Fans shell-shocked as Germany exit FIFA World Cup 2018

The world champions fell flat during their title defence in Russian Federation as s shock 2-0 loss to South Korea in their final Group F encounter saw Die Mannschaft finish rock bottom of the group.

Germany join 2010 champions Spain, who failed to progress past the group stage in Brazil in 2014, while 2006 winners, Italy, failed to get past the first round in South Africa.

"First of all I have to say that we qualified because we beat Germany and Korea", he told reporters in Yekaterinburg.

"After that, there were a lot of changes".

Mexico has not made it past the knockout Round of 16 for the past six World Cups.

They stole the celebratory limelight after the match with hundreds of Mexican fans mobbing the South Korean embassy in Mexico City chanting "Korean, brother, now you're Mexican!" "We need to draw the right conclusions". "And about that, we must talk".

Front pages of German newspapers ripped through their national team after their exit from the World Cup in Russian Federation.

That was the problem, for Germany.

James Harden finally wins first MVP
Harden's award will undoubtedly cause more debate to occur in the coming days due to James' similarly-incredible campaign. Harden is the third player in Rockets history to win the award, and he is the first since Hakeem Olajuwon won in 1994.

The Bayern centre-back is fit to start and he replaces team-mate Jerome Boateng, who is suspended.

There was to be no happy ending against South Korea as the same flaws showed up time and again.

Soon after, Son connected with a cross from Lee Yong, but his powerful strike from inside the box went wide.

The Germans continued at the same pedestrian pace after halftime and Ozil had another poor display, with many of his passes uncompleted. The decision to not include more than 10 ten teams has often drawn flak from fans of the game.

Hummels said the warning signs had been there after Germany lost their opening game 1-0 to Mexico.

Germany ended up last in a group it expected to win.

Few gave the Koreans any chance of reversing that defeat on Wednesday, with some bookmakers offering odds of 100-1 on a 2-0 win, but as coach Shin Tae-yong said ahead of the match: "The ball is round, anything can happen".

A victory would have put the Germans through to the last-16 stage but two injury-time goals sealed their fate as they exited at the group stage for the first time in 80 years.
