But a 2-0 defeat to South Korea in the third group game sealed their fate and sees them heading home early. The 2018 World Cup surely has plenty more exciting and dramatic moments to share with us in the days to come, but here are the most memorable incidents from the group stage.

The FIFA World Cup is the one tournament that is watched by millions if not billions throughout the month of arguably the biggest sporting event of the calendar.

One of them is likely to make it all the way to the last four or further with Spain, winners in 2010, and England, winners in 1966, as the only established forces in that half of the draw. He also managed the Super Eagles and took them to the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations in 2008, their worst outing in eight years.

Sweden coach Andersson slams Germany for 'unsportsmanlike behaviour'
England and Belgium face off in their final Group G encounter on Thursday, with an eye on who they will play in the knockout. Low was a prisoner of his own success as he kept faith in a set of players who have done the job for him over the years.

Anyway, you'd think that their fearless performance would get them some love from their native fans back home, but once they arrived back at the airport in South Korea they were pelted with eggs and (bizarrely enough) Union Jack cushions at a photocall.

Croatia were a cut above the rest in Group D, winning three out of three at a World Cup for the first time to top a potentially tricky looking pool easily.

The 4-time champions needed to beat the unfancied Asians by two clear goals in their final group F match in Kazan to advance to the last 16.

There is a general feeling Brazil are yet to get out of first gear despite the fact they topped their group with seven points. "We've not won a knockout game since 2006", he said. "In the second round everybody would have liked to play against us. We have to take responsibility". In the upper corner of the photo was the score from the match that ended Brazil's hopes of winning the World Cup on home soil in spectacular fashion: 7-1.

Jenny Cheng/Business InsiderThe World Cup bracket is officially set, and Belgium looks to have a harder path to the final despite its win. 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.
