World cup newcomers to carry Germany past South Korea

World cup newcomers to carry Germany past South Korea

And it's a dream to play in the World Cup.

In Russia, the Germans got off to a awful start with a 1-0 loss to Mexico, and their campaign ended on an even more bitter note after a stoppage-time victor from Toni Kroos against Sweden gave the false impression they had finally kick-started their tournament.

Andersson was embroiled in angry scenes when members of the Germany bench opted to race along the touchline to celebrate Toni Kroos' 95th-minute victor - a goal that significantly altered the complexion of Group F. Today, for the first time we chose to play with four and not that structure.

Like the United States of America in 2002, Mexico owes a big thanks to South Korea for keeping it alive at the 2018 World Cup.

Germans shook their heads in disbelief Wednesday after their defending champion team was eliminated from the group stage of the World Cup in a 2-0 loss to South Korea.

The matchups: South Korea vs. Germany and Sweden vs. Mexico.

But there were other problems too, with no natural leader and their unusual inability to score despite bagful of chances: they ended the tournament with just two goals in three games.

"It is a really, really bitter evening for us", defender Mats Hummels added.

"Where we go from here, we'll have to talk about it calmly".

'We're all stunned - we're shocked, ' said Thomas Muller, the pillar of the 2014 team who seemed strangely unable to influence events this time.

Neymar Jr, the most expensive footballer in the world, and his Brazilian fellows are now working to fulfill the dreams of their nation to recover from a disastrous performance in the last World Cup, where the team lost to Germany 7-1 in the semi-finals.

A 93rd minute own goal by the unfortunate Yann Somer from a Bryan Ruiz penalty gave the central American side a deserved 2-2 draw on a night of late drama.

Ecstatic Mexican football fans besieged the South Korean embassy in Mexico City and celebrated with diplomats after the Taeguk Warriors' stunning victory over Germany put El Tri into the World Cup last 16.
