South Korea then stunned the world by defeating Germany 2-0 with two goals in the final minutes of the game.

Football fans have descended on the South Korean embassy in Mexico City, as the Asian nation eliminated Germany from the World Cup with a 2-0 win in Russian Federation this morning.

Outside the South Korean embassy in Mexico City, fans chanted "Corea, hermano, ya eres Mexicano", which translates to "Korea, brother, you're now Mexican".

"Yesterday we said there was only a 1% chance and so I told my players it really was a last-ditch effort for them and I told them that they had to fight until the end. But now we are at a World Cup, it's a new cycle, a new format", said coach Tite in an attempt to keep feet on the ground.

"I hope we can build on that, manage to improve and do better in the future". But we have young players who are talented and have the potential to go forward.

"Those mediocre people who have never achieved anything in life will say that it's a miracle that we got through, but what we have achieved is important", he wrote on his Instagram page. 'I take responsibility for that and stand up for that, but I thought it was a good team.

'We're sorry for not playing like world champions, and as painful as it is, we deserve to be out'.

'Congrats to Sweden and Mexico, and of course to South Korea on their win.

But the coach stressed that "with the elimination, with the deep disappointment that we have experienced, we now need to think about which are the correct measures to take".
