What a shocker! Germany, highly-favored to win it all again this year, only needed to win over South Korea to advance to the knockout round. But they could not do it. The talent-laden team conceded two late goals to the South Koreans and crashed to a humiliating defeat.

Nobody expected the Germans to be knocked out. Everybody was talking about Argentina getting eliminated early after dismal performances in their first two matches. But Lionel Messi and his team escaped elimination by beating Nigeria on Tuesday.
