Germany dumped out of World Cup courtesy of South Korea defeat

Germany have crashed out of the 2018 World Cup, with the nation exiting at the group stages of the competition for the first time in 80 years.

Sweden's 3-0 victory over Mexico, coupled with Germany's 2-0 defeat against South Korea, means Die Nationalmannschaft's hopes of defending their World Cup trophy have been extinguished before the knockout stage even begins.

Meanwhile, Mexico midfielder Jesus Gallardo picked up the fastest yellow card in the history of World Cup in his side's final group F match against Sweden on Wednesday.

Gallardo was booked after charging straight into the back of Swedish striker Ola Toivonen just 13 second into the match.

It was the quickest booking since cards were introduced at the 1970 edition of the tournament in Mexico.
