Germany's resume comes down to a few key points: beer, design, soccer. It's time that Germany says goodbye to one of their defining factors after coming out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup at the bottom of their group after a humiliating loss to South Korea, and now won't go through to the knockout round.
Winning the World Cup in 2014 and wiping the floor with a final 7:1 score against Brazil, Germany was a favourite to win the Russian World Cup. The keyword here is 'were', as the South Koreans dominated the game and ultimately have allowed Sweden and Mexico to advance to round 16.
Mexicans around the world rejoice and are praising the South Koreans in the form of jokes and memes.

Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans no longer always win. Previous version is confined to history.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) June 27, 2018
