Germany to coast past an underwhelming South Korea

Mexico are on six points, but could still miss out entirely if they lose to Sweden and Germany win. A loss for Mexico could spell distaster, dropping them to third place depending on the victor of the South Korea/Germany game, and the number of goals scored in that game. If both draws are with the same score, Germany finish second due to their head-to-head win over Sweden.

But after a 1-1 draw against Switzerland, Brazil needed two injury-time goals to pull out a 2-0 victory over Costa Rica.

Sweden substitute Pontus Jansson said he had lost his temper with the Germans but accepted they had ultimately regretted their actions.

Germany were in real danger of a group-stage exit from the tournament, with a draw only likely to give them a temporary reprieve, until Kroos curled in a 95th-minute free-kick to take the points last night.

This is the first time in history Germany have been dumped out of the World Cup at the group stage.

"We will play against South Korea a little differently from the way we did against Sweden and we will chose the starting line-up accordingly". Up front they have three, four fast players.

After 16 consecutive World Cups, world champions Germany are going home.

"We still have an excellent opportunity to qualify and we will do everything to achieve that", Andersson said. "Now we know what the matter is - that a few per cent less is not enough to win against the teams here", he said.

In the past 16 World Cups, Germany have never failed to make it to the last eight. "But if they call me a coward and unbearable things ... if they go for my family, then I will show the tiger inside".

"I am a footballer at the highest level, being criticized is something we live with".

They had to fight hard and come back from behind to pick up a 2-1 victory against Sweden in their second match to extend their survival in the competition.
