Low won't be sacked after early exit - German FA

After failing to fire in their opening match in Russian Federation, a 1-1 draw against Switzerland, Brazil appear to be finding their normal fluency with each match as they go in search of a sixth World Cup.

"We put ourselves in this situation after the Mexican game", he admitted.

"There was nothing and therefore if we don't deserve it, we shouldn't make it to the next round", he said, adding that it was right for Sweden and Mexico to progress to the knockout stages.

"We had it in our own hands, but we did not make it", Neuer, who confirmed his intention to remain available for global selection, said.

Defending Fifa World Cup champions Germany are eliminated at the group stage for the first time.

"We can take the pressure, we are a balanced team and for us, this is about getting stronger and growing", the Brazil boss said.

Nervous Germany increased the pressure after the break and poured forward but despite a one-sided second half they could not find the back of the net before South Korea's last-gasp double. It happened to other nations before. "We believe there will be a transition that will take place after the World Cup, regardless of the outcome of the tournament, and no one is better equipped to handle that than Jogi Low".

Coming off a 1998 triumph on home soil, Les Bleus were one of the favourites for the Japan/South Korea World Cup four years later.

At only No. 57 in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings, South Korea had to fight an uphill battle against defending champions Germany (No. 1), Latin American powerhouses Mexico (No. 15) and European dark horses Sweden (No. 24).

Loew brought on substitutes Mario Gomez and Thomas Mueller on either side of the 60-minute mark but his players kept giving the ball away, with most of their attacking combinations lacking precision and speed.

"We decided in the DFB executive committee before the World Cup to offer a contract extension", DFB boss Reinhard Grindel told Frankfurt-based newspaper FAZ.

The Azzurri picked up only two points from three group games after successive draws against Paraguay and New Zealand were followed by a surprise 3-2 loss to Slovakia. "The disappointment is deep inside me".

"I'm shocked. Shocked because we didn't manage to pull it off and beat Korea Republic and we lost this game".
