How did Germany fare at the 2018 FIFA World Cup?

The Germans bowed out in the group stages

Germany had a disappointing outing at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, not getting past the group stage and finishing bottom of Group F.

They suffered a 1-0 defeat to Mexico in their opener, with Hirving Lozano's 35th-minute strike doing the damage.

The Germans were coached by former manager Joachim Low at the time and managed to win their second fixture against Sweden.

A 2-1 comeback win for Die Mannschaft was courtesy of Marco Reus' 48th-minute effort and a Toni Kroos free-kick in the dying embers.

However, Germany bowed out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup after losing their final group game against South Korea.

Kim Young-gwon and Son Heung-Min scored in injury time to send the Germans packing.

They will hope to do better at the 2022 FIFA World Cup and add to the four World Cup trophies they have already won.
