Germany Coach Low: How We Planned Comeback Win Vs Sweden

Defending world champions Germany have crashed out of the 2018 World Cup at the group stages after losing 2-0 to Korea Republic in their final Group F game.

Germany suffered the first of several scares after South Korea won a free kick on the quarter hour when Sami Khedira's boot connected with the head of Jung Wooyoung. "The situation is very hard to put into words". I thought we could use that as a strategy to beat them and it hit the nail on the head. We proved we have good morale in the squad and Sweden actually only had two chances.

The changes didn't produce the desired effect early on, with Germany's attack once again slow and disjointed, struggling to break down a South Korean back line that had looked fragile in their last game against Mexico, a 2-0 loss.

South Korea had shocked the world by progressing all the way to the last four at their home tournament, beating Italy and Spain along the way.

Former Germany star Mario Basler slammed the national team's sub-par performance. The entire German football lost, the team lost.

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has said that the tarmac run-off areas make finding reference points at the track challenging. Apart from the colourful lines it is hard to tell where the hell you are most of the time which is the part that I dislike.

South Korea players reflect after their win.

The goal was initially wiped out on an offside call, but a review by the video assistant referees (VARs) overturned the decision on the field, giving South Korea a 1-0 lead over shell-shocked Germany.

"At the moment it is hard to say (why we have been eliminated)". "For us, this is a huge disappointment". It happened to other nations before.

"We need to congratulate our opponents", Loew said.

After a dramatic late win over Sweden, Die Mannschaft's World Cup hopes were still alive heading into today's clash but they needed to beat Korea to advance to the knockout stages.

That was the problem, for Germany. Suele made his first World Cup appearance as a replacement for Jerome Boateng.

The goal was awarded because Toni Kroos' touch had played him onside, and minutes later Germany were 2-0 down after Neuer ran up the pitch in a desperate attempt to get a goal. But the strategy did not bring much success in the first half.

The Germans came out firing in the second half, although Leon Gortezka and Timo Werner failed to convert their respective opportunities in the box. The Germany keeper bobbled the ball and needed to swipe the rebound away from the attackers after a spectacular dive.
