- Germany crashed out of the 2018 World Cup after suffering a humiliating defeat against South Korea
- The German team arrived at Vnukovo Airport in Moscow to begin journey home
- Joachim Low was pictured hiding behind sunglasses as the dejected team checked in at the airport
Germany head coach Joachim Low was on Thursday morning, June 28, spotted at Vnukovo Airport in Moscow hiding behind sunglasses as the disillusioned German team prepared to fly back home.
Germany crashed out of the 2018 after suffering a 2-0 humiliating defeat against South Korea in their last group match on Wednesday, June 27.
The reigning world champions were tipped to successfully defend the title, but the incredible loss to South Korea saw them exit at the group stages for the first time in history.
Following their disappointing campaign, the visibly dejected Germans were pictured making their final preparations to jet back home.
Low led his wards to the airport donning dark sunglasses, with Toni Kroos and Manuel Neuer spotted boarding the plane.
Star defender Jerome Boateng sported a rucksack embellished with the word 'Supreme' which was quite ironical given his performances at the tournament that were far from impressive.
The Bayern Munich player was sent off in the latter stages of his nation's match against Sweden, and therefore did not feature in the last match against South Korea.
In reaction to their disastrous campaign, the national team's official Twitter account sent a tweet admitting that they deserved to bow out of the competition.
''We're sorry for not playing like world champions, and as painful as it is, we deserve to be out," the tweet said.
''Your support across the globe was incredible. We celebrated together in 2014, but sometimes in football you have to accept defeat and admit that your opponents were better," a follow-up tweet added.
The European nation will be looking to make amends during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar should they qualify for edition.
