Champion's Curse - Germany knocked out

Germany has been knocked out of the World Cup in the group stages, carrying on the trend of what's been known as the dreaded 'Champion's Curse".

Young-Gwon Kim scored for South Korea in the 94th minute and a second goal by Heung-Min Son in the 96th minute gave the Asians a 2-0 win and as 3-0 win by Sweden meant Germany finished last in the group.

Sweden and Mexico will go through from Group F with Sweden on top, Mexico second and South Korea third.

In the last four tournaments, the Champions have been eliminated in the group stages three times.

Croatia whip Argentina 3-0, threatening 1st-round exit for Messi & company

Croatia is into the next round of the FIFA World Cup after a 3-0 win over Argentina.

Argentina is now third in the Group D standings with the same points as Iceland, which is making its World Cup debut, after tying Iceland in the first match.

To make matters worse, a win over Nigeria would leave Iceland three points ahead and with at least a four-goal advantage in the goal differential column.

Argentina needs some help at this point to make it out of the group stage.

A goal differential of minus-3 is all but a death knell. 

Cristiano Ronaldo hattrick earns Portugal a thrilling 3-3 draw with Spain

Cristiano Ronaldo netted a hat-trick for Portugal to deny Spain victory in a what was a six-goal World Cup classic in Sochi.

Spain fought to come from 1-0 and 2-1 down to lead 3-2 in the Group B clash.

However, Fernando Hierro’s men were pegged back right at the end when Ronaldo fired home a trademark 88th minute free-kick to equalise, his third goal of the game.

Diego Costa had scored twice for Spain before Real Madrid defender Nacho put them ahead with a spectacular long-range effort.
