Germany had won the World Cup in 2014 and went to Russia with high expectations but however when it comes to the World Cup there is always a major team who comes into the tournament with high expectations then falters.

Germany’s group consisted of Mexico, Sweden and South Korea which many would favor Germany top after all they had one of the best shot-stoppers in the world in Manuel Neuer, they had Thomas Muller, Timo Werner, Toni Kroos, Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich and many other players. They had won the FIFA Confederations Cup the previous year and were confident going into the prestigious tournament.

They ended up losing the first game to Mexico 1-0 and it was scored by uprising star Hirving Lozano which was a major upset for the Germans. Then in the next game Sweden took the lead against them through Ola Toivonen.

In the second half they got back in the game thanks to an equalizer from Marcos Reus then they were given hope in injury time when Toni Kroos blasted his free-kick home from a difficult angle to give Germany hope of still getting something out of the World Cup and possibly retaining their trophy that they won in Brazil.

However South Korea who had already been knocked out arrived into the match with a point to prove.  South Korea scored in the 92nd minute to practically eliminate Germany but they still had several minutes to salvage something from the game and try reach the knockout stages.
