German national team apologise to fans on Twitter

Deutscher Fußball-Bund (DFB)

The German national team published a first apology to their fans on their official Twitter account earlier today.

Germany crashed out from the 2018 FIFA World Cup following a 0-2 defeat to South Korea yesterday to mark their first-ever World Cup group stage exit.

“Die Mannschaft” tweeted following message:

“Dear fans, we feel just as disappointed as you. The World Cup only comes around every four years and we expected so much more from us. We’re sorry for not playing like world champions, and as painful as it is, we deserve to be out…”

“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.”

“Congrats to #SWE and #MEX, and of course to #KOR on their win.”

“Thanks to Russia for your hospitality!”
