Kroos made 144 touches against Sweden, which was a new record for a German player in the World Cup since 1966.

Hummels missed Saturday's dramatic 2-1 win over Sweden through injury, but was able to return to training on Monday.

"If you've had this your entire life then it's not a big deal".

Mexico are in a commanding position at the top of Group F, although Germany's dramatic late victor in a 2-1 victory over Sweden means, should results go against them on the final matchday, El Tri could yet fail to progress.

If South Korea do manage to progress beyond the group stage, it will become the first team to qualify for the last-16 of the World Cup after losing its first two game since the tournament was expanded to 32 countries in 1998. "But when we play a team that sit as deep as Sweden did, playing wide allows you to pick up some more momentum running at defenders".

"We will do everything we can, and be as smart as we can with the ball and without it", said Sweden winger Emil Forsberg, whose team won its opener 1-0 against South Korea.

Kroos had earlier gifted the Swedes a goal when his back pass was intercepted.


"If we have this (VAR) system it is is unfortunate he (Marciniak) feels so secure in the live situation he doesn't go and have a look".

"This is unbelievable, unforgettable, it fills me with pride and happiness", said Lozano, who according to reports in the Spanish media has attracted interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Meanwhile, in Group F's following match, Germany shocked the world with a thrilling comeback against Sweden. "It's going to be extremely hard to stop us from advancing out of the group", he said.

Germany, who lost their opener in Russian Federation to Mexico, need to beat South Korea by a two-goal margin to be sure of reaching the last 16.

They are level on three points with Sweden with exactly the same goal difference.

"Within a few minutes, they apologised to the organisational lead of the Swedish team and also to Sweden's coach". That would make the match against South Korea a must win for Germany. "There was a lot of feelings, we had just let in a goal and lost the game, so it was pretty sour", Jansson said.
