South Korea v Germany: Reus and Werner wary of pace and Son

"We played excellently and scored a handsome goal".

Kroos took a thinly veiled dig at the German media and former players who had been sharply critical of the team over the past six days.

Sorg added that he valued the entire squad's strength in hard times and praised Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira - substitutes against Sweden - for their model behaviour and for supporting their teammates.

It all comes down to Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET on the final matchday, as Germany faces South Korea and Mexico takes on Sweden.

A potentially big problem is developing in the centre of Germany's defence after Jerome Boateng's red card in Saturday's 2-1 win over Sweden meant he would miss the South Korea match, with regular partner Mats Hummels already sidelined.

Mexico have one foot in the last 16 once more having won both their Group F matches, and Hernández told reporters: "The best things about dreams is to share them, share them with people like you who are dreamers".

"I didn't witness any gestures because after the final whistle we were really involved and we fell into each other's arms elated". "We're here for them, and they are here for us".

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, however, can still progress with a win.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson says he would be "dead inside" if he had not reacted to provocative celebrations by Germany after their World Cup defeat.

"We have strong competition with us in the squad", Low said. While numerous squad's players have turned in disappointing performances considering their dominant 2014 World Cup campaign, Reus has remained a consistent scoring threat and will likely pose a major challenge to South Korea's defense. Some of them said too much.

With renewed momentum at their backs and the talent offered by stars like Marco Reus and Toni Kroos, Germany will likely walk away with a win and greatly improve their chances of advancing to the knockout stage. "Of course, we want to do our best to get to the round of 16".

Herculez Gomez and Sebastian Salazar examine Carlos Vela's impact for Mexico at the World Cup after years of tension and a criticised move to MLS.

The Swedish soccer team rallied around midfielder Jimmy Durmaz after he was subjected to a torrent of racist abuse and death threats following his mistake in Sweden's defeat to Germany in the FIFA World Cup on Saturday.

But the DFB have said they will not have access to the pitch during Wednesday's game against South Korea.
