FIFA World Cup 2018: Germany’s World Cup Dream Died in Russia after Defeat to South Korea

There is no defining defeat. After 90 minutes, it is always a defeat. This is not the first time that the defending champions have been eliminated from the group stage. In fact, Germany is the fourth of the last five world cup champions to crash out of world cup group stage. And of course, after 80 years, Germany went out of the first round of world cup football too.

It is also reminded that Germany not only came to Russia as defending champions but also as a champion of the last summer confederation cup.

Joachim Low was well known that they had problems in the defensive area if Sweden game is considered as a chance for improvement. It was also remarkable that Mesut Ozil who was not present for the first two matches was brought in this match and Muller was not playing from the beginning of the match which could have affected the combination. One can’t deny that they weren’t busy with their club football for the last four years!

It was clearly seen in today’s match which was full of miss passes. They were missing their perfect rhythm. A good connection between player to player was not present. Too many experiments are not good for the team and players which can be a key point for today’s match. This is perhaps worse than Euro 2004.

South Korea got a throw near the corner flag of the right side of Germany in 2 minutes. This was a good start for them. Soon the underdog went for an attack but it was cut out before reaching the forward.

Then in the 4th minute, Ozil was taken down by Koo in midfield. This made him angry. It would be great if he could have shown this attitude for the full time.

From the beginning, it seemed to South Korea not to play an attacking football while it’s a nature of Germany. Perhaps they were waiting when the Germans would break their defence and score.

In 14 minutes of the match, Germany went for a full of attack just like wolves. Suddenly this attack turns into a corner which couldn’t bring any breakthrough. Then in the next minute, they again awarded a corner. Kross and Reus were standing over the corner and sent the ball to Ozil. He crossed it to the post and Sule headed it down.

In the 19th minute, Jung came after a long run-up and hit it to the goal. At first, Neuer attempted to catch it but he was not aware of the flight of the ball and it slept from his gloves. It was about to call a danger for Germany when Son tried to slam it. But Neuer cleared the ball and it’s awarded corner for South Korea.

There were so many miss chances for both teams, especially for Germany. It was a flop day for Hummels. He will remember this day as long as he lives. He didn’t miss once a golden opportunity. He missed more than thrice golden opportunities.

The main drama started in the injury time. South Korea got a corner. The corner reached to Kim and he sent the ball into the net. But wait! An off-side called. Then VAR was checked. The decision went for South Korea and that shattered the German team.

Germans were so frustrated and went for an attack. That couldn’t help them to save the match. In 90+6 minutes, another golden opportunity came for South Korea when Neuer was busy in Korean field without saving his ball. This time Son scored and South Korea sealed the win over Germany. This was also going for VAR but the devastation had done before. Better luck Germany for the next world cup!
