Champions Germany knocked out of World Cup

Guillermo Ochoa Mexico

Sweden and Mexico qualify from Group F on a day no one could have expected.

Chris Sutton, the former Chelsea striker, believes Low must be sacked by Germany after they exited a World Cup at the group stage for the first time.

However, it only served to help Korea Republic wrap up the win in the 6th minute of injury-time as the goalkeeper was dispossessed deep in the opposition half by Ju Se-jong, who pumped a long ball up forward for Son to race completely unopposed towards the unguarded goal and slot home. Originally called out for offside, the goal was then given after video review.

South Korea head coach Shin Tae-yong stuck to the 4-4-2 system for the second straight match but made a few lineup changes for the third straight match.

Nonetheless, the usually reliable Bayern Munich man completely got a header all wrong with three minutes remaining, and ended up sending the ball way off target with his shoulder from another sublime Ozil delivery.

Germany's Thomas Muller looks dejected after losing 2-0 to South Korea at the World Cup in Kazan, Russia. But the two friendly matches, against Austria and Saudi Arabia, were not good.

Victory will confirm Brazil as group winners, but coach Tite is warning that under-fire superstar Neymar can not be expected to win the World Cup on his own and is not yet at full fitness.

Lee Jae-sung and Moon Seon-min were the attacking midfielder, with Lee moving down from the forward position against Mexico last Saturday to his natural spot.

Shin Tae-Yong's team felt it more hard to keep up the tempo in the second half and involuntarily dropped deeper. Germany played keep-away in the early moments but failed to put much pressure on the defense. The match starts at 19:30 IST.

Sweden were unable to crack the Korean defense in their opener, instead scoring on a second half penalty.

The world number one team turned the screw after the break and goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo, who has been the team's best player in Russian Federation, pulled off an outstanding diving save to deny a header from the unmarked Leon Goretzka that looked destined for the back of the net.

Timo Werner found Marco Reus inside the Korean area.

Just after the hour mark, Toni Kroos fired a shot off a teammate after a fast break.

Germany's disastrous Euro 2000 campaign, in which they finished bottom of their group, led to an overhaul of their talent system, and while it might be a knee-jerk reaction to do so again this time round, an inquest must be held into why this talented squad could not rise to the occasion, but only splutter and choke on the biggest stage. We fell into each other's arms and were so elated. Our guide reveals everything you need to know to watch the Germany vs South Korea game on TV and online - and best of all, it's free! "We are going to clean up, catch up and we have every chance of qualifying on Wednesday for the knockout stage", he added.
