    BBC News World Cup 2018: Germany out of tournament after losing to South Korea

    Media playback is not supported on this device


    Defending champions Germany have been eliminated from the 2018 World Cup after losing to South Korea in Kazan.
    Kim Young-gwon's 92nd-minute goal, awarded after a video assistant referee decision, left four-time winners Germany on the brink of elimination.
    Then six minutes into stoppage time, with Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in possession in the opponents' half, Ju Se-jong gained control of the ball, launched it forward and Son Heung-min tapped into an empty net to score the second.


    It is the first time since 1938 that a Germany or West Germany side has not advanced beyond the first section of the tournament, as Joachim Low's side - top of Fifa's world rankings - finish bottom of Group F.
    Sweden finish top of the group, with Mexico second, and South Korea third.
    Eighty years ago, Germany lost 4-2 in a replay against Switzerland to go out in the first round when it was a straight knockout tournament, but their 2018 exit was the first time Germany had ever failed to make it through the group stage.

    Wasteful Germany's missed chances cost them

    With Sweden winning 3-0 against Mexico in the other Group F game, and it being goalless in Kazan, Germany knew they had to score in a frantic finish.
    A win for Germany would have edged Mexico out on goal difference - but the drama came at the other end as Kim put the ball into the net, although it was initially ruled out for offside.
    However, the VAR review showed the ball had deflected into Kim's path off of a German player - Toni Kroos - and the goal was given.
    With Germany desperately looking for a goal to get back in the match, Neuer joined the attack.
    But he was caught out as a long ball left Tottenham forward Son with the simple task of walking the ball into the net to spark jubilant celebrations among the Asian side, even though their elimination had already been confirmed.


    The Germans will regret their wastefulness in front of goal when the game was goalless.
    South Korea's goalkeeper Cho Hyeon-woo made a fine one-handed save from Leon Goretzka's header and Timo Werner volleyed wide from near the penalty shot.
    Mats Hummels headed over the top when unmarked six yards out in the closing stages, before South Korea's two late goals.
    It means Germany's hopes of becoming the first team to retain the World Cup since Brazil's victories in 1958 and 1962 ended in embarrassing fashion.
    South Korea out, but still celebrate a memorable win

    South Korea went into the match with no points from their opening two games after losing 1-0 to Sweden and 2-1 to Mexico.
    However, they had a mathematical chance of qualifying for the last 16 for only the third time in 10 competition appearances, although they needed Mexico to beat Sweden.
    South Korea had the first chance when Jung Woo-young's free-kick was fumbled by Neuer, who punched clear bravely as Son tried to convert the rebound.
    The Tottenham forward also lashed a volley wide when it was goalless, before being booked in the second half as referee Mark Geiger thought he had dived in an attempt to win a penalty.
    Even though the score in Ekaterinburg ended South Korea's hopes of going through, they still sensed a memorable win over Germany.
    The team ranked 57th in the world achieved that victory thanks to the two late goals, both of which were celebrated as if they had qualified themselves.
    More to follow.
