Mueller benched, Ozil and Khedira back for Germany

0shares

Holding midfielder Sebastian Rudy had replaced Khedira in the team but suffered a broken nose in Germany's second match against Sweden and was not fit to play at the Kazan Arena even with a mask.

Fittingly it was just as well that the World Cup's biggest story was sealed with the VAR system. It would take an eternity for Brazil to forget the 7-1 mauling Germany inflicted on them in 2014.

The FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russian Federation.

Germany finished rock bottom of Group F and were eliminated following a devastating 2-0 defeat by South Korea on Wednesday afternoon.

"They are very important players, strategically and mentally", Son said.

Senegal back in action, England on brink of qualification
Senegal can wrap up their passage to the knockout stages by getting the better of Japan , but it won't be an easy game. In mitigation, Colombia played nearly the whole game with 10 men after Carlos Sanchez was sent off on three minutes.

Though South Korea itself was knocked out, Mexicans flocked to the embassy to celebrate the Asian team. There is a lot of energy and emotions but we want to be positive and concentrate on the right stuff.

Having beaten Germany and Korea in their first two games, Mexico's 3-0 loss to Sweden yesterday (27 June) meant that South Korea had to beat Germany if Mexico were to advance to the next stage of the tournament.

Asked about Kim's strike, which was allowed after Toni Kroos was adjudged to have played the ball backwards, Low said: "The player was in an offside position - that's what I saw". El Tri was on the brink of elimination if Germany had beaten South Korea. "We are very grateful", said Pablo Gonzalez, 45.

Germany coach Joachim Loew said his players will be wary of the speed and pace of their opponents to avoid getting caught on the break. The German team of four years ago would have strolled to nine points in Group F.

It ends any chance of England facing off against their historical rivals - and ensures they outlast them at a World Cup finals until 1966. "It shows that with Italy and the Netherlands out before the tournament, Chile, who were in the Confederations Cup final, and now Germany, you can not relax and miss the opportunity to constantly improve".
