      Loew's job safe even if Germany exit SWC

Hundreds of Mexican soccer fans partied outside the South Korean Embassy in Mexico City on Wednesday to thank the Asian country for its victory over Germany that guaranteed the national team a spot in the knockout stage of the World Cup. "I hope that (Germans) will reflect on this and become aware that they live an absolute luxury".

A 0-0 draw would be fine, but if Germany scored, Mexico would be eliminated.

'We're all stunned - we're shocked, ' said Thomas Muller, the pillar of the 2014 team who seemed strangely unable to influence events this time.

Germany boss Joachim Low has admitted his shock at the reigning champions' World Cup exit after a stunning 2-0 defeat by South Korea.

Loew said that different from Sweden which stood rather deep, the South Koreans usually try to be involved with the ball from the midfield and they have two or three players who are very quick and can launch fast attacks there and "it would be our task to contain that".

If he goes, the 58-year-old's misguided loyalty in senior players like Muller, Hummels, Sami Khedira, Mesut Ozil, Toni Kroos and Jerome Boateng will have been a key factor in his downfall.




The sight of Mexico pouring through a porous German midfield during the first half of the defeat in the opener against Mexico was the clearest example.

The morning after the final day of group play in 2002, Bruce Arena, the US coach, was late to his daily press conference in Seoul and opened by apologizing, "I spent the morning shopping for Park Ji-Sung". "I wasn't happy with the way we defended but that's a learning curve for me".

"After the Mexico match we had a long chat.He's very open to comments and highly self-critical". "We believed until the end today".

The FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russian Federation.

Juan Carlos Osorio said he was "hurt" by his side's 3-0 World Cup loss to Group F winners Sweden, even though they also qualified. All they needed was one goal from South Korea to breathe easy.

Earlier Blerim Dzemaili had thumped home to give Switzerland the lead against the run of play against the team which finished bottom of Group E.
