Jens Lehmann explains why Mesut Ozil flopped at the World Cup

"We have seen that in this World Cup there are no easy games".

The embassy was bombarded by phone calls thanking South Koreans, Korea's Yonhap news agency said, including one from Mexico's undersecretary for foreign affairs.

"We knew that Sweden were leading but we didn't have enough to get a goal".

"They've been in office for nearly the same length of time, like eating Cordon bleu together". I'm still angry and disappointed and at the same time I feel sorry for all our fans who supported us in the stadium or at home in front of the tv or at public viewings. "The players, the entire team, the technical officials, we wanted to do everything to give our players the chance to succeed on the pitch".

Germany's shock exit means that the three previous winners of the competition have now crashed out at the group stage four years later. 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.

Are you happy that Germany are out? "So, we deserve to be eliminated yes".


After silencing Osorio's critics with impressive wins over Germany and South Korea, Mexico almost blew it against Sweden and only progressed because of Germany's incredible defeat to South Korea.

Instead, they conceded two late goals while chasing the game to lose 2-0 to the Koreans, leaving the Swedes, who beat Mexico 3-0, and the Central Americans to progress with Germany rock bottom of the group.

Germany ended up last in a group it expected to win.

Germany were stunned 2-0 by South Korea today to exit the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"Over and Out! (already)", it said, comparing the scenes to 2014 with a picture of the team's celebrations at the last World Cup.

After a draw against Switzerland in their opening match, Brazil's in a groove again, winning two in a row, including Wednesday's game against Serbia 2-0. "The disappointment is deep inside me".
