Sweden united ahead of Mexico showdown

- Mexico could potentially be eliminated if they were to lose to Sweden and Germany were to beat South Korea, based on either goal difference, goals scored or fair play points. "We have to win against the Koreans and not just 1-0". When Bulgaria's Iordan Letchkov knocked out Germany 2-1 with a powerful header in the quarterfinal of the 1994 World Cup, the neutral world rejoiced with certain schadenfreude.

"However, I am quite convinced that if we play in a liberated way and with the same fluent style, quality and passion that we invested against Sweden, South Korea will have a hard time beating us".

Fuming Sweden coach Janne Andersson accused Germany of "rubbing it in our faces" as they celebrated the dramatic late goal from Toni Kroos that gave them a 2-1 win in their crucial World Cup clash here.

At Sweden's training session on Sunday, Durmaz, who is of Turkish descent, read out a statement on his cell phone as his teammates stood in unison behind him. "Completely unacceptable", Sjostrand said, Reuters reported.

The draw would have kept Sweden ahead of Germany in Group F and needing only a draw against Mexico in the last match. "No one is going to write the title our way, we have to do it ourselves, it has to come from us", he said.

Chennai: Football fans had to stay awake past midnight to watch Germany's thrilling win over Sweden on Saturday.

- Mexico has never won three consecutive matches at the World Cup and could become the first CONCACAF team to achieve this feat in World Cup history.

Defeat would have meant the earliest elimination for the four-times champions since 1938, and the criticism awaiting the team, who lost their opening match to Mexico, would have been massive in the soccer-mad nation.

"It will be a very hard game and there will be a lot of counter-attacks from South Korea".

Werner - who admitted he was too exhausted to join in the celebrations after Kroos' dramatic goal - started against Sweden in a central role but was moved out wide for the second half to accommodate the introduction of Mario Gomez.

"The main thing is that we score one goal more than Mexico after 90 minutes, and if it will come in the 85th minute that's quite alright", Prahl said.
