South Korea is the only team so far who have been out of the world cup from their group and their last match against Germany would be for pride. The Koreans may dreamt of a longer world cup journey but they failed to Sweden in their first game and blamed it all on the Swedish and then again they fell short of Mexico in their second game 2-1 with a stunner from Son Heung Min couldn’t get them any points. However, if South Korea manages to win this game then Sweden and Mexico would be through to the next round but if they lose then Sweden is most likely to be replaced by Germany but for that the Germans needed to win this game. Germany has been terrible as of late on the ground and they need to change that if they really want to continue their world cup dream. Germany has a plenty of injuries too on the team and that would be a concern for Joachim Low but a lot will depend on the pair of Toni Kroos and Marco Reus in this game because South Korean has been very organized when it comes to defending and they might frustrate the Germans in this game.
