Germany to face South Korea in do-or-die contest

#WC2018: Hernandez nets as Mexico sees off South Korea

Although South Korea have been aggressive in the tackle and willing to cover plenty of ground, they have really struggled to develop any attacking momentum. "It will be a last ditch effort". Yes, Marco Reus had a better game in the No10 role than Ozil had against Mexico, but Julian Draxler wasn't at his best and Thomas Muller was yet again shockingly poor.

Germany need to produce a performance that bears all the hallmark of champions - dominant, swaggering, ruthless, the sort of side they were four years ago.

South Korea will be without captain Ki Sung-yueng, who has a calf strain. He provided far more cut and thrust than he had against Sweden, and the entire attack looked better as a result.

Toni Kroos scores on a devastating set piece.

Javier Hernandez scored his 50th global goal to help Mexico take a big step towards the last 16 of the World Cup with an impressive win over South Korea, despite Son Heung-min's stunning late strike.

Germany were far from flawless against the Swedes.

Midfielder Sebastian Rudy has been ruled out after having an a minor operation on his nose after he fractured it against Sweden.

The possible absences don't end there for Germany.

Germany have never failed to progress from the opening group stage at a World Cup.

He may even be partnered with club teammate Niklas Sule, given Antonio Rudiger's shaky performance against Sweden. Joachim Low has to be tempted to bring in Mario Gomez but I wouldn't.

My belief that Germany can win this tournament hasn't wavered, despite their brush with disaster.

As anger over the policy reached its peak, Trump signed an Executive Order on June 20 to enable these families to stay together. He said , "When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came".

Germany have come under fire from the Sweden coach, who said the German bench's celebrations were insensitive to their opponents.

South Korea's only victory against Germany was in a friendly in 2004.

Joachim Low's men gave themselves a big chance of making the knockout rounds of the competition when they beat the Swedes 2-1 on Saturday thanks to a late goal from Toni Kroos.

"We have to do our duty and win the game, preferably not by just 1-0 but higher".

Over 2.5 Goals is priced at [1.57] here, which is a bit too short of be of interest.

"There are a number of criteria I will look at before I decide the line-up".

South Korea hopes to make it out of the group stages of the World Cup for the third time since 2002. They are [19.0] to pull off a huge shock.

Sweden had scored in the first half on a clever counterattack, and with its one goal secured, made a decision to settle into some of the most defensive football seen at the World Cup so far. They are [1.91] to win to nil. "When you put in 400 passes in a game, then one or two won't go where they should", said Kroos.

- Germany's victory over Sweden was their first at the World Cup when conceding first since 1998, a 2-1 win over Mexico. Son is [5.0] to score.

They have won 15 of their last 17 competitive matches (D1, L1) since losing to France at Euro 2016. The draw half-time/Germany full-time double result is [4.0].

Remarkably, Korean hopes of reaching the round of 16 are still alive despite losses in their first two matches but they must beat Germany by two goals and hope Mexico beat Sweden in Wednesday's other Group F match. The odds of there being a penalty in the match are [2.5].
