Defending champion Germany eliminated from World Cup

Germany out World Cup exit England

In 2002, the United States of America lost Poland, 3-1, on the final day of the group stage, but South Korea beat Portugal, 1-0, on a late goal from Park Ji-Sung, when a tie would have sent the Portuguese into the final 16 along with South Korea, the World Cup co-host. Over 14 years we got better and better, we were the most consistent team in the world for the last 10 years and we were world champions. "I think we've grown since our last match".

This is the first time since 1938 that Germany has failed to qualify from the group stage of the World Cup, reports Sputnik news agency.

One day before the decisive match, Loew said that he had not yet made up his mind about the starting lineup but with a couple of players injured or suspended, he had only 18 players to choose from.

Shin, who had given South Korea a one per cent chance of victory before the game, said: "I feel great, but at the same time, I feel a little bit empty, so I feel a little ambivalent".

After beating Germany, 1-0, and South Korea, 2-1, Mexico appeared to be cruising in Russian Federation, but it still faced the possibility of exiting if it lost to Sweden and Germany beat South Korea. But instead it was Sweden and Mexico who advanced after the Swedes romped to a 3-0 win over the Mexicans in Yekaterinburg.

Sweden 1 South Korea 0.
