Germany: We deserved to go out

Mesut Ozil- Mesut Ozil was on the bench for Germany in their 2-1 win over Sweden

But the Germans failed to fire on Russian soil, suffering a shock 1-0 loss to Mexico in their opener, scraping past Sweden with a stoppage-time victor, and then losing 2-0 to South Korea at the Kazan Arena on Wednesday.

It is the first time Germany have failed to qualify from the group stages at a World Cup since 1938 as the holders became the latest defending champions to crash out early. It was assumed that Germany would beat South Korea, and that Mexico would beat Sweden, but football is a amusing old game. South Korea's Son Heung-Min added another goal a few minutes later in one of the most shocking results in soccer history, officially eliminating defending champion Germany.

Germany's loss in Kazan meant that they finished bottom of Group F, while Mexico and Sweden progressed to the last-16 stage.

Germay lost their first game against Mexico but a stoppage time victor from Toni Kroos against Sweden had given them life in the competition.

Knocked out at the group stages, Germany joined a very unlucky club, a curse that continues for the third World Cup tournament in a row.

"The disappointment of being eliminated is just huge, but we need to congratulate Mexico and Sweden who have made it out of the group". I couldn't imagine that we would lose to South Korea.

The interview came out after a trip to the region by Mr Kushner and United States envoy Jason Greenblatt. Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, and two years later, Hamas seized control of Gaza from Abbas' forces.

The World Cup is held every four years.

Germany were caught out at the back as they threw men forward in search for a late victor, with Kim Young-Gwon flicking home inside the box two minutes into injury time.

"We didn't deserve to win the title again, we didn't deserve to get into the last 16". I am shocked. We have to talk about things calmly to work out what to do now.

"We decided in the DFB executive committee before the World Cup to offer a contract extension", DFB boss Reinhard Grindel told Frankfurt-based newspaper FAZ. Sweden and Germany both had three points, and South Korea had zero.

The goal was ruled out offside on field but confirmed by use of the Video Assistant Referee.

Germany's Mats Hummels heads the ball at the Korean net late in the match. South Korea went down 2-1, with the first Mexican goal coming on a penalty and the second one on a breakaway followed by a defensive lapse.
