South Koreans express pride, heartbreak after Germany win

SEOUL, South Korea — South Koreans are speaking of pride and heartbreak after watching their national soccer team knock off defending champions Germany in the biggest upset of this year's World Cup. But it was one that meant nothing to the winners.

The dense apartment complexes that shape capital Seoul shook with roars an hour after midnight on Thursday as South Korea scored two stoppage time goals to stun Germany 2-0 in what became their final match in Russia.

Many fans stayed up late watching even after it became certain the team would not qualify regardless of the outcome against Germany. South Korea needed to beat Germany and then for Mexico to defeat Sweden to have a chance at advancing from the group stage. But Sweden ended that hope with three unanswered goals that put Mexico out of reach.
