Toni Kroos left feeling sad and angry after "black day"

Swede Durmaz subjected to race hate storm after Germany loss

The matchups: South Korea vs. Germany and Sweden vs. Mexico.

The jinx of the World Cup Champions continues.

Germany, the winners of the last World Cup in 2014, opened up their campaign in Russian Federation with a narrow 1-0 defeat to Mexico.

South Korea waited 16 years to get its World Cup revenge on Germany, and while the Asian nation's 2-0 win over the defending champions was astonishing, the real surprise was the reaction of Mexico fans.

Toni Kroos avoided passing to one of his own team-mates during Germany's miserable World Cup campaign because he "did not trust him", according to reports.

Another interesting stat is that France won in 1998 but were knocked out in 2002 in the group stages.

Sweden will progress if they better Germany's result.

Groups of Mexicans were still chanting "Korea, Korea", as they left the arena.

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.

Having beaten Germany and Korea in their first two games, Mexico's 3-0 loss to Sweden yesterday (27 June) meant that South Korea had to beat Germany if Mexico were to advance to the next stage of the tournament.

A questionable celebration by German players near the Swedish bench added to the disappointment.

Fellow supporter Denis, who traveled nearly 3,000km (1,864 miles) from his home in Stuttgart to watch Germany take on South Korea in Kazan, was equally resigned.

"We lost but we're in the next round", Alcocer said, "So, we're very happy". Let us know in the comments section below.

Aeromexico offered a 20% discount on flights to South Korea, tweeting an image of a plane with doctored "AeroCorea" livery and the slogan, "We love you Korea!" Germany, one of the pre-tournament favorites, was out.

The German coach said all other players are available, including playmaker Mesut Ozil and midfielder Sami Khedira, who were dropped from the starting lineup against Sweden.
