South Korea's injury-time goals by Kim Young-Gwon and Son saw Germany plunge to bottom of Group F. Unfortunately, Germany's confused and blunt overall performances in Russian Federation warranted little more.

Thoughts on Germany's World Cup campaign?

The pattern of the first half was as expected, with Germany trying to set the tempo and the South Koreans looking to hit them on the break.

Loew struggled to explain it. I told them our opponents would need this win a lot more. They'd have to hope for a draw or a Mexico win from the Sweden-Mexico finale.

"I have to take responsibility, obviously", he said.

Raphael Honigstein is ESPN FC's German football expert and author of "Bring the Noise: The Jurgen Klopp Story".

"We needed to throw things forward and it opened things up in defence". "We have to apologise for that".

Despite goal difference being potentially decisive for Germany, the early chances continued to fall to Korea and Son screwed a shot wide from the edge of the penalty area before Marco Reus rattled one towards goal at the other end only to see it blocked.




All four teams in the group had a chance to advance in games that were being played simultaneously, but Sweden's 3-0 lead over Mexico put Germany in prime position to move on as well - if the Germans could score against the South Koreans. But Sweden made it all moot by beating Mexico 3-0 in Ekaterinburg.

Mats Hummels should have been their savour three minutes from time but his free header from inside the area bounced over.

Besides Germany this year, France in 2002, Italy in 2010 and Spain in 2014 were the previous defending champions to get eliminated in the group stage.

"Today it was not easy but, yes, no team could get through easily".

"Ki and Park are very important to us, not just strategically but also mentally, they help the other players", Shin added. His goal was originally ruled offsides, but was overturned after a second look from the Virtual Assistant Referee (VAR).

KOREA REPUBLIC: Cho Hyun-woo, Lee Yong, Yun Young-sun, Kim Young-gwon, Hong Chul, Jung Woo-young, Jang Hyun-soo, Lee Jae-sung, Koo Ja-cheol (Hwang Hee-chan 56'; Go Yo-han 79'), Moon Seon-min (Ju Se-jong 69'), Son Heung-min.

"We didn't deserve to be winning the title again, we didn't deserve to progress to round of 16, we deserve to be eliminated", he said. "Where we go from here - we will have to take some time and talk about it calmly".
