Hummels to miss Germany-Sweden, confirms Low

Germany players celebrate after the match against Sweden.

Germany, who are tied with Sweden on points and goal difference, will play South Korea in the final round.

It was the first time Ozil was dropped from the lineup in a major worldwide championship in his senior career. The debate has focused on the German lineup and the role of Marco Reus. One was due to necessity after central defender Mats Hummels injured his neck in training on Thursday. Loew said he didn't see "any gestures or aggressive gestures" directed at the Swedes. "I don't think there are many groups of supporters who show this unlimited passion for their team".

The Swedes have been on a roll with upsets of France during qualifying and a win that eliminated Italy in the playoffs.

"Of course, the first goal (by Sweden) was my fault".

Romelu Lukaku scored twice in the opening round and all three of Belgium's goals came from open play. But it took a full half for him to find his rhythm, and the Tunisia squad will be a stronger opponent than Panama.

Here are the highlights from day 10 at the World Cup. That game went down to the wire before England eked out a 2-1 victory. "We must make sure the euphoria doesn't get the better of us and dedicate our efforts to recovering for the next game [against Sweden]". They can also advance with a draw if Germany lose to South Korea.


Plenty pointed out that Hernandez may need some singing lessons after today's game against South Korea, but we can't get enough of his face during an intense couple of minutes.

Victory for Sweden against Mexico would secure their place in the knockout stage.

They took the lead in Rostov-on-Don through Carlos Vela's penalty - the 14th of the tournament already - on 26 minutes after Jang Hyun-soo's handball.

"We have a certain stability and I liked how hard my team worked (against Belgium)".

South Korea received four yellow cards while committing the highest number of fouls in a game of any team so far in Russian Federation.

The closest they came to scoring in the first half was with a header from a corner which Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa tipped over the bar.

Gomez confirmed he was sticking with the team beaten 3-0 in Sochi on Monday in their opening match in Group G as Panama lost on their World Cup debut.
