Germany has been relegated from League A of the inaugural Nations League, as a dreadful 2018 for Joachim Low's side got even worse.
Netherlands' impressive 2-0 home victory over world champion France in Rotterdam on Friday ensured Germany will finish bottom of Group 1 in League A, which is the UEFA competition's top tier.
Georginio Wijnaldum's strike just before half-time and a stoppage-time penalty from Memphis Depay sealed the 2014 World Cup winner's fate.
Germany's relegation comes with a game to spare – it still has to host Netherlands on Monday having only picked up one point from its three Nations League games to date.
It joins Iceland and Poland in being relegated from the top tier. Croatia or England will join that trio in League B next season.
Ukraine, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Denmark are among the teams who will replace Germany in League A, with Russia or Sweden to fill the final spot and play at a higher level than Germany in the 2020-21 competition.
Germany's Nations League relegation comes after a humiliating World Cup title defence saw it crash out of this year's showpiece in Russia at the first hurdle, failing to get out of the group stage.
It lost to Mexico and South Korea at the World Cup, going out in the first round for the first time since 1938.
In 12 matches this year, Germany has won only four.
