Shock Germany win 'shook South Korea upside down'

Shock Germany win 'shook South Korea upside down'

South Korea kept Germany from advancing to the group of 16 with a pair of unbelievable goals in stoppage time. "But we won't get carried away with that bit of success, and we'll continue to work hard". "Knowing that we'd just played our last match, I got some tears in my eyes later".

"We beat the world champions from the last World Cup and now I'm looking forward to the next World Cup". Sweden beat Mexico 3-0 and would have advanced anyway, but Mexico would have been eliminated had Germany won.

After a shaky start to the World Cup with a 1-0 loss to Mexico and a last minute 2-1 win over Sweden, the 2014 champions required just a win over the virtually-eliminated South Korea to progress to the round of 16.

Germany limped to a goalless conclusion of the first half but with Mexico vs. Sweden also a stalemate, it did not matter as Low's men were through by virtue of their head-to-head record against the Swedes - a 2-1 win last Saturday courtesy of Toni Kroos' 95th minute victor.

It was the third encounter of Germany and South Korea at a World Cup tournament, with Germany victorious in both of the previous two meetings. We've done very well and we're happy and we deserved to win. German World Cup runner-up, Didi Hamann, said that the German's exit was as a result of "indiscipline".

"Even if it had worked out today it would have been over for us in the knock-out phase in the next game or the game after".

However, the South American nation was set to progress as group runners owing to better superior goal difference over Japan . Rashford had by a distance England's best chance 25 minutes from time, but again slotted wide with just Courtois to beat.

If you look at where they usually draft it's in the teens to 20. "You don't always see it in professional sports", Rowley said. The Big 12 fell far short of matching its seven NCAA berths with only three first-round picks.

For South Korea there was jubilation in collecting a first World Cup win over Germany in three attempts. The 2-0 correct score was matched at a huge [240.0] on the Exchange, with South Korea trading at a high of [25.0] in the match odds market. An early goal and Germany might have scored two or three.

The Koreans needed to record a victory over the Germans and see Mexico defeat Sweden to realize their slim hopes of advancing to the knockout phase.

That's when South Korea stepped up.

The normally rock solid Neuer spilled a free kick in the first half but his counterpart, Jo Hyeon-woo, didn't put a foot wrong.

The goal was initially ruled out for offside, but the decision was overturned following a video review.

"It is a really, really bitter evening for us", defender Mats Hummels told German broadcaster ZDF. However, neither team seriously threatened to score and the only unsafe chance was from a swerving Koo Jacheol free-kick that caused Manuel Neuer some difficulty, but the goalkeeper managed to block it and then flick the ball away just in time before Son Heungmin could get to the rebound.
