"We will still need his creativity in the tournament".

If South Korea beat Germany and Sweden lose to Mexico, three teams will be all square at one win and two losses, and they will have to count tiebreakers to determine the second place finisher behind Mexico.

Germany's matchwinner Toni Kroos has criticised former internationals and pundits for putting the boot into the defending champions after their shaky World Cup start.

Even South Korea after two losses could still advance with a win over Germany and help from Mexico.

Joachim Low's charges were shocked in their opening game of the 2018 World Cup when Mexico pulled off a 1-0 victory and looked set for more disappointment on Saturday when they were level 1-1 with Sweden deep into stoppage time. "It is completely unacceptable".

The situation will create a lot of scoreboard watching on Wednesday when Mexico and Sweden play in Yekaterinburg and Germany and South Korea meet in Kazan.

"We hope this (victory against Sweden) was the ignition that will give us confidence and allow us to play more freely, use our chances better", said Marco Reus, who scored the equaliser against the Swedes. We all have to make a stand against racism.

After Sweden took the lead in Sochi on Saturday, Reus sparked Germany's fightback with a second-half equaliser before Toni Kroos hit the victor.

- 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.

"We do not tolerate a player being exposed to threats and violations", said Hakan Sjostrand, secretary general of the Swedish FA.

In the post-match interview, Kroos accepted the fact that he was responsible for Sweden's goal, but then gave a direct reply on Germany's fightback in the 2nd half.

After almost a week of hearing what was wrong with German soccer following the loss to Mexico, the defending champions were on the verge of an even louder uproar.

"Crazy people openly raging with racism against Jimmy Durmaz after a football match unfortunately says too much about the world we live in", Swedish sports journalist Patrick Ekwall tweeted on Sunday.

"It will be a very hard game and there will be a lot of counter-attacks from South Korea... they also have a tight defence".
