The defending champions crashed out after losing to South Korea 2-0, their earliest World Cup exit in 80 years, and Sweden beat Mexico 3-0 to top Group F.

When Sweden’s third goal went in Mexican fans were in despair, but their tears turned to cheers as South Korea continued to hold the Germans, then scored two goals in a dramatic injury time period.

Fans celebrated outside the Yekaterinburg Arena in Russia and at South Korea’s embassy in Mexico City by chanting ‘Korean, brother, now you’re Mexican!’
