Joachim Low to consider position after Germany's 'deserved' exit

Germany are reigning World Cup Champions, having claimed the title in 2014 in Brazil while beating Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals.

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

For the first time in their World Cup history, Germany were eliminated in the group stage.

If you're wondering why there are so many Brazil fans in Lebanon, it's because Brazil boasts one of the biggest population of Lebanese people outside of Lebanon, so it's no surprise that the Lebanese, who don't have a horse in the race, choose to support Brazil. Marcelo was quickly injured and we were able to change him. "And about that, we must talk".

Cricket Germany took a dig at the International Cricket Council's decision to allow only ten teams to participate at the cricket World Cup. Germany are without Jerome Boateng after his red card against Sweden, but fellow central defender Mats Hummels is fit again after a neck injury.

Elsewhere Leon Goretzka comes into the midfield whilst Sami Khedira is preferred to Ilkay Gundogan.

Germany made a nervous start, playing slower than it usually does to avoid being vulnerable on the break.

I watched some of the game and they were just unable to break South Korea down. The Germany keeper bobbled the ball and needed to swipe the rebound away from the attackers after a spectacular dive.

The Germans continued at the same pedestrian pace after halftime and Ozil had another poor display, with many of his passes uncompleted. The thinking was that Julian Brandt fitted better into the national team system - but he played just 19 minutes over the three games.

Sweden were on course for the last 16 until Toni Kroos stepped up with a wonderful victor in the fifth minute of injury time to rescue the reigning champions 2-1 in a Saturday-night thriller.

Low said he was at a loss to explain what had gone wrong during the tournament but conceded there had been some arrogance in their approach to the opening match against Mexico, which they lost 1-0. At the same time, Brazilian media has also picked up a video assistant referee (war) after Germany's first goal after South Korea.
