Germany coach Loew refuses to criticise Ozil after World Cup shock

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

Yesterday reigning champions Germany were knocked out of the World Cup at the group stage for the first time since 1938.

Mesut Ozil clashed with a fan after Germany's defeat to South Korea.

And there are still 20 more matches to be played.

The Germans kept peppering the South Korea box with harmless crosses and it was their opponents that came close to scoring from a set piece in the 19th minute after Neuer failed to control a 25-meter free kick from Jung Woo-young. It was first ruled as offside, but following a video review, the referee concluded that South Korea just had scored their second goal of the tournament. Mexico has been to the round of 16 for seven straight World Cups. Mexico fans have since erupted into sheer elation online, tweeting out nothing but love and praise for South Korea. They made the quarter-finals in 2006, losing to France.

"We were eliminated not because we didn't want to win but we never had the chance to take a lead at any point - we were always lagging behind, trying to keep up".

Ozil was dropped by Low for the match against Sweden, which Germany won 2-1 thanks to a late goal from Toni Kroos, whilst Hummels was injured.

BU Alumna Wins Upset Congressional Primary in New York City
Democrats noted that Crowley is their only House incumbent to lose so far this year, compared to several in the GOP. Ocasio-Cortez quickly took to Twitter to say she has "no idea" who Lopez-Pierre is - and denounce his bigotry.

Mexico's 2-1 victory over South Korea silences critics
We had South Korea as the worst team in the tournament at the outset and they did little against Sweden to change our opinion. In the end, Mexico had the ball in the possession for 58% of the time, taking 13 shots on goal , five on target.

Djokovic joins 800-win club with Queen's masterclass
But with a 0-10 deficit against Djokovic, including twice in straight sets at Wimbledon , the odds are not in his favour. Djokovic is through to only his second semifinal of a troubled campaign as he hunts his first title in 2018.

South Korea went physical in this match, committing 24 fouls, and receiving four yellow cards. Wonder if they'll build a statue for the Korean goalkeeper in Mexico City? The loss ended Germany's back-to-back title aspirations before they got any real traction.

Blerim Dzemaili scored first to put the Swiss on top in the 31st minute.

The second half capitulation was a shock.

Switzerland scored in the 88th minute, but it didn't stand up as the victor, as a Costa Rica scored again to level the match three minutes into stoppage time.

South Korea lost its opening two matches but still entered the game with a chance to advance.

With their three goals, Sweden finished atop the group and will play group E runners-up Switzerland.

He added: "We want to accomplish the impossible".
