Germany crashed out of the World Cup on Wednesday after a stoppage-time VAR-assisted goal from Kim Young-gwon and a late second by Son Heung-min earned South Korea a famous 2-0 win.

With Mexico taking control of the group, Germany can still finish as the runner-up with good results in their last two matches.

World champions Germany failed to progress to the knockout stages at the 2018 World Cup after losing 2-0 to Korea Republic.

It is the first time since 1938 that Germany have been eliminated from the competition at the very first stage.

(Web Desk) - In a major upset in ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, defending champions Germany was knocked out of the tournament after suffering humiliating defeat from South Korea. South Korea and Germany came in third and fourth, respectively, with three points apiece.

The Germans' fate was sealed by two goals from Son Heung-min and Kim Young-gwon in added time.

South Korean celebrations went up another notch when Son sprinted to retrieve a long ball, and with Germany's captain and keeper Manuel Neuer having gone upfield to try to help his side score, the Tottenham forward fired a low shot into the net to wrap up the win and leave the Germans distraught. "We were really disappointed, that's why a lot of us cried".

Mexico Proves It's No Fluke at World Cup
Mexico will clinch their place in the next round if Germany fail to beat Sweden in the other Group F game later on Saturday. Vela put Mexico ahead in the 26 on a penalty kick after the handball in the box by a South Korea defender .


Loew had changed his line-up to mix youth with experience, calling back Hummels, Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil while also fielding Niklas Suele and new Bayern signing Leon Goretzka. That left the east Asians with room to exploit on the counter-attack, but they were unable to take advantage due to wayward final balls.

South Korea sent shockwaves through the world of football as they assisted Mexico and Sweden by showing Germany the door at the group stages.

The four-time winners came to Russian Federation as one of the favourites but became the fourth side this century to lose in the group stage after winning the previous tournament following a 2-0 defeat against unfancied South Korea. Although it's likely that Germany will have more possession, we will do our best.

Stay tuned, World Cup fans: There's more drama to come Wednesday, with two games scheduled.

Germany had made it to the quarterfinals at the past nine World Cups, and reached at least to the semifinals at every tournament since 2002.

It means Germany's hopes of becoming the first team to retain the World Cup since Brazil's victories in 1958 and 1962 ended in embarrassing fashion.
