  • Die Mannschaft have won three of its four World Cup games against Sweden (in 1934, 1974 and 2006)

Preview

Whilst Germany cruised through their qualifying rounds without much fuss, Sweden had to earn their ticket to Russia through a two-legged play-off against four-time World Cup winners Italy. After finishing second in their group behind France - but managing to edge out the Netherlands - the Blågult took on the Azzurri.

It wasn't the most exiciting of games, as they took a 1-0 win in the first leg and hunkered down defensively at the San Siro to preserve that lead, but it was enough to deny legendary shot-stopper Gianluigi Buffon the chance to feature at another World Cup and keep Italy out of the tournament for the first time since 1958. Impressively, Sweden's path to Russia was achieved without star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who had decided to retire after EURO 2016, and Janne Andersson was so confident in his team's chances to do well that he opted to snub the 36-year-old's pleas to return to the squad.

Sweden edged out South Korea thanks to a converted penalty, and now will be hoping to earn another good result against a German side reeling after their shock loss to Mexico. Prior that that meeting, die Mannschaft had beaten the Mexicans in all three of their prior World Cup meetings, and many had expected a same result on matchday one of this summer's World Cup.

Not so. Football is truly an unpredictable thing, and Hirving Lozano's effort was enough to give El Tri a hard-fought, and long-awaited win over the European powerhouse. With Mexico certainly brilling with confidence ahead of their own clash against South Korea, the pressure is mounting on Joachim Low's side to get things right in this fixture.

Will they manage to avoid a second straight negative result? The so-called "curse of the Champions" looms even larger, as three out of the last four World Cup winners failed to clear the group stage four years after lifting the title.
