The group F was intriguingly placed after the second round of matches with Mexico on 6 points and both Sweden and Germany on three points each.

South Korea's Son Heung-Min added another goal a few minutes later in one of the most shocking results in soccer history, officially eliminating defending champion Germany.

It is the first time since 1938 that a Germany or West Germany side has not advanced beyond the first section of the tournament, as Joachim Low's side - top of Fifa's world rankings - finish bottom of Group F.

World champions Germany crashed out of the World Cup as they were beaten 2-0 by South Korea on Wednesday.

Kim Young-gwon's 92nd-minute goal, awarded after a video assistant referee decision, left four-time winners Germany on the brink of elimination.

Kim Young-gwon scored the first goal in the third minute of injury time, a goal that sent the Koreans cheering in Kazan and the Mexicans delirious in Yekaterinburg. He was dispossessed by Ju Se-jong whose long pass was caught by Son who rolled the ball into an empty net.

"It was only after the match that we found out the other score, of course we were disappointed and that's why some of us cried".

Donald Trump salute to N. Korean general sparks controversy
At their meeting in Singapore, the two signed a document to bring peace to the Korean peninsula and rid it of nuclear arms. Kyodo, however, added that some experts see a 15-year timeline for the North's complete denuclearization.

Having struggled to break down a stubborn South Korean outfit for much of the 90 minutes, Germany already knew they were in trouble with Sweden leading Mexico 3-0 - which would have seen the latter two qualify for the Round of 16.

Midfielders - Julian Brandt, Julian Draxler, Leon Goretzka, Ilkay Gundogan, Sami Khedira, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil, Marco Reus, Sebastian Rudy.

The Bayern Munich goalkeeper chose to play in attack, leaving two defenders on the halfway line, but was embarrassingly dispossessed when he did get the ball.

All four teams had a chance to advance into the knockout stage of the World Cup. But the two friendly matches, against Austria and Saudi Arabia, were not good.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson spoke of his pride after his side topped the group with second-half goals from Ludwig Augustinsson, Andreas Granqvist and an own goal from Edson Alvarez.

Germany resumed with more urgency after the interval, but despite edging closer when Loew introduced Mario Gomez just before the hour the big Stuttgart striker headed straight at Jo from Kimmich's cross. A lot of things we built up since 2006, always at least (a) semi-final.
