Germany's World Cup failure met with schadenfreude from German newspaper

Fortunately for Mexico, the reigning World Cup champions suffered a stunning 2-0 loss to South Korea.

With a couple of late goals, South Korea ensured Joachim Low's side became the fourth champions in the last five World Cups to be eliminated at the group stage in the defence of their title.

Germany qualified for Russian Federation with a ideal record of 10 wins, but Hummels said the team had not played well since they wrapped up qualification late previous year. "We didn't score in this game and in the Mexico game and this is not good enough".

Mexican airline Aeromexico announced a 20 percent discount on its Korean flights, saying: "We love you Korea!"

Mexico put its 2018 FIFA World Cup future in doubt Wednesday after the team fell 3-0 to Sweden, surrendering control of Group F.

An honest tweet was sent from the national team's official Twitter account the morning after the game, admitting that they deserved to be heading home.


"We believe there will be a transition that will take place after the World Cup, regardless of the outcome of the tournament, and no one is better equipped to handle that than Jogi Loew". They finished bottom of the group.

"Of course we are extremely disappointed in ourselves and the result and the World Cup we played".

One source said: 'The whole squad, the whole organisation, thought they are the World Cup winners. "I wasn't happy with the way we defended but that's a learning curve for me".

It's extremely hard, at times impossible, for a coach to know the exact moment when it's right to leave. "Luckily the Koreans did us a favour", said Alan Gonzalez, 29, a lawyer.

The Germans graciously congratulated their group rivals Mexico and Sweden on their progress, as well as South Korea on their famous victory.

But the coach stressed that "with the elimination, with the deep disappointment that we have experienced, we now need to think about which are the correct measures to take".
