Germany, the reigning World Cup victor and a popular pick to win the tournament again this year, has been knocked out of the World Cup group stage, an utterly shocking development.

Mexican fans plunged into anguish on Wednesday by their team's drubbing by Sweden were left cheering for South Korea - exploding into celebration when the Asian side defeated Germany, putting Mexico into the World Cup knockout stage.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil reportedly had a verbal spat with angry Germany fans after Die Mannschaft's humiliating exit from the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

"It's a dark day for German football", Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer said.

That was the problem, for Germany. But the strategy did not bring much success in the first half. The Germany keeper bobbled the ball and needed to swipe the rebound away from the attackers after a spectacular dive. Lance, following the same play on numbers that Kroos used, posted "Happy 2018" and replaced the first two numbers with the South Korean and German flags. Low opted not to freshen up his side too much with an injection of youth and pace, and he instead kept faith with numerous players who had done the job four years previously.

The legend of the sport returned for the all-important last group outing against Eusebio's Portugal, but was the victim of another strong challenge and was forced to limp his way through the remainder as Brazil lost 3-1 to bow out.

This win for Korea sent the Germans crashing out of the tournament, which ultimately saved Mexico in the process.

Like Italy, Brazil came into the World Cup having won the previous two World Cups.

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. I'm incredibly disappointed by this elimination'.
