Merkel says can not attend Germany’s world cup match

South Korea's Ki Sung-yueng receives medical treatment during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Group F match between South Korea and Mexico at Rostov Arena in Rostov-on Don

Germany needed to beat South Korea by two clear goals, or better Sweden's result against Mexico in the other Group F match being played at the same time, to guarantee they would go through to the last 16. Meanwhile, in their last Group-F match on Wednesday at the Yekaterinburg Arena in Russia, Sweden defeated Mexico by three goals to nil.

After a shock 1-0 loss to Mexico in its opener, Germany recovered with a last-grasp win over Sweden and now hopes to build on the momentum to secure a convincing win against South Korea. "I believe we can do it..." Lozano made his World Cup debut against Germany, scoring the winning goal, and assisted Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez's goal in the 2-1 win over Korea.

The first holders not to win a match in the next World Cup also failed to score a goal during a disastrous campaign in Japan and South Korea. Originally called out for offside, the goal was then given after video review.

In stoppage time, South Korea got goals from Kim Young-Gwon and Son Heung-Min to beat Germany, 2-0. Son tapped the ball into an empty net after a long pass from Ju Se-jong. France, Italy, Spain and now Germany - all have suffered from the similar faith and the one factor that was common with all these teams was complacency.

"We deserved to be eliminated", Germany coach Joachim Loew said.

"The disappointment of being eliminated is just huge", Low added.

The only problem is that the initial conversations between the two teams did not go well, the network previously reported. Teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers are both in the market for the services of James and George.

"I thought we could use that as a reverse strategy and that has really hit the nail on the head". It happened to other nations before.

Loew changed his line-up to mix youth with experience, calling back Hummels, Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil while also fielding Niklas Suele and new Bayern signing Leon Goretzka.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert took the stiff-upper-lip approach, tweeting after the loss "Not our World Cup - that is sad!"

That's when South Korea stepped up.

The Germans continued at the same pedestrian pace after halftime and Ozil had another poor display, with many of his passes uncompleted. They should have won their first two games, and the third game could have been a little bit easier for them. It did its part by beating Germany, but Sweden's 3-0 victory over Mexico allowed the Swedes to win the group ahead of the second-place Mexicans.
