Germany left it as late as they possibly could to stay alive in this Fifa World Cup 2018, and now they will look to get to the "they're back to their best" stage when they play South Korea for a place in the last 16.

"We did not deserve it, it has to be said very clearly".

In the day's other games, Brazil went through at the top of Group E after a 2-0 win over Serbia, while Switzerland will qualify alongside them by virtue of a 2-2 draw with Costa Rica. Germany's ill-fated tournament in Russian Federation came to an end after suffering a humiliating 2-0 loss against Korea Republic in the final Group F match.

The four-time winners, who had not been eliminated in a World Cup first round since 1938, were a shadow of their once dominant selves, managing only two goals in their three group games. South Korea knocked out defending champ Germany in a 2-0 match on Wednesday. For those expecting to see an even more convincing result against South Korea, sadly not.

In election victory speech, Erdogan says Turkey will advance in Syria
In his victory speech, he said: "The victor of this election is each and every individual among my 81 million citizens". Ince, who complained that it was an unfair election, accepted Erdogan's victory during a news conference Monday.

Desperate to win and keep its slim chance of advancing alive, Germany sent its goalkeeper roaming into the offensive end - and it was then that South Korea added a late goal to put the match out of reach, collecting a loose ball and shooting it downfield, where Son Heung-min sprinted to put it away for a 2-0 edge.

The Germans threw numbers forward in search of an equaliser in the closing stages but Korea managed to snatch the opener in the third minute of stoppage time, with Kim Young-Gwon's strike initially being ruled out for off-side, before the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) overturned the decision.

Numerous players have come under fire for their displays and Mesut Ozil's dejected manner at the final whistle wasn't enough to spare him a barrage of criticism.

Mexico fans, miserable just moments before, went absolutely insane both in the stadium and around the world. "We were eliminated not because we didn't want to win but we never had the chance to take a lead at any point - we were always lagging behind, trying to keep up".

The scene in Kazan is set - a must-win match for a team of established stars, World Cup veterans and reigning champions against a "minnow" side with no hope of advancing to the Last 16. But Germany came out with an uninspired effort against South Korea, and its failure came in especially gut-wrenching fashion.

And Neuer, who lost the ball in midfield for the second goal, has admitted the 2014 winners just weren't good enough in Russian Federation.

Toni Kroos tried to spark his side but was denied by Cho Hyun-woo in the 88th minute, one of a number of fine saves by the South Korean keeper.

Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon joined them, tweeting on Thursday: "Reality beat our imagination today" and praising the South Korean footballers.
