Shambolic Germany sent packing after loss to South Korea

"Germany are the defending champions and number one in the Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking, so I thought about what mistakes Germany might make, because they probably felt they would be able to beat us - that's what everybody thought".

"The disappointment of being eliminated is just huge", Loew added.

But Sweden's 3-0 win against the Mexicans meant Germany desperately needed another injury-time victor to progress against South Korea. "There were three or four big chances we had in the game".

"We needed to throw things forward, and it opened things up in defence".

Low appeared to get some calls right, notably dropping Ozil and Sami Khedira after poor games in the opening defeat against Mexico.

It was also further evidence - coupled with a 1-0 victory over reigning world champions Germany - that Mexico can erase the pain of recent history. "We deserved to be eliminated".

The Wednesday night results set up Last-16 matches early next week.

Later, in Group E play, Brazil defeated Serbia 2-0 to advance to the last-16, while Switzerland also moved on after a 2-2 draw with Costa Rica.

Brazil, having won in 2002, are the only reigning champions of this century to progress past the group stages. "I couldn't imagine we would lose to South Korea".

It meant Sweden topped the group ahead of Mexico, with South Korea jumping into third with Germany rock bottom.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson spoke of his vast pride after his side topped the group with second-half goals against Mexico from Ludwig Augustinsson, Andreas Granqvist and an own goal from Edson Alvarez to move into a last-16 meeting with Switzerland. Gundogan in particular was targeted with boos in the team's friendly against Saudi Arabia on the eve of the World Cup.

Mexico's Edson Alvarez had an own goal in the 74th minute.

It had a tough first match against the Netherlands to contend with, but all seemed to be going as planned when Xabi Alonso slotted in a 27th-minute penalty to give his team a 1-0 lead.
