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.
