The German Football Association (DFB) has apologised to the nation the morning after Joachim Loew's side were sensationally knocked out of the World Cup with a 2-0 defeat to South Korea.

Both were dropped for the 2-1 win over Sweden after woeful performances in the opening shock defeat to Mexico, yet neither made an impact when recalled for yesterday's 2-0 defeat to South Korea.

Germany for the first time since 1938, not out of the group.

But after spurning a series of scoring chances, Germany were stunned in five dramatic stoppage-time minutes as South Korea scored twice to record a historic win over the world's number one-ranked team and leave the Germans rock bottom of the group. Ki Sung-yueng is really a pillar for our team, he takes lot of pressure from us.

Among those arrested in the senate building were Pramila Jayapal , a Democratic member of Congress representing Seattle. The protest began in the streets of DC before moving to the Hart building, one of three Senate office buildings.

When the going got tough on this occasion, he and Germany failed on the world stage, any sense of euphoria embarrassingly vanishing. South Korea's win and Sweden turning over Mexico ended their dreams of retaining their title.

"We need a couple of hours to see things clearly". I couldn't imagine that we would lose to South Korea. VAR confirmed there was nothing wrong with Kim's precise finish after the linesperson initially flagged for offside.

Despite only recently returning from a fracture foot, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was too often called upon as Germany's last line of defence. We had our chances and kept on playing all the time but it just didn't work. "We made numerous mistakes against Mexico, fewer against Sweden, but we still lost the ball in midfield".

South Korean fans celebrated wildly, as did those of Mexico and Sweden as they advanced into the last 16, and South Korea head coach Shin Tae-yong will now be looking ahead to the 2019 Asian Cup.

Iran economic protests shut Tehran's Grand Bazaar
The protests then spiraled out of control, with people openly criticizing both Rouhani and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. On Monday, traders protested on the Hafez Bridge in the Iranian capital of Tehran.

Loew had changed his line-up to mix youth with experience, calling back Hummels, Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil while also fielding Niklas Suele and new Bayern signing Leon Goretzka.

Son sprinted to retrieve a long ball, and with Neuer having gone upfield to try to help his side score, the Tottenham forward rolled a low, angled shot into the open goal to seal one of the most unlikely wins in recent World Cup history.

After failing to find a way past superb Korea 'keeper Jo Hyeonwoo in the second half, Germany could only look on in shock as United States 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.

"South Korea has players who can execute fast breaks, we will try to adapt", Loew said.
