  • Mesut Ozil- Mesut Ozil was on the bench for Germany in their 2-1 win over Sweden

South Korea's Kim Young-gwon celebrates scoring his sides first goal during the group F match between South Korea and Germany, at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia, Wednesday, June 27, 2018.

It is the first time Germany have failed to qualify from the group stages at a World Cup since 1938 as the holders became the latest defending champions to crash out early. It did its part by beating Germany, but Sweden's 3-0 victory over Mexico allowed the Swedes to win the group ahead of the second-place Mexicans.

South Korea's Kim Young-gwon scores their first goal against Germany in Kazan on Wednesday.

Germany qualified for Russian Federation with a ideal record of ten wins and as Mats Hummels admitted after defeat to South Korea, the last time the team played well together was late 2017.

Loew's side began their campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Mexico before rekindling their bid with a last-gasp 2-1 win over Sweden. The disappointment is deep inside me.

The World Cup is held every four years.

"There was nothing and therefore if we don't deserve it, we shouldn't make it to the next round", he said, adding that it was right for Sweden and Mexico to progress to the knockout stages.

The 23-time major champion didn't play professionally for over a year, causing her WTA ranking to drop to No 183. Williams made her comeback in March, after taking 14-months off to give birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia .

"We will have to have discussions tomorrow, we'll see how it goes". VAR confirmed there was nothing wrong with Kim's precise finish after the linesperson initially flagged for offside. "We lost but we're in the next round", Alcocer said, "So, we're very happy". Germany now needs to beat South Korea by at least two goals to be guaranteed a spot in the last 16.

Saudi Arabia took third place in Group A behind Uruguay and Russian Federation with one win and two losses, while Iran were No. 3 in Group B with one win, one draw and one loss behind Spain and Portugal.

From 30 yards out, it should have been fodder for World Cup-winning Neuer, but he fumbled Jung's dipping drive Neuer and scrambled desperately to clear. In Germany we had chances, but shot Goretzki handled by the goalkeeper, and Werner and Hummels from a killer position did not hit the target.

Low again shuffled his pack in Kazan, making five alterations to the team which just about scraped past Sweden, welcoming Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira, Mats Hummels, Niklas Sule and Leon Goretzka into the starting XI.

Son Heung-min made it 2-0 in the sixth minute of stoppage time after Neuer came up the field to help his teammates outside the South Korea box.

"South Korea has players who can execute fast breaks, we will try to adapt", Loew said.
