Germany World Cup exit has no bearing on England, says Gareth Southgate

Germany out World Cup exit England

The world champions fell flat during their title defence in Russian Federation as s shock 2-0 loss to South Korea in their final Group F encounter saw Die Mannschaft finish rock bottom of the group. Germany are reigning World Cup Champions, having claimed the title in 2014 in Brazil while beating Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals. I think we tried our best, it wasn't a lack of effort. Instead of Germany advancing out of Group F, it's Sweden and Mexico that advance.

This is the first time since 1938 that Germany has failed to qualify from the group stage of the World Cup, reports Sputnik news agency.

He said: "With the offensive play and set pieces we really could have scored at any point - maybe we should have scored in the first half on some of those occasions".

"Yesterday, we said that there was only a one per cent chance, so I told my players it was really a last-ditch effort for them and I told them that they had to fight until the very end".

The 58-year-old, who took over in 2006 and recently signed a contract extension through to 2022, said he was taking responsibility for the premature exit after losses to Mexico and South Korea in the group stage.

Even in Yekaterinburg, almost 500 miles away, the Mexican fans expected Germany to score. In stoppage time, South Korea got goals from Kim Young-Gwon and Son Heung-Min to beat Germany, 2-0.
