Sweden take on a Mexico side that has defeated Germany and South Korea and sits on six points from two games, but the Scandinavian side are confident of a victory to keep them in the competition.

Elsewhere in Russian Federation, as the first round draws to a close, five-time winners Brazil need a point from their final Group E game against Serbia to guarantee progress.

Mexico's Javier Hernandez celebrates his winning goal against South Korea last week.

Durmaz, born in Sweden to Assyrian parents, gave away the free-kick from which Kroos powered home Germany's dramatic late goal.

Praising out-of-form Thomas Muller as a player "who looks ahead after two bad games, an important player for us", he added that both Arsenal's Mesut Ozil and Juve's Sami Khedira showed a good reaction in training after remaining on the bench during the win against Sweden. So for example if Germany draw 1-1, Sweden would advance with a 2-2 draw but would be out with a 1-1 or 0-0 draw.

Without going through all of the scenarios, the best case would be for Joachim Löw's men to beat South Korea by two or more goals, Germany would be through to the round of 16 no matter what else happened.

Victory will confirm Brazil as group winners, but coach Tite is warning that under-fire superstar Neymar can not be expected to win the World Cup on his own and is not yet at full fitness.

In last four tournaments, the Champions have been eliminated in the group stages three times.

"We have to be clear about what we need to achieve", said Loew.

"It's nothing I'm bothered about", Durmaz said.

This was another group that changed dramatically after a stoppage-time goal as Germany, facing potential elimination, pushed themselves right back into the mix by beating Sweden. "If they score first, they know how to defend". There are no matches featuring both teams needing a draw to make it through. We have everything to gain tomorrow so from that perspective mentally, we are very strong, we believe in what we do.

Federation Internationale de Football Association fined three Swiss players for making hand gestures that seemed directed against their opponents because many Swiss players have ties to the former Serbian province of Kosovo.

If Serbia beat Brazil they definitely qualify but a draw could see them through if the Swiss are beaten by Costa Rica by more than one goal.
