Low: We ‘deserved’ to go out

Defending-Champion Germany Crash Out of World Cup with Defeat vs. South Korea

Their prayers were answered when late goals from Kim Young-gwon and Son Heung-min secured a stunning win for South Korea, and ensured Mexico and Sweden progressed to the knockout stage at the expense of the Germans. The Germans went home after losing to a South Korea side that had already lost to Sweden and Mexico. South Korea countered by playing Son into a breakaway with an empty net, and the Tottenham star finished the game-and Germany's stay in Russia-with another goal.

With Sweden beating Mexico 3-0 in the other group game, the Koreans fell just short of reaching the last 16 for the first time since 2010.

Germany appeared to have got their World Cup defence back on track with a stoppage time victor of their own against Sweden on Saturday, which followed an opening match defeat to Mexico, but Joachim Low's side were out of sorts once more against Korea.

With loss to South Korea, Germany fails to advance to the round of 16 at the FIFA #WorldCup for the first time. 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. (Victorious Sweden also advanced.) Mexican fans were deliriously thankful to South Korea, sharing photos of celebrations from around the world. It's not every day that you beat the defending World Cup champion - among the favorites this year - to claw your way on top of them in group play standings.

Laura Ingalls Wilder’s name stripped from literary award over racism concerns
The ALSC says Wilder's work continues to be published and read but her "legacy is complex" and "not universally embraced". But let's just take a minute to remember the terrible way Wilder described the Native Americans her family encountered.

From 30 yards out, it should have been fodder for World Cup-winning Neuer, but he fumbled Jung's dipping drive Neuer and scrambled desperately to clear.

The reigning champions were beaten 2-0 by South Korea in a tense, drama-fuelled Group F fixture and exit the competition with just three points to their name. I am shocked. We have to talk about things calmly to work out what to do now.

Toni Kroos tried to spark his side but was denied by Cho Hyun-woo in the 88th minute, one of a number of fine saves by the South Korean keeper.

South Korea controversially claimed their first goal in stoppage time after yet another VAR blow-up saw a potential off-side call land in favour of the underdogs. In Germany we had chances, but shot Goretzki handled by the goalkeeper, and Werner and Hummels from a killer position did not hit the target.
