For Monday's training, South Korea reportedly practiced their counterattack tactics against Germany.

However, a win by Sweden and, a win from Germany in their game against South Korea could have Mexico packing their bags and heading home.

Substitute Durmaz gave away the stoppage-time free-kick that led to Toni Kroos's stunning late victor in the Group F clash, and the stream of invectives on the 29-year-old's Instagram account began nearly as soon as the goal was scored.

Nearly instantaneously, Durmaz's social media accounts were awash with vicious, spiteful comments, many - sadly, predictably - in reference to his Turkish heritage. Sorg said team doctors would also look into the possibility of him playing with a face mask for the game in Kazan.

Thousands of supporters watching on big screens at the Brandenburg Gate huddled nervously under grey clouds and drizzle, before throwing their umbrellas away as Toni Kroos' late victor saved Germany. I will never let any racists destroy my pride. "We must all stand against all forms of racism". "We must think how we can improve our domestic league and work with young players", said Shin.

Polish referee Szymon Marciniak was in no mood to either award a spot-kick or consult VAR and the Sweden boss felt that was a mistake.

The improbable win, however, boosted the players' confidence ahead of a third World Cup encounter with 57th-ranked South Korea.

Marco Reus has no intention of allowing South Korea to get in the way of Germany progressing to the last 16 tomorrow now that the World Cup holders have already saved their skins once.
