Five reasons Germany have failed at the World Cup

Time to step It’s time for Son Heung-min to step

Current World Champions, Germany have failed to score in the first half against South Korea in their Group F World Cup match.

Germany ended up last in Group F while Sweden and Mexico advanced to the round of 16.

Four of the last five winners of the previous tournament have now crashed out in the group stage the next time around. "We were really disappointed, that's why a lot of us cried".

Germany won last year's Confederations Cup in Russian Federation even though Loew opted to leave his World Cup-winning stars at home, boosting his reputation further.

"There was nothing and therefore if we don't deserve it, we shouldn't make it to the next round", he said, adding that it was right for Sweden and Mexico to progress to the knockout stages.

Structural issues have blighted Germany's campaign and Korea's late surges again showed them to be tearing at the seams. "We need to congratulate our opponents", an apologetic Loew, who has overseen a golden era in German football since 2006, told reporters.


"I'm shocked because we didn't manage to beat South Korea and qualify", said Loew, who said he will wait for "a couple of hours" before making any decision on his future. Originally called out for offside, the goal was given after video review. They were still in position to advance despite trailing Sweden, but they were waiting some with tears in their eyes for Germany to do the inevitable and ruin their chances of moving on.

Saudi Arabia took third place in Group A behind Uruguay and Russian Federation with one win and two losses, while Iran were No. 3 in Group B with one win, one draw and one loss behind Spain and Portugal. We had our chances and kept on playing all the time but it just didn't work.

From 30 yards out, it should have been fodder for World Cup-winning goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, but after fumbling Jung's dipping drive Neuer scrambled desperately to clear as Son raced to pounce.

In a desperate search for inspiration, Low sent on Mario Gomez and Thomas Muller for Khedira and Goretzka, but it was Werner who passed up another opportunity when he scuffed his effort harmlessly wide after Ozil's 64th-minute corner had been allowed to reach him beyond the far post.

Low has often had to contend with critics claiming his success only came about after he took the reins at the start of a golden era, with some suggesting the country's World Cup triumph of four years ago owed more to the strengths of the players than his coaching. Loew said he had not yet reflected on the future.
