Joachim Loew considering Germany future after shock World Cup 2018 exit

Both teams could potentially qualify

Son has been in action for South Korea at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer, and helped his side pick up their only win of the competition with a 2-0 victory over Germany on Wednesday.

It is the first time Germany have failed to qualify from the group stages at a World Cup since 1938 as the holders became the latest defending champions to crash out early. This was South Korea's first win at the 2018 World Cup after losing 1-0 to Sweden and falling 2-1 to Mexico.

South Korea's Kim Young-gwon scores their first goal against Germany in Kazan on Wednesday.

The German national team sensationally lost to South Korea failed to reach the playoffs of the world Cup.

For South Korea there was jubilation in collecting a first World Cup win over Germany in three attempts. The disappointment is deep inside me.

Germany won last year's Confederations Cup in Russian Federation even though Loew opted to leave his World Cup-winning stars at home, boosting his reputation further.

"We didn't deserve to win the title again, we didn't deserve to get into the last 16".

"We congratulate Sweden and Mexico on going through and South Korea on yesterday's win", the message continued.

"We will have to have discussions tomorrow, we'll see how it goes". It was a stunning result, both for the team that had come to Russian Federation as the world's No. 1 and for South Korea, which wasn't listed in the top 50 when this tournament began.

Kim was not so profligate when he fired home from close range - although he was initially given offside before a VAR review sparked renewed celebrations - and Son completed the job.

The result sparked huge celebrations among the legions of Mexican fans in Russian Federation, and also back home in Mexico City, not least when locals mobbed the South Korean embassy and hoisted the ambassador onto their shoulders, before marching him around in thanks for his team's heroics in helping Mexico into the last 16.

"There is 1 percent chance, there is still hope", South Korea forward Son Heung-min said on the eve of the Group F game at Kazan Arena.

In case you missed last night's developments at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, a lot happened. But the team never really seemed to recover from its opening 1-0 loss to Mexico.

Germany: Neuer Kimmich, Hummels, Sula, Hector (Brandt, 78) - Khedira (Gomez 59), Schweinsteiger - Reus, Ozil, Goretzka (Muller, 62) - Werner.

"South Korea has players who can execute fast breaks, we will try to adapt", Loew said.

"It's a dark day for German football", Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer said.
