other group match.

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.

Germany finished at the bottom of its group for the first time in World Cup history.




"For us it's a huge disappointment". I couldn't imagine that we would lose to South Korea. It is also the fourth time in the past five World Cups that the champ has failed to escape the group stage of the subsequent tournament.

It will be our last-ditch effort, but whether we go to the round of 16 or not we will do our utmost to win tomorrow's game.

"Even if it had worked out today it would have been over for us in the knock-out phase in the next game or the game after". Mexico, having beaten Germany and South Korea, will take on the victor of Group E in the next round.

In case you missed last night's developments at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, a lot happened. The official had to check with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) before confirming the goal, but it was good.

"First we need to congratulate our two opponents who made it out of the group", said Loew. South Korea went down 2-1, with the first Mexican goal coming on a penalty and the second one on a breakaway followed by a defensive lapse.

Germany's best chance before going behind had fallen to Mats Hummels late on, but the defender wasted it, paving the way for South Korea's late show.
