  • Germany’s World Cup exit How papers across the globe covered the news

When the World Cup started it quickly became apparent Sami Khedira looked every one of his 31 years in midfield while Thomas Muller, with 16 goals for Bundesliga champions Bayern, had not scored since April. The passion was very visible, especially among Brazil fans, after Germany failed to make it out of the Group Stage in the World Cup for the first time ever, fans host a fake funeral for the German Soccer Team. Low has subsequently admitted he felt there was a sense of superiority leading up to the 1-0 defeat to Mexico in their opening World Cup game.

The 2019 World Cup will be held in England and Wales and will include only ten teams from across the world.

"It's very, very hard to put it into words", Germany defender Mats Hummels said. We congratulate Sweden and Mexico on reaching playoffs, and South Korea on their victory.

Germany went 1-0-2 in the Tournament with their only win coming against Sweden when Toni Kroos scroed the game victor deep into added time.

Mexicans watched in horror as their side were thumped 3-0 in Yekaterinburg, leaving them keeping a nervous eye on the match between Germany and South Korea about 500 miles (800 kilometres) to the west in Kazan.

Germany ended up last in Group F while Sweden and Mexico advanced to the round of 16. "Before the game, we were the first national team to not be qualified with six points and achieving that means something. Even when it was 0-1, I think we kept trying to turn it all around".

'Colombia should be no problem for England'
In global football, that's just nearly a desperate call to see a loose team with no understanding of what we're trying to do. Among the latter group is Harry Kane , a man very much in form.

One team the likes of Argentina, Brazil and Portugal wouldn't like to meet in the knockout round is Germany.

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.

But moments after they beat Serbia 2-0 to secure a quarter-final date with Mexico, the wily coach was once again playing down expectations.

A 93rd minute own goal by the unfortunate Yann Somer from a Bryan Ruiz penalty gave the central American side a deserved 2-2 draw on a night of late drama.

Sweden won the group and will play Switzerland on Tuesday in St. Petersburg.
