South Korea players celebrate after Kim Young-gwon (not pictured) scored their first goal against Germany in their FIFA World Cup match at Kazan Arena, Kazan, Russia on Wednesday. "But now we are at a World Cup, it's a new cycle, a new format", said coach Tite in an attempt to keep feet on the ground.

Guardado has had many compliments for his football over the years but has always missed out on a big contract.

On paper, it's easy for fans to try and work out how the games might play out and which teams should qualify from each group, but once the players take to the pitch, anything can happen.

"We were too slow, we deserved to lose", admitted Laura Kabinsky, who watched the match at Berlin's fan mile and donned a necklace in the black, red and gold of the German flag for the occasion.

"This is football", said Ahn, who is working for Korean television at the World Cup.
