Ozil In Verbal Spat With Angry Fans As Germany Exit WC

Mesut Ozil: Germany boss Joachim Low issues update on Arsenal star | Daily Star

FIFA has fined two German football federation officials for provoking Sweden's bench while celebrating victory in a World Cup game.

With the clock ticking down at Yekaterinburg Arena and the scoreboard at 3-0, it appeared Mexico were about to be sent unceremoniously home from Russian Federation. Mexico fans have since erupted into sheer elation online, tweeting out nothing but love and praise for South Korea.

And Boateng, who missed the game as a result of his sending off against Sweden, has written an apology to Germany fans for their "disaster" and promising analysis into what went wrong would follow.

European champions Portugal, however, finished second in their section to set up a clash with Uruguay in the last 16.

"I think the problem is the famous fifth match", he said, adding that Mexico felt more comfortable as underdogs.

Supporters of rival teams watched in amazement yesterday as the usually-all-conquering team crashed out of the competition with a 2-0 loss to South Korea. My expectations were so high.

He said: "It wasn't only Ozil, a number of other players didn't perform as they normally would".

Many fans joked that while Ronaldo might be carrying the Portugal team and Messi the Argentine side, the only thing carrying the German team now is a Lufthansa plane home.

Referee Nestor Pitana of Argentina took a look at a video replay when the ball hit Mexico striker Javier Hernandez on the arm in the box. "Luckily the Koreans did us a favour", said Alan Gonzalez, 29, a lawyer.

Later, in Group E play, Brazil defeated Serbia 2-0 to advance to the last-16, while Switzerland also moved on after a 2-2 draw with Costa Rica.

Besides Germany this year, France in 2002, Italy in 2010 and Spain in 2014 were the previous defending champions to get eliminated in the group stage.

Mexicans were left praying for their good luck to continue.

It was also further evidence - coupled with a 1-0 victory over reigning world champions Germany - that Mexico can erase the pain of recent history.
