  • Russia 2018 bursting with drama as World Cup records tumble

From chants of "goodbye" to stunned silence, Germany fans reacted with dismay to their defending champions' humiliating World Cup exit Wednesday (June 27) after a first-round loss commentators called a "historic disgrace".

"We really had the feeling that our team wanted to move ahead and qualify for the knockout stages".

The first match between the two teams ended 1-1, before the Swiss prevailed 4-2 in a replay and made the quarter-finals. Mexico have gone out at the last-16 stage at six successive World Cups, so this round may be as far as they can go in Russian Federation. The 2018 World Cup surely has plenty more exciting and dramatic moments to share with us in the days to come, but here are the most memorable incidents from the group stage. They made the quarter-finals in 2006, losing to France.

Loew and his men looked down in the dumps as they headed home from Vnukovo airport in Moscow on Thursday morning as Spain were installed as the new favourites for the tournamnet. Les Bleus did win Group C, yet they managed three goals.

Dan Mullan/Getty ImagesBelgium took a 1-0 victory over England to win Group G at the World Cup, but the win sets the Belgian side up for a much more hard path to the final. The 2010 champions conceded five goals in the round-robin stage and also let in three when they met Russian Federation in a friendly fixture in November 2017.

After winning so much, either with the national team or their clubs, the 2014 world champions lacked the hunger for victory that characterised their side in Brazil, where they routed the home nation 7-1 on their way to the title.




But the 20-year-old student was determined to look on the bright side.

The World Cup is very close among the 16 nations that have advanced to the second round and for the first time in our history, few would care to select a victor.

You can keep up with the schedule and all of the results of the World Cup as they happen here.

"It's a historic disgrace", Der Spiegel weekly said, decrying Germany's "weak game" against a plucky South Korea.

The Mexican midfielder now plays for La Liga side Real Betis as of 2017 after a move from Dutch football club PSV Eindhoven.
