South Korea went on to win 2-0 with two stoppage-time goals and Germany will go home without getting through the group stage of the World Cup for the first time.

"We deserved to be eliminated", Germany coach Joachim Loew said. I really had the feeling that the team, they really wanted to go forward.

Suffice to say that things deteriorated quickly in terms of global relations after that result. 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.

Leaving aside Uruguay - which won the inaugural World Cup in 1930 before not travelling to Italy for the 1934 edition - it is the 6th time in the history of the competition that the reigning champions have failed to make it past the first hurdle.

Dr Ottorino Barassi, one of FIFA's Vice Presidents, took ownership of the trophy on behalf of the governing body during the conflict by stealing it from a bank vault. We prepare every day for our games always believing that we can reach the next stage.

The first-round elimination was Germany's first since 1938 and their supporters in the stadium were left fuming with their side's poor performance.

He added: "We want to accomplish the impossible". Mexico, also with six points, came in second, even with a negative-one goal differential. Mexico fans have since erupted into sheer elation online, tweeting out nothing but love and praise for South Korea.
