Football news: The defending champions Germany exit the Fifa world cup after Korea shocker

The current holders Germany constantly crashed out of the first round of the FIFA world cup, for prolly the first time since 1938 after they lost 2-0 to South Korea with Var used to award two injury-time goals Tuesday.

Joachim Low’s side went into the game having to need to match or better Sweden’s result against Mexico, but they constantly failed to break down Korea’s dogged resistance and were undone at the last as Kim Young Gwon and Son netted.

If the Germany coach low through his problem were behind him after a superb second half Germany’s 2-1 win over Sweden in their second group stage f game. He was basically wrong and involvement of Mesut Ozil in the front four did little to inspire his turgid team.

South Korea gave writhing they had in tremendous hot conditions in Kazan and they got their reward in stoppage time when Kim struck in close range and had an offside decision overturned by var before son raced through the defense of Germany and rolled the ball through the post with an empty net.

So Low will obviously face questions as to why his side was so desperately lacking in cohesion in Russia and when the stakes were so high. Germany was one of the sides predicted to win the world cup but a shocking exit happened in Russia that Is why this world cup tournament is so unpredictable.
