Germany ended up last in Group F while Sweden and Mexico advanced to the round of 16.

It's not every day that you beat the defending World Cup champion - among the favorites this year - to claw your way on top of them in group play standings.

South Korea, meanwhile, are also in with a shout, despite losing both of their first two matches. It was initially ruled out for offside but a video review revealed the ball had touched a German defender and the celebrations began.

South Korea's injury-time goals by Kim Young-Gwon and Son saw Germany plunge to bottom of Group F. Unfortunately, Germany's confused and blunt overall performances in Russian Federation warranted little more.

L’actrice Heather Locklear a encore été arrêtée sous l’emprise de l’alcool
Selon des sources policières de TMZ , l'actrice aurait été fortement intoxiquée à l'arrivée des forces de l'ordre à son domicile. Elle a ensuite été emmenée à l'hôpital puis en prison, où elle a été détenue puis relâchée contre caution de 20 000 dollars.


The defeat was sealed for three minutes in added time when Neuer was caught out playing in-field, thus allowing Son to race ahead and finish into an empty net.

This is the third time in succession that the defending champions have been eliminated in the group stages.

"It was only after the match that we found out the other score, of course we were disappointed and that's why some of us cried".

Joachim Low's side went into the game needing to match or better Sweden's result against Mexico, but failed to break down Korea's dogged resistance while the Scandinavians romped to a 3-0 victory. The Germany keeper bobbled the ball and needed to swipe the rebound away from the attackers after a spectacular dive.

Ronaldo-Messi debate goes far deeper than goals scored
No one has had rougher treatment from the opposition than the world's priciest player, Neymar. Tomorrow Argentina is going to start the World Cup with relation to their necessity to win.


That left Germany with 40 minutes to find the one goal they needed to qualify at Mexico's expense and Kroos, their lifesaver against Sweden, just fired wide nearly at the same time the Swedes went 2-0 up through Andreas Granqvist's penalty. Suele made his first World Cup appearance as a replacement for Jerome Boateng.

Sweden are an effective passing side that could potentially frustrate the Germans.

"I didn't think Thomas Muller had been that convincing in the first two matches and I wanted to make a point there [by dropping him]".

Germany resumed with more urgency after the interval, but despite edging closer when Loew introduced Mario Gomez just before the hour the big Stuttgart striker headed straight at Jo from Kimmich's cross.

Trump denies he's to blame for Harley-Davidson decision
It is also unclear exactly what taxes Trump is referring to since American-made Harleys will not be subject to import tariffs. For decades, he has claimed that the United States is being taken advantage of by other nations. "Don't take on Harley".


Should Neymar and Brazil stumble in Moscow, Switzerland are hoping a win over Costa Rica in Nizhny Novgorod could catapult them into the last 16 as Group E winners. Germany, one of the pre-tournament favorites, was out.
