KXIP vs KKR Live Score

If Germany were to ultimately be eliminated from the competition after this match, they would be the third successive reigning champion to not get out of the group stage.

A win over Mexico will guarantee Sweden passage from the group stages into the Round of 16.

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.

South Korea are missing injured captain Ki Sung-yueng, who plays for Swansea.

It looked like those results would be enough for Mexico to advance, but then Toni Kroos scored deep into extra time to give Germany a 2-1 win over Sweden, setting up the various scenarios that will come into play during Wednesday's simultaneous matches.

Mexico are top of the table going into Wednesday's final Group F games, with six points and a positive goal differential of two.

"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 never lost hope that we could turn the tide and win this match.

Obviously, that relies on them beating the World Champions, but who is to say they can't?

Mexico hasn't yet secured its spot in the round of 16, but forward Javier Hernandez believes the squad is a contender to win the entire tournament.

The Sweden team have given a strong show of unity after winger Jimmy Durmaz was subjected to death threats for his role in Germany's late victor in the teams' World Cup group match in Sochi. El Tri will be looking for a point to win the group.

Jimmy Durmaz and the rest of the Sweden squad took a powerful stand against racism as the nation's football association made complaints of online abuse on behalf of the winger to police. Some of them said too much.

"Even if we have less possession than Germany we will do our utmost to beat Germany tomorrow".

South Korea's defence may be the most welcoming they've faced so far in Russian Federation, which could allow them to find their feet.

In the pre-game press conference, Germany superstars Marco Reus and Timo Werner stressed that they need to be wary of South Korea's pace in the attacking department.

"The victory has done us good, especially because in the end everyone had the feeling that we had worked things out".

Despite two victories in two games, Mexico's future in the World Cup is almost as unsettled as it was when the team landed in Russian Federation three weeks ago.

Holders Germany were on the brink of crashing out of the World Cup following OlaToivolen's first half opener for Sweden.
