When was Germany eliminated in the World Cup group stage?

The German national team botched the start of the World Cup in Qatar. On Tuesday afternoon, the four-time world champion lost 2-1 to Japan despite a temporary lead. After the opening defeat, the team of national coach Hansi Flick is threatened with an early World Cup exit, especially since one of the World Cup favorites is waiting in the next group game with Spain. For the DFB selection it would not be the first out in the World Cup group phase.

In Qatar, Germany will be at the start of a World Cup for the 20th time. Only once has the DFB team not survived the group phase. Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer went to the 2018 World Cup in Russia

In the second group game against Sweden, the defending champions won 2-1 thanks to a last-minute goal from Toni Kroos and thus had progression in their own hands again. From a German point of view, it should remain the only highlight at the World Cup in Russia. At the end of the group stage, Germany put in a disappointing performance and lost 2-0 to South Korea. While Mexico and Sweden (six points each) made it through to the round of 16, Germany was only bottom of the group behind South Korea due to the lost direct comparison and had to pack its bags for the first time in history after a World Cup preliminary round.
