The 2018 World Cup is underway. CBS Sports will have you covered for each game, all the important news and more, as well as profiles of all of the teams.
With a 2-0 loss to South Korea, Germany is out of the World Cup with just three points in group play. Considered by many to be among the favorites with an outstanding squad this year, Germany put together just two goals and was shutout twice.
The Germans had to face plenty of adversity early in the tournament, losing their opener to Mexico then facing the prospect of a 1-1 draw with Sweden that would have put them on the ropes. Instead, a stoppage-time goal gave them three points, but Germany couldn't capitalize on a Mexico collapse and was eliminated in group play for the first time in club history.
Here's all you need to know about Germany at the World Cup.

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer of Bayern Munich, who missed most of the league season with an injury, but is expected to play in the tournament. He's one of the world's greatest goalkeepers, but even if he can't go, the Germans will be fine. That's because backup Marc-Andre ter Stegen is also one of the world's top goalkeepers, starring for Barcelona.
