Germany vs South Korea live stream info, channel: How to watch World Cup 2018 on TV and online
Germany hopes its magic against Sweden continues against South Korea on Wednesday as it fights for a chance to move on to the round of 16 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Germany is leveled with Sweden on points (three) but has a better goal differential. It can go through with a draw as long as Mexico beats Sweden, while a victory and Sweden dropping points will also see them through.
The teams have no new major injuries and are expected to be close to full strength. German defender Mats Hummels, who missed the Sweden match, returned to training and is expected to play in this one.
Here’s how you can watch the match and more. And be sure to return a half an hour before kickoff for our live blog of the game:
When: Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET
Where: Kazan Arena
Germany midfielder Sebastian Rudy has been ruled out of the team’s final group game against South Korea at the World Cup after suffering multiple fractures to his nose.
Coach Joachim Loew said Tuesday on the eve of the match that Rudy hadn’t recovered after undergoing surgery.
Rudy picked up the injury during his team’s 2-1 win over Sweden last week. He was forced to leave the pitch after a Swedish player’s boot slammed into his nose in the first half as he was on the ground.
Loew said it wouldn’t make sense to make Rudy play with a protective mask. “It’s two or three days too early,” he said.
The German coach will also be without defender Jerome Boateng, who is suspended after getting sent off against Sweden. “All other players are available,” Loew said.
I could not believe how bad Germany were against Mexico but they showed why they are world champions with the way they rescued themselves so late on with their win over Sweden.
They surely won’t have any more slip-ups this time, against a South Korea side who have been beaten in both their games so far.
