South Koreans in Mexico given hero's treatment

Swede Durmaz subjected to race hate storm after Germany loss

Germany went 1-0-2 in the Tournament with their only win coming against Sweden when Toni Kroos scroed the game victor deep into added time.

It's been a World Cup to forget for Mesut Ozil.

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

The FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russian Federation.

The internet turned cruel for Germany fans on Thursday as online mockery swept the globe following the defending champions' shock World Cup elimination. I can't imagine a situation where I stand in front of the group of players I have got and start talking to them about anything else.

They are now joint-fourth favourites with France, behind only Brazil, Spain and group opponents Belgium. Germany, whom many had pegged a pre-tournament favourites, had looked very shaky in all of their games and most certainly did not look like the power house side we are used to seeing.

Fellow supporter Denis, who traveled nearly 3,000km (1,864 miles) from his home in Stuttgart to watch Germany take on South Korea in Kazan, was equally resigned.

Low was a prisoner of his own success as he kept faith in a set of players who have done the job for him over the years. Who knows, with a performance like that, somebody might come knocking.

"In the end we did not do enough", the midfielder said.

Korea, grouped with Germany, Mexico and Sweden, failed to move on to the next stage despite its dramatic victory over Germany, due to its earlier losses to Sweden and Mexico. Germany, one of the pre-tournament favorites, was out.

The Germans had a number of chances but could not convert them to goals.

Although Germany rebounded spectacularly with a superb win over Sweden after the Mexico defeat, Low's tinkering in selection for the South Korea match betrayed his lack of confidence in the whole team.
