Holders Germany knocked out after 2-0 defeat

Mesut Ozil- Mesut Ozil was on the bench for Germany in their 2-1 win over Sweden

"The disappointment of us being eliminated is just huge", Loew conceded.

Despite winning the first two matches of the group stage, including an impressive upset over group favorites Germany, El Tri still needed a win or a draw against Sweden to secure its spot in the knockout round.

After a scoreless first half in both games, Sweden took control in the second half, building up a 3-0 lead over Mexico, leaving fans looking nervous that their World Cup hopes were about to come crashing down around them.

Wrote one, "Korea just got Mexico to the next round of the World Cup".

Kim Young-gwon broke the deadlock in added time when he found himself alone in front of goal after a corner and poked the ball home from close range. Originally called out for offside, the goal was given after video review.

The World Cup can throw up some weird and wonderful scenes, not least in Mexico City when locals hoisted the South Korean envoy onto their shoulders after his country's stunning win against Germany.

It is the first time in six tournaments in charge that the coach has failed to guide Germany to the semi-finals.

The 2006 winners, Italy, crashed out of the group stage in 2010, while that tournament's winners, Spain, did the same in 2014.

Ironically, Toni Kroos' sensational late strike against Sweden is the reason why Korea Republic still have a chance to advance but that may also be the reason why Germany finally produced their real form.

Son Heung-min made it 2-0 in the sixth minute of injury time after Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer came up the field to help his teammates outside the South Korea box.

"We were playing for the Korean people", said Cho, a cult figure at home for his orange bouffant. "Even after the 1-0 we still tried to turn things around", said Hummels to ZDF.

Germany suffered the first of several scares after South Korea won a free kick on the quarter hour when Sami Khedira's boot connected with the head of Jung Wooyoung.

Loew was appointed national team coach after the 2006 World Cup in Germany, when he was assistant to Juergen Klinsmann.

We've done very well and we're happy and we deserved to win.

And Neuer, who only returned from injury in time to captain Germany at this World Cup, insists Die Mannschaft can not dwell on past achievements.
