Germany Eliminated from World Cup, Hockey Hall of Fame Inducts Brodeur, St. Louis, Bettman and Serena Williams Seeded 25th for Wimbledon
2014 FIFA World Cup champions Germany, have been eliminated today in a 2-0 loss to Korea Republic. Germany's head coach Joachim Low expressed surprise and dismay at the loss but said the future of German football still looked strong.
"I'm shocked. Shocked because we didn't manage to pull it off and beat Korea Republic and we lost this game. It wasn't my impression when I spoke to the team before that they were under pressure before the match because the Sweden game was on at the same time and we really had the feeling that our team wanted to move ahead and qualify for the knockout stages.
"How do we go from here? We'll have to talk about it calmly and I think it's premature for me to say something. It will take me some hours to come to terms with it and I'm incredibly disappointed by this elimination.
"Do I think this will bring about a dark time in German football? No, I don't think so. I think we have young players who are very talented, and some have the potential to go forward. This has happened to other nations before, we just have to draw the right conclusions and make it better going forward."
The Hockey Hall of Fame's Class of 2018 were announced yesterday with Martin Brodeur, Martin St. Louis, Willie O'Ree, Alexander Yakushev, Jayna Hefford and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman chosen for induction. NHL.com quotes O'Ree, the first black player in the NHL, on receiving the news of his selection:
"I was laughing and I was crying and I was at a loss for words," O'Ree, 82, said of his reaction when he received the call informing him he had been elected to the Hall of Fame. "It's just been a great year this year."
Wayne Gretzky congratulated Bettman, who has been the NHL Commissioner since 1993, and noted his consistent passion for the sport.
"The Commissioner's vision to give every club a chance to win the Stanley Cup has made our game stronger. His leadership and love for hockey is very evident. And hockey has become more entertaining year after year, thanks in part to his passion for the game. Congratulations, Mr. Bettman."
The All England Club has seeded Serena Williams at No. 25 for the Wimbledon tournament above her ranking of 183rd, according to the Associated Press. This will be Williams' first time competing at Wimbledon after her pregnancy. Williams is a seven-time champion at Wimbledon.
