Jochim Low speaks out on Mesut Ozil performances after World Cup exit

That is, unless winless South Korea somehow managed to avoid defeat by Germany and erase the possibility of a three-way tie for the group, which Mexico would have lost on goal difference.

Although the Arsenal playmaker created the best opportunity of the match for Mats Hummels when the game was still goalless, the 29-year-old was criticised by his manager and photographed clashing with fan.

But this is the first time for them, when the First Round has been in a group stage format.

Mexico were far from convincing as Sweden took control of Group F and qualified as group winners, which left Osorio frustrated with their showing. I really had the feeling that the team, they really wanted to go forward.

Sharing the news on Twitter after South Korea's victory over Germany and expressing their gratitude with hashtag #graciascorea, Aeroméxico wrote, "We love you, Korea! We deserved to be eliminated".

Kim Young-Gwon scores the opening goal for South Korea in a 2-0 win over Germany.

"We did not deserve to be winning the title once again", Loew said.

But Sweden poured in three goals against them in the second half, not only putting themselves atop the group, but putting Mexico in danger of missing out on advancing altogether.

"Unfortunately - or maybe fortunately - we have no experience of such an early exit from the World Cup", said Rolf Buerkl, an expert at the GfK market research group.

The "young millionaires" refrain could perhaps be applied to numerous teams in Russian Federation, and although the Germans battled until the end to beat the Swedes, they appeared to be infected by a meek resignation to their fate as they toiled against South Korea.

Mexico has not made it past the knockout Round of 16 for the past six World Cups. A 3-0 win over Australia in their last game was scant consolation.

They knew they were going home after just two matches of a disastrous trophy defence, as a 5-1 humbling at the hands of the Netherlands was followed by a 2-0 defeat against Chile at the Maracana. "The disappointment is deep inside me".
