Marco Reus delivers honest opinion on Arsenal star Mesut Ozil

GETTYThomas Muller has been dropped by Germany boss Joachim Low at the World Cup

German fans got a massive jolt when their team failed to qualify for the knock out stage of the FIFA World Cup on Wednesday. It happened to other nations before. "We believe there will be a transition that will take place after the World Cup, regardless of the outcome of the tournament, and no one is better equipped to handle that than Jogi Low".

A win over Germany and Sweden's loss to Mexico would have forced three teams, except Mexico, to count tiebreakers.

They will inevitably point to the disallowed penalty in the highly-charged 2-1 defeat to Switzerland when Aleksandar Mitrovic was wrestled to the ground as the point when their World Cup went awry.

The Bayern centre-back is fit to start and he replaces team-mate Jerome Boateng, who is suspended.

The leaders must be the first to take the fall.

There were also issues within the camp after scandal struck when midfielders Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan were pictured with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at an event in London in May.

Loew brought on substitutes Mario Gomez and Thomas Mueller on either side of the 60-minute mark but his players kept giving the ball away, with most of their attacking combinations lacking precision and speed.

Instead, they conceded two late goals while chasing the game to lose 2-0 to the Koreans, leaving the Swedes, who beat Mexico 3-0, and the Central Americans to progress with Germany rock bottom of the group. But the team never really seemed to recover from its opening 1-0 loss to Mexico.

Frustrated Germans, including their goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, moved forward to score a goal. That is why we are deservedly out.

South Korea went physical in this match, committing 24 fouls, and receiving four yellow cards.

"I think first of all we need to congratulate our two opponents who have made it out of the group", he said in his post-match press conference.

South Korea needed to beat Germany and then have Mexico defeat Sweden to have a chance of advancing from the group stage.
