Mesut Ozil clashes with Germany fans after loss

Mesut Ozil clashes with Germany fans following shock World Cup 2018 exit

Mesut Ozil clashed with furious Germany fans after his nation’s loss to South Korea at the World Cup.

Germany finished rock bottom of Group F and were eliminated following a devastating 2-0 defeat by South Korea on Wednesday afternoon.

The 2014 champions suffered the heartbreak of first round elimination at the World Cup finals for the first time since 1938 in the process.

Supporters in the stadium were left fuming with their side’s performance, as they failed to get past a Korean side that was billed as one of the worst at the World Cup finals.

Germany’s players were left distraught when the full-time whistle blew.

As they ambled off the pitch, fans close to the tunnel area vented their anger at the players.

Mesut had to be restrained as he walked into the tunnel.

Midfielder Ozil, 29, hit back at a small section of the vocal abuse, causing him to be restrained by another member of the German backroom staff.

A German coach is also seen shouting back towards the fans, who are being restrained by stewards on the nearly steps.

Following the game, under-pressure Germany boss Joachim Loew refused to pin the blame for the defeat on Ozil.

He said: “It wasn’t only Ozil, a number of other players didn’t perform as they normally would. I take responsibility for that and stand up for that, but I thought it was a good team.”
