Mexico fans celebrate South Korea's victory over Germany with impromptu parades

Mexico vs Sweden and South Korea vs Germany will start at 7.30 pm IST while Serbia vs Brazil and Switzerland vs Costa Rica will start at 11.30 pm IST on Wednesday.

The 2014 champions suffered the heartbreak of first round elimination at the World Cup finals for the first time since 1938 in the process.

But any momentum gained from that stunning comeback was well and truly destroyed when Germany lost 2-0 to South Korea, to two injury-time goals, and failed to qualify for the last 16 for the first time in 80 years. They will come back.

Hundreds of happy Mexicans subsequently mobbed the Korean embassy waving flags and chanting. Clearly we expected the World Cup to be another long tournament for us and the only thing I can say is that after three games we weren't able to play our best at any stage.

Ludwig Augustinsson put the Swedes ahead five minutes into the second half before Marcus Berg won a penalty and Sweden captain Andreas Granqvist, who scored the victor from the spot against South Korea, stepped up to take it.

"Actually not everything has gone as planned in this group for us", Shin said. In 2006, Germany hosted the big tournament but the winners were Italy.

"We will decide tomorrow who is the most stable psychologically, feeling the least pressure, and he will wear the captain's armband".

"There was nothing and therefore if we don't deserve it, we shouldn't make it to the next round", he said, adding that it was right for Sweden and Mexico to progress to the knockout stages.

Having apparently rescued their tournament with a last-gasp victor against Sweden in their second match, Low was convinced they would go on to beat the winless South Koreans and qualify.
