Thursday, June 28, 2018, 17:06 GMT+7

The Consulate General of Germany in Ho Chi Minh City organized a mini fan zone for supporters to cheer for Die Mannschaft in their last Group F game against South Korea on Wednesday, but no one returned home happy when their beloved team suffered a shock exit.

The gathering at the DeutschesHaus Ho Chi Minh City in District 1 attracted hundreds of diehard German and Vietnamese fans, who were left in grief and shock after Germany were defeated 0-2 by South Korea.

Supporters of the Asian team also joined in the fan zone.

The stunning defeat by a tenacious South Korea sent the reigning champions home, while Sweden and Mexico advanced as Group F leaders and runners-up.

Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper captured photos of Germany’s supporters as they went on an emotional roller coaster throughout the dramatic match.

The gathering was held at the lobby of the DeutschesHaus Building on Le Duan street in District 1.
