Loew, who won the 2017 Fifa Confederations Cup in Russian Federation with a second-string German side, said Germany has many talented players who will come through the system to help the deposed world champions return stronger. "It's so frustrating and mind-boggling that we didn't play like this against Sweden and Mexico". We just did not deserve it.

They finished fourth in Group F, behind Sweden, Mexico and South Korea. It was assumed that Germany would beat South Korea, and that Mexico would beat Sweden, but football is a amusing old game.

Germany's exit brought the third consecutive World Cup in which the defending champions have gone out at the group stages, with Spain and Italy facing the same fate in 2014 and 2010 respectively.

Germany was becoming desperate but Cho was vast in the goal yet all expected the world champ to do what it always does: get a goal when needed. South Korea knocked out defending champ Germany in a 2-0 match on Wednesday.

Germany have been eliminated in the first round of the World Cup for the first time in 80 years, since a defeat in 1938 at the hands of Switzerland, where they drew the first match 1-1, before being beaten 4-2 in the replay. "I am convinced that Joegi will continue", Bierhoff said after the 2-0 defeat to South Korea in Kazan.

Their prayers were answered when late goals from Kim Young-gwon and Son Heung-min secured a stunning win for South Korea, and ensured Mexico and Sweden progressed to the knockout stage at the expense of the Germans.

Ozil was heavily criticised for his performances at the World Cup.

Both South Korea and Germany entered the match with a few changes made to their starting lineup after losing a couple of key players to injury or suspension in the previous two Group F matches.

"We see in this World Cup that it is easy for any team [to be eliminated], except for Belgium and England".

And then everything went insane in added time at the end.

The scene in Kazan is set - a must-win match for a team of established stars, World Cup veterans and reigning champions against a "minnow" side with no hope of advancing to the Last 16.

Loew, who guided Germany to the title at the 2014 World Cup after a routing host Brazil 7-1 in the semifinals, said it was too early to talk about his future with the national team.

That win not only kept Germany alive, it put them in the driver's seat to qualify for the round of 16.

"I have to say that we qualified because we beat Germany and Korea, but nevertheless I am very hurt", coach Juan Carlos Osorio said.
