Shock Germany win 'shook South Korea upside down'

2018 World Cup Report: Korea Republic v Germany 27 June 2018

Defending world champions Germany have crashed out of the 2018 World Cup at the group stages after losing 2-0 to Korea Republic in their final Group F game. "I'm incredibly disappointed by this elimination".

Germany coach Joachim Low said his side deserved to go out of the World Cup after their shock exit following a 2-0 defeat to South Korea.

The results on the afternoon in question saw Mexico lose to Sweden 0-3 and South Korea surprising Germany 2-0.

But in Kazan, 41,835 flabbergasted fans witnessed the fall of a titanic team that had made the semi-finals or beyond of every World Cup since 2002.

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

We can (hopefully) still expect the mode to hit today, June 29, but the issues may roll into the weekend. You also get unlimited respawns until the last five minutes, when the storm starts to close in.

The offside flag was initially raised, but after some discussions between referee Mark Geiger and his team in Moscow, VAR replays showed the ball took a touch off Kroos on the way through, meaning Kim was onside and the goal was given. South Korea's win and Sweden turning over Mexico ended their dreams of retaining their title.

Germany's team of superstars could only look on in shock in the final minutes of the match as U.S. referee Mark Geiger called for the video assistant referee to intervene after the unmarked Kim had bundled his shot past Germany 'keeper Manuel Neuer from a corner early in stoppage time.

The loss capped off Germany's most disappointing campaign of recent times and continuing the mythical "curse of the World Cup champion".

The South Koreans themselves went home with just three points from their three games, but the famous win against the Germans - and the celebrations that followed - will live long in the memory.

In Germany we had chances, but shot Goretzki handled by the goalkeeper, and Werner and Hummels from a killer position did not hit the target.

Nervous Germany increased the pressure after the break and poured forward but despite a one-sided second half it could not find the back of the net before South Korea's last-gasp double.

South Korea had the first chance when Jung Woo-young's free-kick was fumbled by Neuer, who punched clear bravely as Son tried to convert the rebound.

The person filming the video, Patrick Infurna, says "Only the World Cup could do this".

Germany head coach Joachim Loew was left shell-shocked.

"We didn't make it to the round of 16. but we sent the world number one packing", said a headline in Seoul's major Dong-A daily.
