this is. the unthinkable has happened at soccer's world cup the reigning champions germany have been knocked out of the germany supporters around the country and around the world are heartbroken tonight to the bitter end and in the last dying minutes they expected. to deliver in advance to the next day but it just wasn't meant to be germany losing to south korea in a win or go home game and now they are going home after the first stage of the tournament germany's worst world cup performance in eighty years as.
good to have you with us we start with a world cup shock here in germany the national team reigning world champions have been knocked out of the world cup tournament it is a devastating outcome for a soccer crazy nation now i'll be doing a post-mortem on germany's loss to south korea with our sports team in just a moment to put today's loss in a historical context the last time that team germany with out of the world cup tournament this early was in one thousand nine hundred thirty eight we have this report now on germany's ninety nine minutes of agony on the pitch. midway through the first off it became key it was not to be germany's often and even kept mumbling noise nervous it's
a start of the second half of the german side managed to moan some pressure on the south korean goal but failed to capitalise on the chances time and time again novice at sabbat and novus in front of the opponent's goal. is a dying minutes of the game jenny's afternoon became even worse. human form kim suppressed an inept defense to put south korea as. much as it did launch of his incredulous teammates i and it's a six minute all stoppage time human son added to the misery of the german side that already stopped believing and so would cup campaign. i don't think somebody saw going to the sixty fifth minute we started to get really hectic we lost all attempt to get set up would he came in while you take a little misplaced passes did run into some incredible counter text which i hope i can say we still defended well but somehow we lost almost truck so this is
a very big moment for us and all of germany france very very very bit to even in. the time to hold us humiliated to crash out of the cup it's lost in group f. . you know the help of dissect this crash now i'm joined here at the big table by a pub a. us and really round shots from our sports team well i mean i wish we were saying hello under different circumstances i think i speak for a lot of people tonight i know that you thought that team germany had. mojo after their win against sweet that's right i mean they look like a kind of or a new team to a degree but let's not forget that for the majority of that match against sweden they really did struggle so in many ways yes they had found a but then it was sort of that touchy we'll say and there's many elements that came against sweden at the end the day of course germany beat them two one but it was
the very last minute that they actually beat them and i don't have time they're actually facing an early exit which now is happens but they're facing an early exit because sweden actually went ahead because of a mistake by tony cross who end and went on to actually you know scored that last minute winner but there were many issues in the team unity it looked like it was a team that sort of lacked drive. they looked a little bit. a little bit lazy at times and it looked like they didn't really want to win it really there's been lots of questions about this team compared to the team in two thousand and fourteen and we actually even heard someone say today that the last good performance that we saw from this team was at the end of two thousand and seventeen i mean was this was it would be almost condemned from the start but i think one of the key factors in them crashing out so early was their mentality they didn't look like they were on the pitch to win these games it didn't look like like they had much to fight for from the first game onwards against mexico already they looked complacent they looked as if the fact that their reigning world champions
would carry them all the way through to the final which is not how football works but he obviously they weren't told that obviously the they couldn't have thought they i mean do you really think that they had that mind game you know taking place that they could sit on their laurels from twenty four g. well it can happen and i mean you know in many respects it's not that uncommon to see something like this happen spain crushed i mean twenty air and twenty fourteen of course after they'd won in two thousand and ten italy crushed them two thousand and ten after they'd won in twenty two there isn't a curse of being a curse and i didn't go in a little bit kind of big for your boots you know and they went in and like i said before they got to hold it lazy they they kind of had a lot of issues in the team how much of this can we trace back to the coach well at the end of the day there's always a players who are on the field and who have to put in the performance but there are some decisions that you know him to can make to help his team and it doesn't look like he really supported his team in this there were some controversial dishes and decisions from before the world cup already like which players he ended up taking he left at home
a promising young talent the roy sunday which many heavily criticized he left at home the the goal scorer of two thousand and fourteen of the final. he basically brought them the title with his goal get a goal in the last minute of the final against argentina so there's some controversy about that for sure do you think the loss really puts the final nail in the coffin for the error of. terms of german so i'm not sure whether i would say it's a nail in the coffin really i think it's time for him to step down yes i think it's time for something new in germany but we can't forget that he did make them world champion i mean under you know he moved right germany experienced a very very big guy so i think now is just a time for something new but will you watch the other games i did indeed i was in i was in an odd situation where i had to watch both games at once and i was sort of watching i was watching mexico and sweden of course mexico let's not forget the chairman and sweden were incredibly hungry for this they went out there they really wanted to win and they ended up you know were performing incredibly well as were
