FIFA World Cup, Group F

Teams: Germany vs South Korea

Date: 27 June 2018

Time: 16:00

Venue: Kazan Arena

Die Mannschaft started the tournament with a surprise defeat against Mexico and needed a 95th minute goal by Toni Kroos in the second clash against Sweden in order to prevent an early exit.

Korea, meanwhile, have lost both their opening fixtures in Group F (0-1 against Sweden and 1-2 against Mexico) and have only a theoretical chance of progressing but would need to beat Germany by two goals and hope for Mexico to beat Sweden.

Joachim Low’s side need to beat the Asian team with a bigger margin than a potential win by Sweden over Mexico in the other Group F clash to secure their spot in the last 16 of the tournament.

If Mexico beat Sweden or draw against the European side, a draw for the 2014 winners would also be enough to set up a potential last 16 clash with Brazil.

Korea have lost six of their last eight games in all competitions, while Germany’s last-minute win against Sweden was only their second win in the last eight games.

Low needs to replace the suspended Jerome Boateng, while Sebastian Rudy has not recovered in time from his nose injury.

Here is how the two teams will line up:

Germany: Neuer, Kimmich, Süle, Hummels, Hector, Kroos, Khedira, Goretzka, Özil, Reus, Werner

South Korea: Jo, Y Lee, Yun, Y G Kim, Hong, J S Lee, Jang, Koo, Jung, Moon, Son

This Werner hasn't really taken off thus , I thought he would start with Mario Gomez. For a change Thomas Muller isn't in the starting 11

I still don't understand why Low left Leroy Sane. is it because he has African blood in him?
