Germany BOOTED out of World Cup in stunning defeat
GERMANY was booted out of the World Cup last night in glorious fashion after they lost to South Korea in a stunning defeat.
The World Cup holders were beaten after a late 2-0 defeat by South Korea, again VAR playing a part.
Ze Germans lost their opening game to Mexico before a late win 2-1 against Sweden on Saturday, but they lost again, just as they did in World War Two.
With six minutes of added time indicated, Young-Gwon Kim (90+2) bundled home from a corner and although the goal was initially ruled out for offside, a VAR review showed the ball coming off the foot of Toni Kroos just before and the decision was reversed.
Five minutes later, South Korea dealt the killer blow as Se-Jong Ju rounded Manuel Neuer – who was high up the field – before setting Heung-Min Son away, and he slotted home into an open net to send Germany crashing out at the World Cup group stage for the first time.
