Germany's early exit from this year's World Cup has made headlines across the world - with newspapers from a host of countries featuring the defending champions' plight on their front pages.
Germany's shock exit from the competition is good news for England, who now have an easier route through the competition.
But the best part is seeing the fans frolic in front of the South Korean embassy with tequila bottles for consul general Byoung-Jin Han in their hands. South Korea, on three, finished third, ahead of Germany on goal difference.
One former Mexico coach, Ricardo La Volpe, suggested that the players were already feeling the weight of the so-called "fifth match" - the elusive quarter-final - as they fell apart against the physical Europeans.
They also conceded that the team had simply not been good enough in Russian Federation.
"Thanks Korea, because of you we are still in the world cup". The presence of veterans like Gianluigi Buffon and Fabio Cannavaro and that of Marcello Lippi as coach could not prevent Italy from being humbled in the group stage as they failed to win a single game.
"I can't really explain what we did wrong".
"It's a psychological thing and the players still don't know how the play with the burden of being winners".
"Of course we are extremely disappointed in ourselves and the result and the World Cup we played".
The Germans graciously congratulated their group rivals Mexico and Sweden on their progress, as well as South Korea on their famous victory. "Luckily the Koreans did us a favour", said Alan Gonzalez, 29, a lawyer. I'm incredibly disappointed by this elimination'.
