However, it was not the biggest surprise, as the Korean team scored the second goal just a minute after the first one. Neuer left the German scoring area and Son Heung-min scored another goal.

In such situation, Germany just hadn’t time to retaliate. With South Korea’s victory, Germany has become the fourth defending world champion ever to be eliminated from the tournament in the group stage.
Following the match, football fans rushed to Twitter to make fun of the outstanding competition.
