Germany crashed out of the World Cup today after a stoppage-time VAR-assisted goal from Young-gwon Kim and a late second by Son Heungmin earned South Korea a famous 2-0 win.

The Germans needed to beat Korea by two clear goals in their final group F match at Kazan stadium to advance to the last 16.

But Joachim Loew's men wasted a series of chances in a tense match that saw a pale version of the world champions become the fourth holders of the title this century to be sent packing at the first hurdle.

Germany's team of superstars could only look on in shock in the final minutes of the match as US referee Mark Geiger called for the video assistant referee to intervene after the unmarked Kim had bundled his shot past Germany 'keeper Manuel Neuer from a corner early in stoppage time.

And Twitter wasn’t kind to the Germans who became the fourth team in the new millennium to fall prey to the ‘Champions Curse’.

And we were sure we will have some thing like this.

Okay, they had a history too.

South Korean goalie Cho Hyun-woo, who was the man of the match became a Twitter star after his valiant performance against the Germans.
