Korea still have 1% chance, says Se-jong

Nothing in this tournament has come easy for Die Mannschaft.

If Sweden beat Mexico on Wednesday and Germany beat South Korea, three teams would be tied atop Group F with six points, sending it to tiebreakers that start with the best goal differential.

It's all unexpected in a way.

Marco Reus equalised in the 48th minute, meeting a low cross from Timo Werner, and despite having Jerome Boateng sent off in the 82nd minute, Germany kept going and Kroos earned them a famous win.

The defending champions put in a nervous display after a barrage of criticism following defeat by Mexico.

One moment, one strike changed it all.

"We have two important tasks to complete and we have to win both games", Germany's Thomas Müller said. "We stand united, we are Sweden".

"As a striker you want to score, but this is my first World Cup and I've experienced walking into the stadium twice now and no money in the world can replace that".

But Kroos was flawless.

Korea's Oh Ban-suk, left, and Jung Seung-hyun, centre, attend South Korea's official training in Lomonosov near St. Petersburg, Russia, Sunday, June 24, 2018 at the 2018 soccer World Cup.

It also created chaos in Group F. What seemed straight forward deep into stoppage time was turned upside down.

"It (the Mexico match) is like a last 16 game, we know we have to win to go through".

"South Korea have very fast, agile and versatile players who create a lot of problems for many teams", said Reus, who expects the Asian team to copy Mexico's tactics of counter-attacking through Germany's midfield.

"In the dressing room we said we have everything in our own hands", Jansson said.

Germany coach Joachim Loew said he was not aware of any taunting.

Germany's task was made more hard when key defender Jerome Boateng was sent off in the 82nd minute for a second yellow card.

"It was the right decision to pick him and drop Mesut Ozil". It would be surprising if he does not get another chance against South Korea.

"This is unbelievable, unforgettable, it fills me with pride and happiness", said Lozano, who according to reports in the Spanish media has attracted interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.

However, the comments and the situation snowballed, causing the Swedes to inform the authorities and take a stand.
