South Korea waited 16 years to get their World Cup revenge on Germany, and while Wednesday's astonishing 2-0 win over the defending champions came in the group stage rather than the semifinals it tasted no less sweet.
Loew said that different from Sweden which stood rather deep, the South Koreans usually try to be involved with the ball from the midfield and they have two or three players who are very quick and can launch fast attacks there and "it would be our task to contain that".
Shin, who had given South Korea a one per cent chance of victory before the game, said: "I feel great, but at the same time, I feel a little bit empty, so I feel a little ambivalent".
I didn't look at that group and think automatically that they would go through. "We need to draw the right conclusions".

He said: "Until quite recently, we have probably been the most consistent, in terms of performance, team in the past 10, 12 years".
Gomez had a decent header stopped by Jo in the 68th minute and could not properly connect with a low cross from Kimmich in the 72nd as Germany's hopes vanished.
South Korea also had nothing to play for, given it lost its first two games of pool play and had no chance of advancing to the knockout stage.
World Cup or Eurovision, Iceland keep on hoping
Messi's legacy as the greatest player to have ever played the game might depend on how he plays for the rest of this World Cup . Only Nigeria can be certain that if they win their game, Iceland and Argentina will not be able to catch them on points.
