Germans put brave face on soccer defeat as their world wobbles

Ecstatic Mexican fans besieged the South Korean embassy in their capital to celebrate with diplomats after the Asian team stunned Germany at the World Cup and ensured Mexico's progress to the last 16 in Russian Federation.

About 500 fans gathered at Incheon International Airport, some of them throwing eggs at the players.

When the match ended with Heung-Min Son tapping the ball into an open goal off a counterattack in the 90+6' minute, the ecstatic mob found a random Korean outside the stadium and hoised him up - even though he was cheering for Sweden.

Germany's 0-2 defeat to South Korea which saw them crash out of the World Cup on Wednesday left them to join a group of teams which have gone from being world champions in one World Cup to be eliminated in the first round in the next edition.

Their group was deemed to be an easy one prior to the tournament - sure Sweden, South Korea and Mexico are creditable sides with some genuine quality in their squads, but Germany were expected to qualify as undeniable winners, with the other three fighting for second place.

"I think we tried our best, it wasn't a lack of that", Kroos said. Maybe we thought at the push of a button we could shift gears, but we lost against Mexico.

"It's a dark day for German football", Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer said.

The first holders not to win a match in the next World Cup also failed to score a goal during a disastrous campaign in Japan and South Korea.

"We are so proud of you", the newspaper said on its front page, adding the game "shook South Korea upside down".

"Before the tournament, we said that the world champions have to lead the way".

"But Germany didn't deserve to be winning the World Cup again, we didn't deserve to move into the last 16".

"Personally, I am one of the first to take responsibility and we now have to live with the consequences".

Mexicans were watching in horror as their team was thrashed by Sweden 3-0, leaving their only hope of getting out of Group F an unlikely Korean victory over the defending champions.

An incredible revelation has come out in the wake of Germany's shock World Cup exit. The Brazilian media is celebrating Germany's defeat because its national team had a crushing defeat against Germany in the semi-finals of the last World Cup.
