Mario Gomez, left, Mats Hummels, right, and their German teammates were defeated 2-0 by South Korea at the World Cup on Tuesday in Kazan, Russia. It’s the first time the four-time champions have been eliminated in the first round since 1938.



Defending world champions Germany crashed out of the World Cup after a shock 2-0 loss to South Korea on Wednesday, courtesy of two stoppage-time goals.

South Korea’s Kim Young-gwon scored in added time following a video review and Son Heung-min added another goal just before the final whistle.
