  • Germany’s stunning failure celebrated widely in Russia

Mexico fans celebrate at the end of the World Cup group F match between Germany and South Korea, at a public event at the Zocalo Square in Mexico City, on June 27, 2018.

Low refutes suggestions German football is about to enter a dark phase, insisting "there are enough young players, who are very talented and ready to develop". We got what we deserved.

The four-time champions landed at Frankfurt airport shortly after 3pm (1300 GMT), a day after their humiliating 2-0 defeat against South Korea at Russia's Kazan Arena sent them packing in the first round.

Germany are the fourth defending champions to be eliminated from the Group Stage at the World Cup in the last five tournaments (also France 2002, Italy 2010, Spain 2014). This kind of blind rage fueled by your team having an bad match four years ago is what the World Cup is really all about.

Brazil comfortably reached the World Cup last 16 after Paulinho and Thiago Silva scored in each half to give them a 2-0 win over Serbia who were eliminated on Wednesday. Granqvist of Sweden made it 2-0 by a spot-kick in the 62nd minute of the match. No one saw this coming before the start of the tournament; in fact Germans were tipped to win the World Cup for the second consecutive time.

Low said he took responsibility for the failure, yet just 12 months ago he could do no wrong. They were still in position to advance despite trailing Sweden, but they were waiting - some with tears in their eyes - for Germany to do the inevitable and ruin their chances of moving on. We are just as disappointed as you!

"This is football", said Ahn, who is working for Korean television at the World Cup.

It will be tough for Germany to re-group after this loss. "The disappointment is deep inside me". However, Die Mannschaft suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Mexico in their opening match to leave their group open for the taking.

The president of the German Football Association (DFB) expects there to be changes in the squad after the tournament in Russian Federation but insists Loew, 58, will oversee the grooming of the next generation.
