Joachim Low will remain Germany coach despite disappointing result

Sweden and Germany confrontation

"There was no game where we could you say we played the style we used to play and we expect to play".

Longer-term, I would be wary of being too cocky where German football is concerned.

Suffice to say that things deteriorated quickly in terms of worldwide relations after that result. I'm sure even those on the pitch would admit that.

Being a defending champion at the World Cup has proven to be a tough challenge in recent years.

Team manager Oliver Bierhoff said he assumed that Loew, who led Germany to their triumph in Brazil four years ago, would remain in his position.

But there would be precious few chances - and even less goodwill - after Panama's tactics cost them in the eighth minute. Panama , which offered little resistance, is leaving the tournament early after being eliminated along with Tunisia.

Dr Ottorino Barassi, one of FIFA's Vice Presidents, took ownership of the trophy on behalf of the governing body during the conflict by stealing it from a bank vault.

This was the first time since 1938 that Germany was knocked out in the group stage. "The players, the entire team, the technical officials, we wanted to do everything to give our players the chance to succeed on the pitch".

However, nothing went right for Les Bleus as they went home with their tails between their legs having failed to score a goal never mind win a game.

It was a dramatic turnaround in fortunes for the team widely tipped to challenge for the title, following their triumph in Brazil four years ago and Confederations Cup win in Russian Federation last year with largely a second-string team.

Germany ended up last in Group F while Sweden and Mexico advanced to the round of 16. Sweden, powered by their own terrific performance, and Mexico, powered by South Korea, were through.

The vote passed 319 to 303 after would-be Tory rebels were given assurances they would have a meaningful say . Other rebels have also reportedly, "called off the revolt", including former cabinet minister Nicky Morgan.

They lost their opening game 1-0 to Mexico and needed Toni Kroos's dramatic late free-kick to beat Sweden 2-1.

Joachim Low is set for showdown talks with German FA chief Reinhard Grindel about his future as Germany coach following the group-stage exit from the World Cup. We have to be disappointed in ourselves after such a tournament.

Despite the disappointing loss, Germany does have a team to build around. South Korea switched 4-1-4-1 when defending, but the skillful Mexicans knew how to exploit open space and dominate the midfield.

The result saw Germany eliminated from the tournament, and El Tri, as Mexico's team is called, progress to the next stage of the World Cup in extraordinary circumstances. Mexico has been to the round of 16 for seven straight World Cups.
