Hundreds of Mexico soccer fans danced and cheered outside the South Korean embassy in Mexico City on Wednesday, grateful after the Asian country's victory over Germany guaranteed the national team a spot in the knock-out stages of the World Cup.

"The disappointment of us being eliminated is just huge", said Germany coach Joachim Loew, who is now under pressure to quit despite signing a contract extension until 2022 last month.

They were on the verge of being knocked out by Sweden as they trailed by a goal but Kroos' injury-time victor revived Germany's hopes of becoming the first nation to defend the World Cup since 1962. "We lost but we're in the next round", Alcocer said, "So, we're very happy". What had undone them was the 1-0 defeat to Mexico.

Germany qualified for Russian Federation with a ideal record of 10 wins, but Hummels said the team had not played well since they wrapped up qualification late a year ago.

"We put ourselves in this situation after the Mexican game", he admitted. How should we be risky to an opponent if we deliver such performances?

With their three goals, Sweden finished atop the group and will play group E runners-up Switzerland.

But Sweden after all made it through to the round of 16 with a dominant victory of 3-0 against Mexico at a match in Yekaterinburg which was held at the same.

"We've done a fantastic job today with this match", Andersson said.

LeBron James basically ruled out the Rockets as a destination
James has earned more than $230 million in salary alone during his National Basketball Association career, according to Spotrac. There was never a chance James would pick up the player option simply to remain in Cleveland for one more season.

"We needed to throw things forward and it opened things up in defence". I think we need to take action.

I know some big nations have found it tough going in this year's group stages, but I still thought Germany, despite not playing anywhere near their best in the opening two games, would make it into the knockout phase.

One video shows a Korean man clutching a Swedish flag while being hurled into the air by a group of Mexicans shouting "Korea, Korea, Korea".

La Roja had won three successive major global tournaments when the tiki-taka technicians arrived in Brazil but the 2014 World Cup proved a step too far.

He said: "It wasn't only Ozil, a number of other players didn't perform as they normally would".

"We're all stunned - we're shocked", said Thomas Mueller, the pillar of the 2014 team who seemed strangely unable to influence events this time.

Major German shopping centre chain Kaufhof offered a 40-percent price cut on World Cup merchandise in a promotion called "Too bad, Germany".

The performance was summed up in a contrite tweet from the team's official account.
