  • VIDEO Antonio Rudiger's hilarious reaction to Toni Kroos winner for Germany

Germany may also progress if they improve their goal difference in a win against South Korea, regardless of whether Sweden claim three points against Mexico.

German coach Joachim Low had given the team a rest on Sunday after their tense game, which saw Die Mannschaft on the edge of elimination from the tournament until Real Madrid's Toni Kroos scored the winning goal in extra time.

Germany finished bottom of Group F after a 2-0 defeat by South Korea.

"But the whole group is still alive so we have to lick our wounds and come back from the next one", said the Sweden coach. In last four tournaments, the Champions have been eliminated in the group stages three times.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson ramped up his verbal attack on Germany on Tuesday, calling the behaviour of some of their staff in celebrating their last-gasp victor "scornful".

Sweden can qualify with a victory or a draw against Mexico if Germany lose to South Korea. "Now we know what the matter is - that a few per cent less is not enough to win against the teams here", he said.

"We still have not qualified but who would have said we would have six points by now?" asked Hernandez, a former Manchester United forward who always appears happiest wearing the green of his country.




"Let's hope the height of the players will play a part because we're good in those situations", Andersson said, adding that he may not make too many changes to the team that started the last match.

They were knocked out on penalties to the Germans in both World Cup '90 and Euro '96.

Mexico defender Jesus Gallardo received the quickest yellow card in World Cup history on Wednesday.

Switzerland will reach the round of 16 with at least a draw. We are not going to be surprised by them.

"To be able to react if needed, I will be informed about the result of the Mexico versus Sweden match on the bench".

As we explained in our previous guide for how to watch the World Cup 2018, it's easy to tune in to these channels even if you don't have a satellite or cable TV package.
