Preview

Before their game against Sweden, it seemed like Germany's World Cup ambitions had gone up in smoke. Die Mannschaft had suffered a surprise 1-0 loss to Mexico - their first ever in a World Cup meeting - and there was major concern that Joachim Low's men could be the latest victim of the so-called "Champions Curse". Three out of the last four World Cup winners (France, Italy, and Spain) ended up exiting the tournament at the group stage four years after winning the coveted trophy, and that thought surely weighed upon the reigning champs' minds as they prepared to face Sweden.

And when the Swedes took an early lead, many German fans' hearts sunk. After all, Sweden had gotten exactly what they came to achieve - another 1-0 win - and were prepared to hunker down and defend for the rest of the match. They were fortunate not to be 2-0 down due to Jerome Boateng's clumsy shove on a Swedish player in the box, but no penalty was called and Germany were able to head into the half-time break just a goal down.

Boateng, who had appeared suspect and shaky in defense all game, eventually got himself sent off after one too many reckless challenges, leaving his side with a man short with nearly ten minutes remaining. Marco Reus had grabbed a vital equalizer after the half-time break, but with Sweden defending as if their lives depended on it, the fear was that Germany could be out of the tournament even before things really got started.

However, Toni Kroos's brilliant free-kick decided proceedings and gave die Mannschaft the life-line they desperately needed. Now they will have to face a Korea side who are virtually out of the tournament, but haven't been eliminated yet. The Taegeuk Warriors were very unlucky to lose to Sweden thanks to a penalty, but were thoroughly outplayed by Mexico in their second game.

Still, Tottenham star Son Heung-min's brilliant late effort ensured they at least scored their first goal of this tournament, and while they're the obvious underdogs against Germany, this World Cup has shown that an underdog can upset the odds. Just ask Croatian fans who are still celebrating their shock 3-0 win over Argentina en route to eventually finishing the tournament's "Group of Death" as group winners, with three wins out of three.

In short, Korea aren't out of the tournament yet. If they can beat Germany (by a decisive score-line) and Mexico beat Sweden, things could get pretty dicey. Matchday three, then, is shaping up to be as interesting as fans and neutrals could possibly hope for!
