  'The Germans no longer always win': Lineker in latest rework of quote after shock exit

Now a popular television host and pundit, Lineker is famous for coining a quote that proposes Germans invariably win football matches regardless of what happens on the pitch during normal time.

After Germany pulled off a last-minute win against Sweden, Lineker upgraded his profundity with a hint of swearing, tweeting: "Football is a simple game, 22 men chase the ball for 82 minutes and the Germans get a player sent off so 21 men chase the ball for 13 minutes and at the end the Germans somehow f***ing win.

Following Germany's stunning 2-0 defeat to South Korea in Kazan on Wednesday, Lineker retracted his previous words, and tweaked the tweet to: the Germans no longer always win. Previous version is confined to history."
Germany crashed out having recorded just one win from thee group games, their defeat to South Korea following an opening day loss to Mexico, which came either side of a victory over Sweden, to see them finish in third place.
