South Korea Players Face Punishment For World Cup Exit

Iran nearly pulled off a major upset when, with a little help from VAR, they held Portugal to a 1-1 draw in their last game, while Spain needed a stoppage-time strike from Iago Aspas to avoid defeat against Morocco and win the group.

The German tactician is being criticised for failing to take Manchester City's in-form winger Leroy Sane to the World Cup.

Suspension rules out Switzerland defenders Fabian Schar and Stephan Lichtsteiner, while Sebastian Larsson misses out for Sweden in what is arguably the weakest of the last-16 ties despite Zlatan Ibrahimovic claiming his country will "probably" win the World Cup.

It's all in the name of banter after defending world champions Germany were humiliated as they were knocked out of the tournament at the first stage on Wednesday.

In Russia, the Germans got off to a awful start with a 1-0 loss to Mexico, and their campaign ended on an even more bitter note after a stoppage-time victor from Toni Kroos against Sweden gave the false impression they had finally kick-started their tournament. The Scandinavians used their physicality and brute strength - and some clinical finishing - to take down both Mexico and South Korea, while almost taking a point off Germany. After losing to Mexico, Toni Kroos secured a dramatic 2-1 win over Sweden with a late free-kick, and it looked like the wind was back in their sails.

Argentina nearly came a cropper but then Lionel Messi stepped in and scored one of the greatest goals you will ever see after effectively cutting manager Jorge Sampaoli out of the picture. How are we going to be unsafe to an opponent if we do not get our performance right?

"I like the concept of VAR, the concept that if something wrong happens, if a big mistake happens, the VAR is there to bring the truth to the game".

On paper, it's a battle of Luis Suarez vs. Cristiano Ronaldo, but in reality, this game will be determined by two teams who are much more comfortable while their opponent has the ball, preferring to counter at pace and take advantage of set piece opportunities.

With the group games complete, the serious business of the World Cup's knockout rounds start on Saturday with a pair of heavyweight clashes.

Former Germany boss Berti Vogts has claimed that numerous nation's squad "do not deserve to continue to play" for the world champions following their exit in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. "I want Jogi to continue". Maybe we invited the wrong players. Team Argentina was too dependent on Lionel Messi, who has not shown his best game yet. "I'm looking forward to seeing us play again". In any case, with a new generation of talented players at his disposal, he has what he needs to start rebuilding. Whatever they chose, Loew or the next German coach needs to focus on youth and keep giving chances to the likes of Nikas Suele, Timo Werner, Leon Goretzka and Julian Brandt, who will all gain some valuable experience from the Russian failure.

The best match was easily the 3-3 draw between the favourites; Spain came from behind twice before taking the lead through Nacho Fernandez's stunning strike, but Ronaldo rounded off a hat-trick with a sensational 88th-minute free-kick to share the points.
