German national team is the main disappointment of football year Date:
Instead, the Germans have become the fourth defending champions in the last five tournaments to be eliminated in the group stage following a loss to South Korea on Wednesday.
The four-time champions allowed a pair of injury-time goals while knowing a victory would have been enough to advance because of the result in the other group match.
Even when it wasI think we kept trying to turn it all around. South Korea was also eliminated despite the victory. It was the first time Germany has been knocked out in the first round sincethough the team was not allowed to enter the tournament.
Even in Yekaterinburg, nearly miles away, the Mexican fans expected Germany to score. They were still in position to advance despite trailing Sweden, but they were waiting — some with tears in their eyes — for Germany to do the inevitable and ruin their chances of moving on.
Kim Young-gwon scored the first goal in the third minute of injury time, a goal that sent the Koreans cheering in Kazan and the Mexicans delirious in Yekaterinburg.
Originally called out for offside, the goal was given after video review.
Son Heung-min made it in the sixth minute of stoppage time after Neuer came up the field to help his teammates outside the South Korea box. Son tapped the ball into an empty net after a long pass from Ju Se-jong.

The Germany keeper bobbled the ball and needed to swipe the rebound away from the attackers after a spectacular dive. The Germans continued at the same pedestrian pace after halftime and Ozil had another poor display, with many of his passes uncompleted.
Loew brought on substitutes Mario Gomez and Thomas Mueller on either side of the minute mark but his players kept giving the ball away, with most of their attacking combinations lacking precision and speed. But the team never really seemed to recover from its opening loss to Mexico. South Korea lost its opening two matches but still entered the game with a chance to advance.“The end of the world as we know it,” the Guardian called the game, hinting that the German national squad embodied an era and a mindset.
