And even though South Korea won the match, they too were also eliminated from the world cup.

"The situation is very hard to put into words", he told German broadcaster ZDF.

About 500 miles (800 kilometres) to the east, in Yekaterinburg, Sweden thumped former group leaders Mexico 3-0, leaving Mexican fans anxiously focusing on events in Kazan. Mexico, having beaten Germany and South Korea, will take on the victor of Group E in the next round.

In the final minutes of tonight's game, Mats Hummels was presented with the ideal opportunity to give Germany an advantage in their final group game against South Korea.

The Mexican team's official beer sponsor also showed its gratitude to the South Koreans, sending their embassy in Washington several dozen crates of alcohol, along with the message: "Showing thanks to our South Korean friends as the official beer of the Mexican national football team".

For European World Cup winners it has been a sorry story next time out to say the least. Meanwhile, Sweden and Mexico advanced to last 16.

Then, Mexicans at the game - and around the world - cheered wildly when South Korea scored its first goal.

The World Cup is now in full swing, and FanDuel is offering daily fantasy contests every day, for the entirety of the tournament. Argentina made the World Cup final in 2014, eventually losing to Germany 1-0 after Mario Gotze's late victor .

Jang Hyun-soo, a much-maligned center back from the first two matches, took Ki's spot as a holding midfielder, alongside Jung Woo-young.

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.

"We are so proud of you", the newspaper said on its front page, adding the game "shook South Korea upside down".

The second goal was conceded when German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was dispossessed on the edge of the Korean box. "We were eliminated not because we didn't want to win but we never had the chance to take a lead at any point - we were always lagging behind, trying to keep up".

"We need to congratulate our opponents", Loew said. Suele made his first World Cup appearance as a replacement for Jerome Boateng. Joshua Kimmich sent a cross to an unmarked Leon Goretzka for a header from point-blank range, and Jo soared to his right at the last minute and punched the ball out of play.

Germany were stunned 1-0 in their opening World Cup 2018 game against Mexico and appeared to be heading out as they trailed Sweden in their next group game. Time was running out when Matt Hummels headed over when free in the area and again and again Korea fund itself in good counter positions but just could not create that chance.
