Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018: Germany seeks great escape against South Korea

Then it's goal scored in games against each other, and that's where South Korea falls out, with only one goal scored in common games to two for the other two teams.

Would a draw be enough? Either way, this game has a lot riding on it.

In the case of teams finishing level on points, Federation Internationale de Football Association has put in place seven tie-breakers starting with goal difference and then the number of goals scored in all group matches the first two. The under 2.5 goals should win.

This was another strong performance by Juan Carlos Osorio's men as they were defensively strong while always unsafe on the counterattack. The aspect of the game that will be critical for Sweden to execute will be their finishing. The side lost their opening game 1-0 against Mexico, marking it as the 6th time the Champions failed to win their opening contest.

Marco Reus netted the equaliser just after half time, setting up a nail-biting finish.

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.

Defender Andreas Granqvist criticised the Germans' conduct but said they apologised afterwards. We addressed this many times.

The 2014 World Cup winners will be without midfielder Sebastian Rudy, who underwent surgery for a broken nose suffered in the last-minute win against Sweden, and the suspended Jerome Boateng.

"If we lose the ball, they have the chance to make deep runs. We have let it go but will come out of it as a group much stronger".

If Mexico can even take a point against Sweden, they will top the group, a victory will put them in an elite group of sides that have won all their group games.

A draw will see them make sure of a berth in the next round and cement their status as group winners.

You can only imagine the disappointment in the Sweden dressing room after their last-gasp defeat to Germany.

Die Mannschaft have to beat South Korea and hope Sweden fail to beat Mexico, or that they win without improving their goal difference. Can they bounce back?

Germany was shocked in its opening match in Russian Federation by losing to Mexico, and the squad needed a goal in stoppage time from Toni Kross to pull out a 2-1 victory over Sweden.
