Germany's emotional state after their World Cup exit

Mesut Ozil

"We're not going to the last 16, but we did manage to beat the champions and the world number one team", he added.

Mexico fans know that South Korea was the true hero as their team squeaked into the 2018 FIFA World Cup's last 16 after the Koreans eliminated defending champion Germany, 2-0, on Wednesday, June 27.

Bild went back to the 2014 World Cup to react to Germany's shock exit in Russian Federation, while British media enjoyed the upset. Beyond The Game spoke to German football journalist Manuel Veth about the country's emotional state.

That was the problem, for Germany.

Germany's defender Mats Hummels and Germany's midfielder Mesut Ozil react to their defeat. Suele made his first World Cup appearance as a replacement for Jerome Boateng.

France arrived in Japan and South Korea with a wonderful side that had won the trophy at home in 1998 and then did the "double" by winning the European Championship in 2000. The Germany keeper bobbled the ball and needed to swipe the rebound away from the attackers after a spectacular dive. Many players in the Bundesliga can do that.

Gomez had a decent header stopped by goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo in the 68th minute and could not properly connect with a low cross from Joshua Kimmich in the 72nd as Germany's hopes vanished. We got what we deserved. The legend of the sport returned for the all-important last group outing against Eusebio's Portugal, but was the victim of another strong challenge and was forced to limp his way through the remainder as Brazil lost 3-1 to bow out.

South Korea ended the match with two goals during injury time, leaving some fans in tears of joy.

And as they landed at Frankfurt International Airport, coach Joachim Low and captain Manuel Neuer were left to face the music as the Germans came to terms with their worst World Cup performance in 80 years.

The Germans graciously congratulated their group rivals Mexico and Sweden on their progress, as well as South Korea on their famous victory.

The Frankfurter daily Allgemeine Zeitung said only Loew's departure could give Germany the "new start" it needed.

But the coach stressed that "with the elimination, with the deep disappointment that we have experienced, we now need to think about which are the correct measures to take".
