South Korea national football team players show their respect to fans after they beat Germany 2-0 in their 2018 FIFA World Cup Group F match at Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia, on June 27, 2018.

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.

Joachim Loew is contemplating his future after Germany were knocked out of the World Cup.

Four-times champions and four-time runners-up, Germany were heavily backed to retain their title and add another triumph to Loew's long list of honours.

Trump's Supreme Court search begins, with youth a key factor
Trump said he may begin interviewing candidates this weekend and is already considering two women. The president said he was not intending to ask candidates about their positions on Roe v.

Therefore, Germany are going home while the World Cup dream lives on for Sweden and Mexico. "How we go from here is something we have to talk about", he said. "Also the dynamism that led to the goalscoring opportunities was not there, so we deserve to be eliminated". "We didn't deserve to move into the round of 16". South Korea were also eliminated despite the victory.

And Loew, the 58-year-old who guided Germany to the world crown in Brazil four years ago, admitted he now needs time to decide whether his 12-year reign will continue - despite signing a new four-year contact in May.

A lack of tempo in Germany's game has been a glaring factor and when the pressure was on, none of his stars could crack the South Korean defence.

Mario Gomez and Thomas Mueller, who was dropped from the starting side, were injected soon after the break but a collective paralysis seemed to have taken hold. "Even when it was 0-1, I think we kept trying to turn it all around".

Throughout the regular season, he proved to be the most dominant scorer in the league and also happened to play on the best team. Harden's award will undoubtedly cause more debate to occur in the coming days due to James' similarly-incredible campaign.

"Today it was not easy but, yes, no team could get through easily". "He will be the one who earns the armband". "For us, this is a huge disappointment".

After failing to find a way past superb Korea 'keeper Jo Hyeonwoo in the second half, Germany could only look on in shock as U.S. referee Mark Geiger called for the video assistant referee to intervene after the unmarked Kim Younggwon had bundled his shot past Neuer from a corner early in stoppage time.

Kim was not so profligate when he fired home from close range - although he was initially given offside before a VAR review sparked renewed celebrations - and Son completed the job.

Minutes later, Germ-any's humiliation was completed with a touch of farce.
