Germany are out of the World Cup at the group stage. Germany have never been knocked out of the World Cup at the group stage before. Germany won the World Cup four years ago. South Korea scored TWICE in injury time - one offside call overturned by VAR - to confirm Joachim Löw and co's plane tickets home.
Normally, I'd try to arrange this in some kind of chronological order - to tell some kind of story. But everything exploded in about two minutes at the end, so this is going to reflect that.
Just don't mention the VAR. I did once, but I think I got away with it.— Daniel Storey (@danielstorey85) June 27, 2018

This lad, from exactly one week ago, looks very silly and should feel bad.

Oh, and Manuel Neuer decided to leave his goal and play in midfield after the first goal went in. Did I mention that?
Manuel Neuer, you mad, mad bastard!— Graham Ruthven (@grahamruthven) June 27, 2018
Neuer is so in his own head 😂— Scott Saunders (@_scottsaunders) June 27, 2018
