Germany deserved to go out – Loew

Germany coach Joachim Loew said that his side deserved to be eliminated from the World Cup on Wednesday (June 27) after the reigning champions crashed out following a stunning 2-0 defeat by a tenacious South Korea.

Germany would have progressed with a win at the Kazan Arena but barely looked capable of scoring against the Koreans, let alone going on to successfully defend the title they won in Brazil four years ago.

In the final frantic minutes in front of 41,835 flabbergasted fans, Kim Young-gwon and Son Heung-min finished off Loew’s Germany side with two stoppage-time goals to condemn them to finishing bottom of the group on three points.

The result marked Germany’s first exit in the opening round for the first time in 80 years.
