Mexico fans laud South Korea for sealing team's place in last 16

Fortunately for Mexico, the reigning World Cup champions suffered a stunning 2-0 loss to South Korea.

What you're watching is a group of Mexican supporters celebrating South Korea's win over Germany in the FIFA World Cup.

Germany, the reigning World Cup victor and a popular pick to win the tournament again this year, has been knocked out of the World Cup group stage, an utterly shocking development.

Some fans even flocked to the South Korean embassy in Mexico City to celebrate, chanting that Koreans are "our brothers". But they found new life when South Korea managed two late goals to upset defending champion Germany the same day.

"It's a psychological thing and the players still don't know how the play with the burden of being winners".

"The Mannschaft did not demonstrate what it can usually do", he said at Frankfurt airport as the humiliated team arrived home after finishing at the bottom of the table in the group stages.

"We had enough chances to score", he added.

"He's one of the best players in the world, and I am more than convinced we'll see him in this tournament again".

They and Mexico, who were ragged throughout, will next play whichever two teams emerge out of Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia in Group E, which concludes later on Wednesday.

"We really had the feeling that our team wanted to move ahead and qualify for the knockout stages".

Andersson said he refused to take any pleasure in the demise of the Germans whom he had accused of distasteful celebrations when they beat Sweden. "We are very grateful", said Pablo Gonzalez, 45. I take responsibility for that and stand up for that, but I thought it was a good team.

Not once did he try to open up the space in central midfield or try to open up the opposition defence with a simple run or dribble.
