Follow along for live updates and highlights of goals and key plays as Germany faces Sweden in the World Cup group stage.
Germany was dealt a surprise setback to start life in the World Cup. Not it’s out to turn around its tournament outlook.
Following a 1-0 loss to Mexico, Germany needs points when it face Sweden in Sochi. The defending champions didn’t quite look like themselves vs. El Tri, and Jogi Low will hope to inspire his side to three points it needs to avoid an unfavorable set of scenarios in the final match of Group F play. That task was made a bit more difficult by a neck injury to Mats Hummels, which has ruled the center back out for the match.
Sweden, meanwhile, earned a 1-0 win over South Korea in its opener, and by virtue of Mexico’s 2-1 win over the Asian side earlier on Saturday, it can unceremoniously dump Germany out of the competition with a win.
