The Germans' fate was sealed by two goals from Son Heung-min and Kim Young-gwon in added time.

Germany lost to South Korea 2-0, and got eliminated during the group stages for the first time since 1938.

"At the moment it is hard to say (why we have been eliminated)".

"The press usually just looks at the result, they criticise us a lot without knowing all the internal aspects of it, they don't know how we prepare in detail".

Germany's Thomas Mueller, right, and Mario Gomez walk on the pitch at the end of the group F match between South Korea and Germany, at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia, Wednesday, June 27, 2018.

Mexico were the dominant forces coming to the match as they had beaten Germany 1-0 in their Group F opener.

The obsession with attacking, with playing on the front foot, is reflected in the fact that Germany have conceded in each of their past eight games, a run stretching back to November when they drew 0-0 against England. His victor was simply the icing on the cake as South Korea became the first Asian nation to beat Germany at the Finals.

Croatia were confirmed Group D winners after their 2-1 win over Iceland and will play Denmark in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday in the last 16.

Germany are out of the 2018 World Cup.

Soon after right-back Lee Yong delivered one of the few quality Korean crosses of the entire tournament and the ball fell to Son who volleyed the ball just over from a decent position.

The Arsenal playmaker was employed in a relatively deep role and he simply wasn't able to cut through South Korea's resolute defence. That goal was huge for Mexico, as they would advance to the knockout stage despite losing to Sweden.

"I'm so incredibly proud, nearly moved as the thought of how we performed on the pitch, so disciplined, I think we've grown since our last match". Joachim Low's side also poured 26 shots, but only six went to target. That's because South Korea entered the match with a slim chance to advance but couldn't get it done.

Though the unexpected elimination of Germany has created quite a buzz on the Internet, it has also triggered a conversation connected to World War.

However, the VAR review showed the ball had deflected into Kim's path off of a German player - Toni Kroos - and the goal was given.

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 Korean celebrations went up another notch when Son sprinted to retrieve a long ball, and with Germany's captain and keeper Manuel Neuer having gone upfield to try to help his side score, the Tottenham forward fired a low shot into the net to wrap up the win and leave the Germans distraught.
