  • Sweden's supporters outside Fisht Stadium after the 2018 FIFA World Cup Group F football match between Germany and Sweden

Germany were up against an unheralded South Korea, meanwhile, Sweden were playing Mexico.

It's been a World Cup to forget for Mesut Ozil.

In the match played in Kazan, South Korea defeated Germany 2-0 and showed them the way out of the World Cup. If Germany defeats South Korea in Kazan and Sweden simultaneously tops Mexico, three teams would finish with six points, sending it to tiebreakers that start with the best goal differential. Germany's world cup hopes were over in the third and final group match when they suffered a humiliating 2-0 loss to the Korea Republic. "It seemed the players came onto the pitch looking exhausted, mentally, physically", German fan Jorg Roth told Reuters TV.

They also sang Mexican anthem Cielito Lindo and greeted Ambassador Kim Sang-il.

The president of the German Football Association (DFB) expects there to be changes in the squad after the tournament in Russian Federation but insists Loew, 58, will oversee the grooming of the next generation.

Their failure was celebrated widely in Russian Federation with fans and neutrals in the metro, Fifa Fan Fest and stadiums celebrating their inability to beat South Korea.

"Who cares we won't make it to the round of 16?"

He said: "Until quite recently, we have probably been the most consistent, in terms of performance, team in the past 10, 12 years".

Germany coach Joachim Loew said his players will be wary of the speed and pace of their opponents to avoid getting caught on the break.

Korea, grouped with Germany, Mexico and Sweden, failed to move on to the next stage despite its dramatic victory over Germany, due to its earlier losses to Sweden and Mexico.

Canada sets October start for legal recreational marijuana sales
The first country in the world to nationally legalize the growth, sale and consumption of marijuana was Uruguay in 2013. The Senate approved Bill C-45 (the Cannabis Act) on Tuesday, clearing the last major hurdle before becoming law.

Sweden beat Mexico 3-0 on Wednesday, meaning that a German win would have eliminated the Mexican side known as El Tri from the World Cup.
