South Korea v Germany

Angry Andersson hits out at Germans for'rubbing it into our faces

South Korea will take on Germany at 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday in their group-stage finale.

Now the Germany boss is weighing up whether to give Ozil a second chance. He has shown what he can do, so I think we really need to keep an eye on him.

Messi scored his first goal at Russian Federation 2018 in the first half, but Victor Moses equalised shortly after half-time to put Argentina on the brink of bowing out before Rojo´s late winner.

The permutations of what they need to do could be complex, but in simple terms Joachim Low's side must beat South Korea by two or more goals or better Sweden's result to guarantee qualification.

"It's a fact, we cannot deny, Germany are much stronger than us but we have to have a mindset that we can do it".

But if both Sweden and Germany are winning, then Mexico could head out despite winning their opening two games. Although it's likely that Germany will have more possession, we will do our best.

Germany are priced at a rather prohibitive [1.2] for the win, but you can boost that price to [1.88] if you back them -2.0 on the Asian Handicap.

However, Mats Hummels should be fit to start as he recovers from a neck injury.




Although South Korea sit bottom of the group without a point following defeats to Mexico (2-1) and Sweden (1-0), all four teams can still qualify.

The last meeting between these clubs was a 2004 friendly, a match South Korea won 3-1.

- Germany has won all five of its World Cup games against Asian opponents, scoring 19 goals in total and keeping clean sheets in its last three.

South Korea have lost their last four World Cup matches in a row, their joint-worst run - they also lost four in a row between 1986 and 1990.

- Germany's victory over Sweden was their first at the World Cup when conceding first since 1998, a 2-1 win over Mexico.

Title-holders Germany have picked up three points from their first two group F matches against Mexico and Sweden.

South Korea are the only side at this World Cup to have lost their first two games but to still be in with a shout of qualifying, albeit a very, very slim one.

Germany looked like its chances to advance out of the group stages were all but over until Toni Kroos found the back of the net on a set piece in extra time, beating Sweden 2-1. Falling out of their title defence at this stage would be a calamity for Germany, one of the major pre-tournament favourites whose future in Russian Federation is already at stake. They have far more quality than South Korea in their squad and should secure a comfortable victory in this one.
