The unexpected World Cup scoring record

Adjust Comment Print

Germany, the reigning World Cup victor and a popular pick to win the tournament again this year, has been knocked out of the World Cup group stage, an utterly shocking development.

Football fans around the world continued their mockery of Germany today as their players prepared to fly home from the World Cup in Russian Federation.

With the clock ticking down at Yekaterinburg Arena and the scoreboard at 3-0, it appeared Mexico were about to be sent unceremoniously home from Russian Federation.

In the other game in the group, leaders Mexico keep an unchanged team from the side that defeated South Korea in the second match.

South Korea, on three, finished third, ahead of Germany on goal difference.

Then yesterday, the four-time winners were defeated in the most dramatic turn of events against South Korea, conceding two in stoppage time and rather embarrassingly finishing bottom of Group F on goal difference.

"I went from crying to laughing", said Cecilia Gonzalez, a 22-year-old student who was celebrating the outcome of the roller-coaster ride with tequila.

Astronomers predict that much of the world will be able to view the total eclipse except for the United States and Canada. At what time will you see the moon? Saturn is now at opposition , meaning it and the sun are at opposite sides of Earth.

The lone South Korean fan was tossed into the air, crowd surfed and was encircled by a crowd of absolutely bloody thrilled Mexicans. Many Mexicans also started listening to K-Pop, specifically BTS, in celebration.

Even fans of the Swedish team stopped off at the fiesta.

"Mexico really let me down". My expectations were so high.

"First of all I have to say that we qualified because we beat Germany and Korea", he told reporters in Yekaterinburg.

"End of the world (as we know it)", said the Guardian.

It was the first time Germany has been knocked out in the first round since 1938, though the team was not allowed to enter the 1950 tournament.
