The defeat from Mexico became a loud sensation. In the draw “Mannshafta” and the team Osorio could still be believed. But the fact that Germany will lose to Mexico? This was hoped only by dedicated fans of “tricolor”.
Mexico dumbfounded Germany with a terrific game in the first half. In the second half of the match, the world champions took control of the situation. However, the Germans failed to correct the mistakes of the starting 45-minute. Germany for the first time since 1982 lost the debut duel at mundiale. However, then to leave the group “Mannschaft” this did not stop. Germany in the second round defeated Chile – 4: 1, and in the third meeting they beat Austria – 1: 0. As a result, the Germans reached the final, in which they lost to Italy – 1: 3. Never in the history of the World Championships Germany did not fly in the group round.
The victory of Sweden over South Korea was not so bright as the triumph of Mexico in a duel with Germany. But the “blue and yellow” victory was won, and on the case. Having created some amazing moments, Sweden scored the decisive ball from the penalty spot, which the judge set after watching the video replay.
