"We beat the world champions from the last World Cup and now I'm looking forward to the next World Cup". It was a stunning result, both for the team that had come to Russian Federation as the world's No. 1 and for South Korea, which wasn't listed in the top 50 when this tournament began.

Germany must win by two clear goals in Kazan on Wednesday to be sure of reaching the last 16.

Germany can guarantee progress with a win by two clear goals on Wednesday but all four teams can still qualify from Group F, even South Korea, who now have no points.

South Korea's goalkeeper Cho Hyeon-woo made a fine one-handed save from Leon Goretzka's header and Timo Werner volleyed wide from near the penalty shot.

Move over Hirving Lozano and Chicharito, Mexico fans now have a new have a new set of heroes at the World Cup after South Korea's late victory over Germany.

He added: "We believed in it until the very end, we tried to shoot, but we just couldn't get the ball in. It was the best thing, we just passed to the next round, and the World Cup champion is out". It was assumed that Germany would beat South Korea, and that Mexico would beat Sweden, but football is a amusing old game. That's when South Korea stepped up.

However, they have lost their last three games in the World Cup knockout stages (1 goal scored, 5 conceded). They have not faced each other since July 1972, when they drew 1-1 at Rio de Janeiro's Maracana stadium.

Outside the stadium in Russian Federation, a group of Mexican fans found a Korean in a pink shirt, holding a Sweden flag.

The Koreans needed to record a victory over the Germans and see Mexico defeat Sweden to realise their slim hopes of advancing to the knockout phase.

The person filming the video, Patrick Infurna, says "Only the World Cup could do this".
