Germany World Cup exit Man Utd Liverpool transfers

France came to the World Cup in Japan and South Korea with a wonderful side that had won the trophy on home soil in 1998 and then won the European Championship in 2000.

While this overloaded side of the bracket may seem a bit unfair to contenders looking to take home the World Cup, it will undoubtedly make for some unbelievable football.

He had hoped to move beyond the more typical surroundings of the stadium, hotel and airport to take in more of what the city has to offer during the World Cup - although the sheer volume of fans has forced him to reassess his plans.

Low's future has been called into question despite signing a new deal before the start of the World Cup.

The 58-year-old will have to answer why the youngster was surplus to requirement for his party to the World Cup.

Around 500 fans gave the players a largely warm welcome as they arrived just 48 hours after stunning the world by eliminating Germany with a 2-0 victory in Kazan.

Spain and Russian Federation played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in a friendly last November, while their last competitive meeting came at the Euro 2008 semi-finals, where the Spaniards ran out 3-0 winners.

Amid opt out, Paul George has grown ‘comfortable’ in OKC
It was reported that last summer George told the Pacers that he planned to leave the franchise, preferring to join to Lakers . There was a report that recently came out where LeBron James' camp believes Paul George will remain in OKC for the future.

The team's disappointment and shock at crashing out of the competition in the group stages was summed up on the front of the country's national newspaper Bild.

Anyway, you'd think that their courageous performance would get them some love from their native fans back home, but once they arrived back at the airport in South Korea they were pelted with eggs and (bizarrely enough) Union Jack cushions at a photocall. Sweden topped the group, and Italy went home.

A harsh defeat to Germany aside, Sweden have been quietly impressive at the tournament so far, beating Mexico 3-0 in their final group game.

Top stat: Sweden's game against South Korea saw the most fouls (43) of any game at Russian Federation 2018 so far.

Kane has the more hard task of facing Colombia, so Lukaku is likely to have caught his Golden Boot rival by the time the quarter-finals come around, should they both progress.

Bild headlines from Germany's 7-1 win over Brazil in 2014 and its 2-0 loss to South Korea in 2018. "They've been ahead for about a minute and a half, in total, of their three matches and it's unusual to see them struggle as much as they have".

Key battle: Yerry Mina's two goals have been vital for Colombia, but the Barcelona defender will have to be on his toes to keep out Kane, who should be fresh after sitting out the Belgium defeat.
