Son has been in action for South Korea at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer, and helped his side pick up their only win of the competition with a 2-0 victory over Germany on Wednesday.

Germany have failed to qualify from the group stages at a World Cup finals for the first time since 1938.

The defeat, coupled with Sweden's win over Mexico, ensured Germany failed to emerge from the group stage for the first time.

Germany qualified for Russian Federation with a ideal record of ten wins and as Mats Hummels admitted after defeat to South Korea, the last time the team played well together was late 2017. "We were really disappointed, that's why a lot of us cried".

In fact, only Brazil of the past five winners have managed to extend their defence of the title past the group stage with 1998 winners France falling at the first hurdle in 2002.

"We believe there will be a transition that will take place after the World Cup, regardless of the outcome of the tournament, and no one is better equipped to handle that than Jogi Loew".

"We congratulate Sweden and Mexico on going through and South Korea on yesterday's win", the message continued. It was a stunning result, both for the team that had come to Russian Federation as the world's No. 1 and for South Korea, which wasn't listed in the top 50 when this tournament began. Originally called out for offside, the goal was then given after video review. We had our chances and kept on playing all the time but it just didn't work.

"It's a dark day for German football", Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer said. Germany now needs to beat South Korea by at least two goals to be guaranteed a spot in the last 16.

A long punt upfield saw Tottenham forward Son Heung-min chase a clearance to fire into an empty net and Korea hung on for a famous win that will be a consolation for their own elimination.

In a desperate search for inspiration, Low sent on Mario Gomez and Thomas Muller for Khedira and Goretzka, but it was Werner who passed up another opportunity when he scuffed his effort harmlessly wide after Ozil's 64th-minute corner had been allowed to reach him beyond the far post. Suele made his first World Cup appearance as a replacement for Jerome Boateng.

The normally rock solid Neuer spilled a free kick in the first half but his counterpart, Jo Hyeon-woo, didn't put a foot wrong.

Meanwhile in Yekaterinburg, Sweden dominated Mexico 3-0 to move on to the World Cup knockout round.
