Upsets at FIFA World Cup 2018

Germany | Publish Date: 7/9/2018 12:56:28 AM IST
A “shocked” Germany became the third straight reigning champion to be knocked out in the group stage at the World Cup - following Italy and Spain - after losing 2-0 to South Korea in Group F.
In an embarrassingly poor performance Germany went behind in the game’s closing stages when Kim Young-gwon scored following a video review, with Son Heung-min then breaking away - German keeper Manuel Neuer was by this stage in the South Korean half - to add the second.
Spain: The 2010 world champions, Spain crashed out in the knock out stage after going down to hosts Russia 3-4 on penalties. 
Brazil: Belgium ended Brazil’s dream of a sixth World Cup title when they beat the South Americans 2-1 in a dramatic, enthralling end-to-end quarter-final.
Argentina: Lionel Messi’s dream of winning the World Cup came to an end after France sent Argentina crashing out of the tournament in a seven-goal thriller in Kazan.
The 4-3 defeat also saw Messi failed to score in another World Cup knockout game, taking his staggering total to eight appearances where he’s failed to find the back of the net beyond the group stage.
Portugal: Portugal’s dream of winning a first ever World Cup came to an end after an Edinson Cavani-inspired Uruguay beat them 2-1 in the last 16.
