Germany's World Cup failure met with schadenfreude from German newspaper

To do this they had to beat the South Korean team, which was originally considered an outsider of the group having suffered two defeats earlier.

There were no surprises in Group B's finishing positions as Spain and Portugal progressed to the knockout stages, but their opponents didn't make it easy for them.

"Friendlies and tournament qualifiers for a footballing nation like Germany are not proper indicators of the state of our team". To be honest, if we can't score a goal in 90 minutes against South Korea then we don't deserve to go through. The 2014 champions have been sent packing from the World Cup after finishing bottom of group F.

Mueller, who performed well below expectations in Germany's opening two games, was left on the bench as Loew handed Schalke 04's Leon Goretzka his first World Cup start.

They did just that by overcoming Senegal 1-0, and the coupling of that result with Poland's 1-0 triumph over Japan meant Aliou Cisse's side were eliminated on fair play rules.

That leaves Spain and Brazil, with the latter fresh from topping their group at a 10th consecutive World Cup even if they have been slow-burners so far. "We've not won a knockout game since 2006", he said.

"As a player on the field at the moment, I knew that was going to be a good goal", Son said. The team didn't show what it is normally capable of and, as the coach, I am responsible for this.

By winning the match and thus the group, Belgium moves to the "side of death" for the knockout round, where four of the top five teams in the world according to Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings - Brazil, Belgium, Portugal, and Argentina - will all compete for one spot in the final. "In the second round everybody would have liked to play against us". We have to analyse what mistakes we have made. "We're just pleased we're in the next round. The World Cup is an incredible social event that brings the passion for football into limits, because we are speaking about countries, but innovations in the World Cup, I don't see it". "Many things that gave us the World Cup four years ago we were missing in this World Cup".

Midfielder Sami Khedira backed Low, adding that he would consider his own worldwide future in the weeks ahead.
