Korea Republic v Germany: Group F - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

FIFA World Cup 2018 produced yet another headline-generating upset as Germany, the defending champions, were ignominiously ruled out of the tournament.

The Group F topsy-turvy ended with Sweden and Mexico qualifying for the knockout stages courtesy of a giant-killing by South Korea. As such, Germany stand last in the group with only 3 points in hand.

Joachim Löw's side opened their World Cup campaign in a very unpromising fashion as they suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of Mexico before securing a last-minute winner against Sweden.

Needless to say, Twitterati lost its cool over Germany's elimination.

"Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers."
