Germany eliminated from the World Cup

Share
An understated yet important presence for Mexico

Goals for Ludwig Augustinsson and Andreas Granqvist put Sweden no course for the result it needed to guarantee itself a place in the round of 16 and put Mexico in peril, and an Edson Alvarez own goal after 74 minutes took Mexico's fate out of its own hands.

Needing only a draw to advance, Mexico started tentatively but somehow reached the break on level terms after surviving a Swedish aerial bombardment and a VAR review when Javier Hernandez appeared to handle the ball in his penalty area.

Twelve minutes later it was 3-0 as Alvarez scored a calamitous own goal when he sliced the ball onto his standing leg from six yards and it bounced beyond Ochoa.

Instead, the Germans became the fourth defending champions in the last five tournaments to be eliminated in the group stage following a 2-0 loss to South Korea on Wednesday. With the goal differential advantage, Sweden won the group and will face Group E runner-up Switzerland on Tuesday.

The teams will find out who they play in the next round later this evening, after the final round of matches in Group E. "We can't pull it out of our pocket, it's not going to be easy and I think it's a good lesson for what's to come". During the second half, Mexico potentially beat themselves.

Mexico were simply incapable of dealing with Sweden's aerial bombardment.

This will be the seventh consecutive time that Mexico have progressed from the group stages, however, they may never get a better chance to top a group then they had yesterday.

Mexico's fans in Russia can go ahead and book their accommodation in the southwestern Russian city of Samara, where Mexico will take on its round of 16 opponent on July 2, while those back home will no doubt be once again glued to their screens. "We don't want to stir things up too much".

Mexico have been one of the biggest attractions of this World Cup.

El Tri's faithful could be seen frantically checking their phones for scoring updates in Germany's game soon after Sweden's second goal.

Janne Andersson has once again criticised Germany for the "scornful" celebrations that followed their late victor against his Sweden team last weekend. "We don't need to look at who's not there, we need to look at who will be able to play".

"Today, for the first time I tried to be maybe a purist", he said.

Paulinho and Thiago Silva scored a goal each to give the five-time champs first place in Group E.

Mexico attacked for the rest of the first half, with Lozano's shot blocked, Vela blasting over the bar and Miguel Layun's soft shot easily gathered.
