'Without words', 'Schadenfreude' – World's media reacts to Germany's shock exit

Bild went back to the 2014 World Cup to react to Germany's shock exit in Russia, while British media enjoyed the upset.

Joachim Low's defending champions suffered a 2-0 loss to South Korea Wednesday to stunningly finish bottom of Group F, from which Sweden and Mexico progressed.

But as The Sun enjoyed the shock – using 'Schadenfreude' on their front page – Bild channeled 2014 and happier times.

The German newspaper went with the headline 'Without words', as they did after Low's team humiliated Brazil 7-1 in the 2014 semi-finals.

Fox Sports Brasil, meanwhile, also enjoyed Germany's departure.
