Germany Are Out. That's right, the defending champions have not only failed to make the second round for the first time since 1938, but they've finished bottom of their group after a 2-0 loss to South Korea with both goals coming in injury time.

South Korean goalkeeper Jo Hyeonwoo was amazing in goal, managing to pull out a string of impressive saves to deny the German shooters. "I've never had a perfect game like this before, all my career, " he said afterwards.

Sweden topped their group after an convincing 3-0 win over Mexico, who also advance as runners-up.

Five-time champions Brazil completed an unbeaten Group E campaign, sliding past Serbia 2-0, while Switzerland's 2-2 with Costa Rica also saw them progress undefeated to the knockout stages.

With a busy schedule still to come, below the full World Cup 2018 fixture timings, so you don't miss a second of the action.

All times BST. Local times are BST+2 apart from games played in Kaliningrad (+1), Samara (+3) and Ekaterinburg (+4).
