Germans started adjusting to a new world on Thursday, brushing off any notion that a shock humiliation in the soccer World Cup, which coincides with a rare moment of political instability, was symptomatic of national decline.

"I think honestly Loew must resign immediately, he needs to give it up", Mueller said.

Currently, Mexico are leading Group F with two wins, while Sweden and Germany are both struggling with one win and one loss, and South Korea are at the bottom.

Germany went 1-0-2 in the Tournament with their only win coming against Sweden when Toni Kroos scroed the game victor deep into added time.

Mexico's only hope was Germany, the defending champion, didn't win.

"But this not the time for this, we have to analyse things, why it did not work, but I assume he will continue".

"We usually play with three at the back and an anchor man who is very good in the air", he said. Germany are reigning World Cup Champions, having claimed the title in 2014 in Brazil while beating Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals.

The sight of Mexico pouring through a porous German midfield during the first half of the defeat in the opener against Mexico was the clearest example. We didn't succeed in our penetration in the last third.

It was Cheryshev's third goal of the World Cup, putting him tied with Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the scoring chart. Egypt's talisman Mohamed Salah then converted a penalty after being fouled himself, but it was only a consolation.

"I'm so incredibly proud, nearly moved as the thought of how we performed on the pitch, so disciplined".

"After the Mexico match we had a long chat.He's very open to comments and highly self-critical".

"We had plenty of opportunities, we broke our necks trying out there today", he added.

The FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russian Federation.

He also revealed that Bayern Munich's Sebastian Rudy will not play in the decisive match against South Korea on Wednesday after breaking his nose in previous match.

A 93rd minute own goal by the unfortunate Yann Somer from a Bryan Ruiz penalty gave the central American side a deserved 2-2 draw on a night of late drama.

Each with one match to go, all of the four teams have a theoretical chance to reach the knockout stage but also are not without the possibility to be eliminated.
