Korea 'won't be drunk with success' after beating Germany

Korea 'won't be drunk with success' after beating Germany

On paper, it's easy for fans to try and work out how the games might play out and which teams should qualify from each group, but once the players take to the pitch, anything can happen.

That result means a tricky tie against Spain, who needed a stoppage-time equaliser from Iago Aspas to avoid defeat against Morocco.

Uruguay, though, are the only team not to have conceded a goal.

ESPN Stats & Info noted that the left side of the bracket shares within it 10 World Cup titles and 16 appearances in the final, compared with just two titles and three appearances among the other eight teams.

Croatia, semi-finalists in 1998 and outstanding so far in Russian Federation, face Denmark while Colombia, who topped their own Group H, play England.

Key battle: While not a direct match-up, there is no doubting midfielders Luka Modric and Christian Eriksen are the key men in this one.

Ozil has been quiet after their humiliating defeat to South Korea which saw them get knocked out from the competition, he has however told his followers via Twitter his disappointment about their departure from the competition.

The 29-year-old has been regularly criticised for failing to produce consistent displays for the north London side.




Amid rows over the poisoning in March of a former Russian spy in England, which briefly raised talk of the team boycotting the tournament, the British government said it would not send official representatives to the World Cup.

Japan squeaked into the knockout rounds in the strangest of circumstances, Senegal missing out on the last 16 due to their inferior fair play record.

Spain and Russian Federation played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in a friendly last November, while their last competitive meeting came at the Euro 2008 semi-finals, where the Spaniards ran out 3-0 winners.

Low added: "How do we go from here?" Sweden topped the group, and Italy went home.

Group E: Brazil (7 points), Switzerland (5), Serbia (3), Costa Rica (1).

The Asian side needed to beat Germany by more than two goals to stand a chance of qualifying from Group F as runners up and hope Mexico beat Sweden but their already slim hopes ended when the Scandinavians raced into a 3-0 lead in the second half. They were close to the wire against Sweden and they have not been able to break Korea down.

Ultimately, though, the prospect of meeting Germany in the quarter-finals is no more.
