KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Germany, the reigning World Cup victor and a popular pick to win the tournament again this year, has been knocked out of the World Cup group stage, an utterly shocking development.

Federation Internationale de Football Association says Georg Behlau and Ulrich Voigt must each pay 5,000 Swiss francs ($5,040) fines, and were reprimanded for their unsporting behavior.

Dutch paper AD Sportwereld featured a photo of Germany's players with their hands on their heads at the final whistle against South Korea. "I take responsibility for that and stand up for that, but I thought it was a good team", he said, according to the Daily Mirror.

South Korea will be relying on Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min if they are to make it to the next round.

Low has a deal until 2022, which he signed just before the World Cup, although it's not clear whether he will want to see that out amid the recriminations in his homeland. Swedish captain Andreas Granqvist scored a penalty kick goal in the 65th minute to hand South Korea their first defeat at the tournament.

The South Korean consul general was given a hero's treatment in Mexico City.

Sweden, who at half-time were heading home from Russian Federation, scored three times in the second half to deservedly beat a ragged Mexico 3-0 in Yekaterinburg. "The players, the entire team, the technical officials, we wanted to do everything to give our players the chance to succeed on the pitch". The Germany keeper bobbled the ball and needed to swipe the rebound away from the attackers after a spectacular dive.

Germany had everything to play for, but couldn't beat Korean goalkeeper Jo Hyeonwoo, who played the match of his life.

And this joyous display is a combination of the two.

There is talk of two cliques having developed in the camp, one based around a "Bavarian" center with Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Thomas Müller and Toni Kroos, and the other, dubbed the "Bling-bling gang" by the German press, containing Sami Khedira, Jerome Boateng and Julian Draxler. A 3-0 win over Australia in their last game was scant consolation.

Germany, still with the nucleus of the successful 2014 team, arrived in Russian Federation expected to contend after doing little wrong between World Cups. In the opening match, Senegal upset the defending champions 1-0.

"Congratulations to our opponents, the Swedes and the Mexicans".

Mexico has not made it past the knockout Round of 16 for the past six World Cups.

"Over and Out! (already)", it said, comparing the scenes to 2014 with a picture of the team's celebrations at the last World Cup. "I'm incredibly disappointed by this elimination but I will think about it calmly".