they are they are they that much better than germany do you think or is it the determination to win that is partly what you do in the pitch as in physically but a lot of what football has to do is what's going to appear on how you you know act it there and whether you're hungry for it and whether you're as a team work together obviously germany has a fantastic is a plethora of amazing players so you can say that it's that they don't have the talent there the problem is how do you bring those people together how do you drive them how do you make sure that they when they're out there they work together they can understand each other they can read each other and it looked today particular with that match between mexico and sweden that sweden really had all the elements there and that's why they deserved three you know when you will he said you know nonetheless either way you look at it for the for team germany tonight. thank you very much thank you you know the disappointment is clearly being felt among germany supporters we went to the fan mile here in berlin to get their reactions take
a look. i meant effect misunderstood just wasn't signed we had our chances we had the shots on goal but the german team had to press forward and that was when south korea landed the shots and we didn't get a chance in the last minutes of a time so it was just bad luck if your time and i'm missing the. i think the last performance is really awesome against. butts i was a little disappointed today however i still stand behind germany america still stand behind germany we love you guys. disappointment. but you don't really stand we had such high hopes especially here in the fan zone with the mood was so good we hope to get in like the last game in the last second it was disappointing. all right joining me now for more on germany's shocking exit from the world company is our sports correspondent alina we're talking only you were right inside that hand while today
you survived did you call your mother and tell her that she survived yet i still have to call zero but obviously i made it out alive why did you do that and how did the fans how did they take this loss ok initially obviously disbelief a lot it was like a long moment of silence and a lot of fans happy ahead sit down and a lot of them also in stoppage time when germany didn't have that a lot of them will hope and feel like a moment of magic to happen again and like right inside the fan mile in or does it in stoppage time you have a lot of fans who basically even have this house on top ready to record another magical moment it didn't happen i mean it did happen but it was tough korea that scored ed but i also have to say note here we do see france crying and initially that was the case but i have to say brant at the end we had a lot of smiling hands once it sank in and there's more of it i think it's also because you know this time in twenty fourteen they won the world cup and if they
have one it again this time around it would have been almost like a bonus i think people are always talking about like the players beings are motivated or they didn't quite have the motivation this time they went really hungry enough some of these fans i have to say also went that hungry and a lot of them have recently saying look four years from now we'll be back and you think that's really is the psychology here that is i mean that's really most important on the pitch today that if you've tasted victory once then the hunger for a second time may not be as strong yes. no but then for example if we look at the temp incident and we look at real madrid you know like three in a row i mean those guys continued being hungry i think there are a lot of reasons this time around why it didn't happen for germany but at halftime when i was talking to a lot of these fans i mean a lot of them was three you confident they were going to turn this around in the second half it's germany they always take a bit of time to get the game going it didn't happen it didn't happen and if you
look at the last three propriety performances let's be honest let's be objective jada's it was not about performance where they were bad references they were towing the fee but you just talk about the impact that it's had on society today i mean i when i was driving into the office this afternoon it was during the game and it was palpable there was a quiet on the streets and i knew right then things are not going to be well when i think well and did you sense that too i mean can you can almost feel in the air was it almost tangible oh yeah yeah and certainly from the get go there was a nervousness even like inside the the crowd and you sensed that and i think i remember even saying that when i did the frist life hit is that south korea in one way they have nothing to lose that nothing in a way to pay for but they did want to go and south korea policy do want to go back home at least with a point with the goal of conservation when they got it but if you can't win against south korea you probably don't deserve to be death good and if you look rusty. it's
been saying that the man talking is always good to have you have the big day but thank you. are here's some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world in the united states supreme court justice anthony kennedy says that he plans to retire after three decades on the board the eighty one year old is a conservative but has often sided with liberal justices on issues such as abortion rights the move gives president donald trump a chance to cement conservative control of the high court when he nominates yet another. nominee. a rescue ship stranded for days in the mediterranean carrying more than two hundred migrants has arrived in malta the ship called lifeline is run by a german charity it's now been allowed to dock after a deal between a group of the u. states to share the migrants on board malta and italy had initially turned away the vessel the government in south sudan has agreed to
