It is the fourth time in the last five World Cups that the defending champions have been eliminated in the group stage.

"It is hard to say (about the future)".

"Yesterday we said there was only a 1% chance and so I told my players it really was a last-ditch effort for them and I told them that they had to fight until the end".

Germany qualified for Russian Federation with a flawless record of 10 wins, but Hummels said the last time the team had played well was when they wrapped up qualification late previous year. Mexico edged through at Germany's expense, despite a 3-0 defeat to Sweden, who finished top.

Germany have exited the 2018 World Cup after suffering a huge upset defeat to South Korea, who were matched as high as 24/1 to beat the holders and 239/1 to win 2-0.

After watching their team play poorly against Sweden, the mood among Mexico fans at the game improved when news came in that South Korean goalkeeper Joe Hyeon-woo was preventing Germany from scoring.

"At this tournament, we didn't deserve to win again or move to the round of 16", Low added.

The decision to omit Manchester City's Leroy Sane, the Premier League's Best Young Player last season, from the World Cup squad spoke volumes when fresh impetus was badly needed in Russian Federation.

"Even if it had worked out today it would have been over for us in the knock-out phase in the next game or the game after".

Then six minutes into stoppage time, with Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in possession in the opponents' half, Ju Se-jong gained control of the ball, launched it forward and Son Heung-min tapped into an empty net to score the second.

She didn't pay attention to it, at first, but she started posting pictures of the bump of her social media channel just in case. Doctors determined that the wandering wart was actually a marauding parasite, likely transmitted by a mosquito bite on her trip.

South Korea sealed Die Mannschaft's fate with a 2-0 victory, VAR awarding Kim Young-gwon a goal which was initially ruled out for offside, though replays showed Toni Kroos had taken a touch.

With Sweden continously leading over Mexico it meant Germany desperately needed goals.

However, after two late goals from the South Korean side, the Germans will head home early. South Korea went down 2-1, with the first Mexican goal coming on a penalty and the second one on a breakaway followed by a defensive lapse.

The jubilation continued for South Korea although there was also disappointment in not progressing.

Germany appeared to have got their World Cup defence back on track with a stoppage time victor of their own against Sweden on Saturday, which followed an opening match defeat to Mexico, but Joachim Low's side were out of sorts once more against Korea.
