Former Germany coach Berti Vogts has delivered a scathing assessment of his country's performance at the World Cup, suggesting that numerous players don't deserve to play for the national team.

Back then, there wasn't actually a group stage and instead, a straight knockout tournament was held, where the Germans lost to Switzerland in a replay after they had drawn their initial encounter. The 2014 champions have been sent packing from the World Cup after finishing bottom of group F.

Germany have only once failed to progress from the first round of the World Cup, and that occurred 80 years ago in the 1938 tournament in France.

Nervous Germany increased the pressure after the break and poured forward but despite a one-sided second half they could not find the back of the net before South Korea's last-gasp double.

I'm sure even those on the pitch would admit that.

He added: "We want to accomplish the impossible".

Switzerland are second in Group E with four points and are set to face Costa Rica in their last group game on Wednesday. They also have complained that Brych showed four Serbia players yellow cards but only one Swiss player was booked.

"We didn't deserve to win the title again, we didn't deserve to get into the last 16".

Despite the loss, and because of South Korea's win over Germany, Mexico also advances as runners-up in the group. Sweden and Mexico finished top and second to qualify for the World Cup round of 16.

Their own defence was exposed on the counter-attack, however, and it finally buckled in the third minute of stoppage time when a corner fell to an unmarked Kim who poked the ball home from close range.

But what about our "superstar" Mesut Ozil, who was also involved in controversy in Germany about the being snapped with the Turkish leader before the competition, but he started in the first game which ended with the Champions being beaten by Mexico, and he was subsequently dropped for the match against Sweden.

The Koreans, who had no idea of the score in the other match, rejoiced as if having won the tournament, while 11 German players hoped the ground would swallow them.

Marcello Lippi, the World Cup-winning coach from 2006, took responsibility for the disappointing performance in South Africa and admitted he hadn't prepared his team well enough.
