Germans thank Russian hospitality after World Cup exit

Germany’s World Cup exit How papers across the globe covered the news

Thanks to two late goals, South Korea stunned the Germans and won 2-0, knocking Germany out of the competition before the knockout stage.

Bild went back to the 2014 World Cup to react to Germany's shock exit in Russian Federation, while British media enjoyed the upset. We congratulate Sweden and Mexico on reaching playoffs, and South Korea on their victory.

"The situation is very hard to put into words", he told ZDF. "We believed until the end today".

Germany are unaccustomed to such failure, this is the first time they have been knocked out in the first round since 1938. Originally called out for offside, the goal was then given after video review.

He also revealed that Bayern Munich's Sebastian Rudy will not play in the decisive match against South Korea on Wednesday after breaking his nose in previous match. Son tapped the ball into an empty net after a long pass from Ju Se-jong.

Team manager Oliver Bierhoff said he assumed that Low, who led Germany to their triumph in Brazil four years ago, would remain in his position.

"The disappointment of being eliminated is just huge", Low added.

Toni Kroos avoided passing to one of his own team-mates during Germany's miserable World Cup campaign because he "did not trust him", according to reports. It happened to other nations before.

"We need changes, big changes".

Global relations between Mexico and South Korea have never been better and we have the World Cup to thank.

That was the problem, for Germany.

Elsewhere Leon Goretzka comes into the midfield whilst Sami Khedira is preferred to Ilkay Gundogan. But the strategy did not bring much success in the first half. The decision to not include more than 10 ten teams has often drawn flak from fans of the game.

Gomez had a decent header stopped by Jo in the 68th minute and could not properly connect with a low cross from Kimmich in the 72nd as Germany's hopes vanished.

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

That assistance will be crucial against a talented but inconsistent Mexican side that have gone from beating Germany 1-0 in their opener to losing 3-0 to Sweden in their final group game.
