Joachim Low's side eliminated in Russian Federation with worst campaign since 1938

Time to fill in the World Cup knockout-stage blanks

Plattenhardt plays for Hertha Berlin in his home country, and was winning his seventh cap and making his first World Cup appearance, but that was all the action he was going to see, as he was substituted in the 79th minute and did not play another match for the first team. It wasn't my impression when I spoke to the team before that they were under pressure before the match because the Sweden game was on at the same time.

With a rest day ahead of the last-16 clashes, we've rated and slated every team based on their group-stage performances.

The defending champions were sent packing after just one win from their three Group E games, as Sweden and Mexico qualifying for the knockout stages instead.

Italy had won back-to-back World Cups before the Second World War got in the way, and much had changed by the time the 1950 tournament came around in Brazil.

But despite beating Germany 2-0, knocking them out of the competition, South Korea's team were instead pelted with eggs as they posed for pictures on their arrival.

But his first goal of the tournament against Nigeria set the tone for a memorable Argentina win, and the five-time Ballon d'Or will be looking to score his first knockout-stage goal ever when Argentina take on France.

They lost their opening match to Mexico before a last-gasp victor against Sweden kept their hopes alive.

He had hoped to move beyond the more typical surroundings of the stadium, hotel and airport to take in more of what the city has to offer during the World Cup - although the sheer volume of fans has forced him to reassess his plans.

The 29-year-old has been regularly criticised for failing to produce consistent displays for the north London side.

In stark contrast, the paper had used the same headline in 2014, alongside a photo of an elated Kroos, when Germany beat Brazil 7-1 in the World Cup semi-final.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Germany were defeated by South Korea in their last group game.

A rich seam of talent all appearing to peak at the same time makes Belgium genuine contenders, although the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard were knocked out of the European Championships by Wales two years ago.

They did just that by overcoming Senegal 1-0, and the coupling of that result with Poland's 1-0 triumph over Japan meant Aliou Cisse's side were eliminated on fair play rules.
