Mexico's future in the World Cup? The possibilities are endless

Therefore, Son Heung-min will definitely play a vital role in this clash along with the likes of Hwang Hee-Chan and Moon Seon-Min.

As South Korea's sole threat, it was fitting that Tottenham striker Son gave his side fleeting hope in added time with a sublime, curling strike from 25 yards.

For example, if South Korea beats Germany 2-0 and Mexico beats Sweden 1-0, South Korea would finish second.

Low addressed the media on Sunday and said Hummels was "likely to play" alongside Antonio Rudiger in central defence, per Reuters' Karolos Grohmann despite missing the Sweden victory. In fact, if both Sweden and Germany win by one goal, the only way Mexico advances over Germany is if its game with Sweden has more total goals than Germany-South Korea. "The cohesion has grown through the Sweden game", Brandt said of the Sweden match to the official website of the German Football Association (DFB).

Maradona also said that by beating South Korea, Mexico showed that their initial win over Germany was no fluke.

Son's South Korea have already been knocked out - despite the Spurs star scoring a goal of the tournament contender against Mexico - after losing both of their Group D outings.

"Against South Korea we will all know what is at stake and what our common goal is". Germany, however, can still progress with a win. The Swedes might end up needing to win by two goals, depending on what Germany do.

Janne Andersson, the Sweden head coach, complained about Germany's conduct after the final whistle but Leeds United's Jansson, one of those who led the protests, said Germany had apologised.

South Korea have been very disappointing, they are without a key player in Ki, and a dispiriting early goal could see them overwhelmed here. At the 2018 World Cup, Toivonen has scored once from just two shots.

The defending champions needed a 95th-minute free-kick from Toni Kroos to overcome Sweden, and though the narrowness of the result drew some criticism, their fortitude and knack for winning deserves the opposite.

The Sweden coach stated that the set pieces could play a crucial factor in the game, with the Swedish team having a height advantage, but said he respects Mexico and congratulated El Tri on its two wins so far. They missed many chances against Germany and they will need to improve on that if they wish to beat Mexico. "He's the sort of player who, despite negativity, he looks forward, he keeps a positive attitude and he's very important for us".

"They're the world champions, they're world number one".
