Where it all went wrong for Germany at the World Cup

Joachim Loew is safe in his role as Germany coach even if the defending champions exit the World Cup early, the boss of the German FA said ahead of Wednesday's crunch clash against South Korea.

A Korean man is hoisted into the air by Mexican fans after South Korea's stunning World Cup win over Germany.

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!"

South Korea lost its opening two matches but still entered the game with a chance to advance.

Then yesterday, the four-time winners were defeated in the most dramatic turn of events against South Korea, conceding two in stoppage time and rather embarrassingly finishing bottom of Group F on goal difference. But, nothing went right for "Les Bleus" as they went home without scoring a goal, let alone win a game.

Never before have they failed to qualify from the group stage.

"I hope we can build on that, manage to improve and do better in the future".

"Of course we are extremely disappointed in ourselves and the result and the World Cup we played". "As coach, I bear the responsibility and must of course ask myself why we didn't succeed".

Amid a string of tweets from the official German FA account after the shock defeat, they took the time to thank Russian Federation for the hospitality displayed to Die Mannschaft. But we have young players who are talented and have the potential to go forward.

According to the Daily Mirror, fans close to the tunnel area vented their frustration at the distraught German players, with Ozil eventually exchanging words with some of them.

Not once did he try to open up the space in central midfield or try to open up the opposition defence with a simple run or dribble. "We are very grateful", said Pablo Gonzalez, 45.
