Korea dump champions Germany out of the World Cup

Holders Germany were sensationally dumped out of the World Cup after a late VAR review set South Korea on the way to a 2-0 win in their Group F encounter.

Kim Young-gwon thought he had fired the Koreans ahead a minute into added time but the goal was initially disallowed for offside. However, after a VAR review showed Germany’s Toni Kroos got the last touch, the decision was overturned.

Tottenham striker Son Heung-min then rolled the ball into an empty net to turn the screw with German keeper Manuel Neuer stranded upfield to make it 2-0.

The defeat, coupled with Sweden’s win over Mexico, ensured Germany failed to emerge from the group stage for the first time.
