Mexican fans celebrate with South Koreans

Mexican fans celebrate with South Koreans

That's why the World Cup is the greatest show on earth.

In the other game in the group, leaders Mexico keep an unchanged team from the side that defeated South Korea in the second match.

Frustrated Germans, including their goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, moved forward to score a goal.

Many fans joked that while Ronaldo might be carrying the Portugal team and Messi the Argentine side, the only thing carrying the German team now is a Lufthansa plane home.

"He's one of the best players in the world, and I am more than convinced we'll see him in this tournament again".

He added: "We want to accomplish the impossible".

In each of the last three finals - and in four of the last five - the holders failed to make it out of the group stages.

While they saw a reversal of fortunes with Toni Kroos' late victor against Sweden, they failed against South Korea despite having 78 percent of possession and 28 shots.




"All I can say is thank you to our fans who always support us. We need to draw the right conclusions".

Convincingly beaten 3-0 in its match against Sweden, Mexico were set to be the next team sent packing from the World Cup on Wednesday.

The last time Germany was eliminated from the First Round at the World Cup was in 1938.

They knew they were going home after just two matches of a disastrous trophy defence, as a 5-1 humbling at the hands of the Netherlands was followed by a 2-0 defeat against Chile at the Maracana.

So, by all means soak up the schadenfreude, but don't expect it to last for too long.

Another loss for South Korea after this match was the injury of captain Ki Sung-yueng, who has been controlling the team's midfield.

As it was, the Mexico fans packed into Yekaterinburg Arena raucously celebrated both South Korean goals and beer rained down when news filtered through that Germany, incredibly, were exiting the tournament. "I'm incredibly disappointed by this elimination but I will think about it calmly".
