Korean players thought Germany win was enough to go through

  • Germany OUT of World Cup: BBC Sport pundit rips into Joachim Low’s men | Daily Star

Now sitting second in the Group F table, the World Champions need a win to book a ticket for the knockout rounds though they can still hope to qualify with a draw if Mexico beat Sweden.

Two goals in injury time from South Korea pair Kim Young-Gwon and Son Heung-Min meant that they finished rock bottom in Group F.

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.

But he was caught out as a long ball left Tottenham forward Son with the simple task of walking the ball into the net to spark jubilant celebrations among the Asian side, even though their elimination had already been confirmed. In order to go through, the Taegeuk Jeonsa not only need to win, but also need to beat Germany by at least two clear goals and hope Sweden lose to Mexico.

Low has had 12 success-filled years at the helm, but the manner of Germany's World Cup exit has been pathetic and there are a multitude of reasons for that. After being humbled by Mexico in their opening game, they managed to snatch a win against a very ordinary Sweden side with a last-gasp Toni Kroos free-kick.

Germany have now failed to qualify for the knockout stages, while Korea are also out.

Instead, they will head home after a scarcely believable failure, having also suffered a shock 1-0 loss to Mexico in their opener and only scraped past Sweden with a stoppage- time victor. Jerome Boateng, who was sent off against Sweden, will be replaced and many now anticipate that we will begin to see the Germany we have become accustomed to at major tournaments in this final group game.

The photo, taken before Germany's second Group F game against Sweden, was supposed to project calmness. A part of his aura was lost in Russian Federation, where his team never looked as good on the pitch as he did on that fateful morning jog.

Germany's Niklas Suele, left, is dejected as South Korea's Son Heung-min, right, celebrates after the group F match between South Korea and Germany, at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia, on June 27, 2018.

Head coach Shin Tae-yong on previous defeat to Mexico: "I think our players played a game that they will not regret".

Germany qualified for Russian Federation with a flawless record of 10 wins, but Hummels said the last time the team had played well was when they wrapped up qualification late past year.

Thus, we can expect Joachim Low to make several changes from the team that won against Sweden.

But it was Kim Young-gwon who broke the deadlock in added time when he found himself alone in front of goal after a corner and he poked the ball home from close range.

"Overall, we can't be satisfied because we're not in the knockout stage", Kim said.
