Defending FIFA World Cup Champ Germany Crashed Out From The Tournament

Champions Germany has got out of the race from the World Cup after experiencing a dramatic 0-2 beat by a resolute South Korea. The team got them eliminated in the opening round for the foremost instance in 80 Years. The German team would have stepped forward with a triumph at the Kazan Arena but hardly appeared competent of scoring in opposition to the Koreans.

Mats Hummels stated the group stage exit of the defending champions Germany from the World Cup finals for the foremost instance since 1938 was a “harsh” shock for them. Hummels, who squandered a late chance when he headed over, admitted, “It’s a really, really harsh evening for the team. The situation is extremely hard to put into words.”

He continued, “We didn’t plant the ball in the netting, although we had ample chances, counting myself in the 86th minute—I should score from opportunities like that. It’s an extremely heart-rending evening for the team as well as all German football fans. We hoped in it till the very conclusion, we attempted to shoot, however, we just could not push the ball in.

Germany retorted from behind in their game against Sweden, 2-1, and surprisingly lost against Mexico in their opening game, 1-0. Kim Young-Gwon of South Korea scored in the game’s 92nd minute. His goal was initially ruled offside but was turned over after a 2nd glance from the video assistant referee. After 4 Minutes, an open-net goal was scored by Son Heung-Min to place the final stake into the heart of Germany.

In another match, Brazil contentedly reached the last 16 of the World Cup after Thiago Silva and Paulinho scored in every half to offer them a 2-0 triumph over Serbia. The 5-times world champs secured Group E’s top with 7 points and in 2nd will be facing Mexico. Serbia concluded in 3rd position with 3 points.
