Mexico fans laud South Korea for sealing team's place in last 16

0shares

The matchups: South Korea vs. Germany and Sweden vs. Mexico. Many favorites went through like Portugal, Spain, Brazil and France, but to say they did so easily would be a huge understatement.

That means the two games he featured in ended in losses, with Germany failing to score when he was on the pitch.

South Korea beating Germany saved Mexico's World Cup hopes.

I was as shocked as everyone else to see them exit yesterday, losing 2-0 to South Korea.

Videos posted on social media also showed ambassador Kim Sang-il sharing a bottle of tequila with fans and jumping up and down as the crowd partied outside the embassy, chanting "Korean brother, now you're Mexican!" "There were three or four big chances we had in the game".

"We deserved to be eliminated", Germany coach Joachim Loew said. To football fans, the Germans going out in the first stage of a World Cup simply just does not happen. "We'll need to talk about how we'll do that", he added.

The Germans continued at the same pedestrian pace after halftime and Ozil had another poor display, with many of his passes uncompleted.

Mexico has reached the Round of 16 for the seventh straight World Cup, but this one will long be remembered.

Hummels, who played in his country's 1-0 opening loss to Mexico but missed the last-gasp victory over Sweden with a neck injury, was not prepared to accept all the blame for Germany's failure to beat the Koreans, though.

Failure to qualify for the World Cup knockout rounds would significantly dent Loew's reputation after 12 years as head coach but his job is understood to be safe after he signed a contract extension until 2022 last month. "But we sent the world number one packing", said a headline in Seoul's major Dong-A daily.

"We lost but we're in the next round", Alcocer said, "So, we're very happy".

Loew, who guided Germany to the title at the 2014 World Cup after a routing host Brazil 7-1 in the semifinals, said it was too early to talk about his future with the national team. "I'm incredibly disappointed by this elimination but I will think about it calmly".
