Tottenham Hotspur’s Heung Min Son scored the goal which dramatically sent holders Germany crashing out of the World Cup at the group stage for the first time since 1938.

With Manuel Neuer out of his goal as he tried to desperately score a last gasp equaliser, South Korea broke and Son latched onto a long ball up-field to slot the ball into an empty net to secure a 2-0 win, which coupled with Sweden’s 3-0 victory over Mexico, dumped Germany out of the tournament.

The result means Sweden and Mexico progress from group F to the knockout stages, while Germany finish rock bottom.

With the scores level going into extra-time, Germany needed to a goal to ensure their progression to the next round but they were dealt a sucker punch as South Korea took an unlikely lead deep into second half stoppage time courtesy of VAR.

Kim Young-gwon's effort was initially ruled out for offside as he bundled the ball home at the far past, but after initially waving away the protests, VAR intervened and referee Mark Geiger dramatically awarded the goal with seconds remaining.

Joachim Low’s men then threw caution to the wind as they tried to salvage their unlikely hopes of remaining in the tournament, but Son tapped home into an empty net to score South Korea’s second, leading to wild celebrations on the pitch.
