Germany down and out

Defending Champions, Germany have crashed out of the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia after 2-0 shock defeat to South Korea on Wednesday.

Germany finished bottom on goal difference.

Sweden, who beat Mexico 3-0, have topped the group, with Mexico coming second.

The two South Korean’s goals were scored on added time.

South Korea are also packing their bags but they go home having knocked out the defending champions.

Kim Young-gwon scored South Korea’s first goal on 92 minutes. Toni Kroos got the last touch so Kim Young-gwon was onside when the ball landed to him six yards out and he smashed it into the roof of the net.

Son Heung-min made it 2-0 for South Korea.

Manuel Neuer is just outside the South Korean box, Ju Se-jong lumped the ball 80 yards down the pitch and Son Heung-min was able to tap the ball into an empty net.

Earlier, Kim Young-gwon had turned a shot home from six yards but the flag went up and it was disqualified.

Germany had struggled at the World Cup, losing 1-o to Mexico in their opening game and managed to beat Sweden 2-1 in the second game before being embarrassed and dumped out by South Korea.
