  • Hummels to return Rudy doubtful

Quality players like him will play a big part in Germany's future and one thing is certain, after this World Cup they will be looking to bounce back in Euro 2020. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer's lack of action for months before the World Cup meant they didn't have a reliable rock they used to have in the previous editions.

I was as shocked as everyone else to see them exit yesterday, losing 2-0 to South Korea.

Their group was deemed to be an easy one prior to the tournament - sure Sweden, South Korea and Mexico are creditable sides with some genuine quality in their squads, but Germany were expected to qualify as undeniable winners, with the other three fighting for second place. Maybe we thought at the push of a button we could shift gears, but we lost against Mexico.

'At this tournament we didn't deserve to win again or move to the round of 16.

Germany, who won the tournment with some breath-taking displays in 2014, kicked off their Russian Federation campaign by losing 1-0 to Mexico.

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who was at fault for Korea's second goal after coming out of his goal and playing in midfield - where he lost possession - insists he has no plans to retire from worldwide football.

"The last game we delivered a good performance was in the autumn of 2017".

Germany had made it to the quarterfinals at the past nine World Cups, and reached at least to the semifinals at every tournament since 2002.

Mexico fans celebrated in the stands when hearing that South Korea had scored against Germany.

Defending champion Germany has been eliminated in the group stage of the World Cup in a 2-0 stoppage-time loss to South Korea and Sweden has topped Group F with a 3-0 win over Mexico.

"I've always tried to take responsibility, always tried to take the team".

Hummels, who played in his country's 1-0 opening loss to Mexico but missed the last-gasp victory over Sweden with a neck injury, was not prepared to accept all the blame for Germany's failure to beat the Koreans, though.

"We decided in the DFB executive committee before the World Cup to offer a contract extension", DFB boss Reinhard Grindel told Frankfurt-based newspaper FAZ.
