Korea avoid dishonorable records with win over Germany

Both teams could potentially qualify

Son has been in action for South Korea at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer, and helped his side pick up their only win of the competition with a 2-0 victory over Germany on Wednesday.

In a must-win match for the reigning champions, Germany could not live up to the expectations as a resilient South Korea team managed to oust the champions with a 2-0 win.

That result in Kazan, coupled with Sweden's 3-0 win over Mexico in the other group match in Ekaterinburg, meant the Swedes and Mexico progressed to the round of 16.

South Korea's Kim Young-gwon scores their first goal against Germany in Kazan on Wednesday.

Four of the last five winners of the previous tournament have now crashed out in the group stage the next time around.

KAZAN, Russia Everyone was waiting for Germany to score another late World Cup-saving goal.

"For us it's a huge disappointment". While that famous quote by Gary Lineker is not always accurate there is no doubt that when it comes to a World Cup, Germany are invariably amongst the top challengers. We are sorry for not playing like world champions, and as painful as it is, we deserve to be out.

Live updates of the final group F clash between Germany and South Korea. "We will see who feels the less pressure, the less emotional". I couldn't imagine that we would lose to South Korea.

Harry Kane dropped as England prepare to play B team against Belgium
Belgium fan Mark Moors, 50, from Brussels, said he agreed with his national team's manager and preferred a draw with England . Asked whether his priority is finishing first or second, he replied: "We think that we need to keep winning football matches".

Hummels should have scored after being picked out by Ozil with 87 minutes gone, but made a mess of his header and Kim took full advantage when, after Jang Hyun-soo had flicked on Son's corner, Kim pounced, although it took a VAR review for offside for goal to be confirmed after Kroos' touch saw the ball drop to his feet.

Son Heung-min made it 2-0 later in stoppage time. But the team never really seemed to recover from its opening 1-0 loss to Mexico.

"Germany are the defending champions and No. 1 in the Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking, so I thought about what mistakes Germany might make, because they probably felt they would be able to beat us - that's what everybody thought", South Korea manager Shin Tae-yong told reporters.

"Our team in this match was missing the ease of play and the classiness that we normally display", Löw said.

With no option other than a victory to advance, Low inserted Mario Gomez and Muller for Khedira and Goretzka.

Despite only recently returning from a fracture foot, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was too often called upon as Germany's last line of defence.

Loew, who recently signed a contract extension, said he would take time to consider his future.
