Day 10 of the 2018 World Cup brings us two matches from Group F: South Korea vs Mexico and Germany vs Sweden.

Alexander Hassenstein/Getty ImagesThe reigning World Cup champions had their backs against the wall against a stubborn Swedish defense, but Germany broke through at the last possible moment to keep their dreams of a repeat title alive.

Belgium, meanwhile, produced one of the few free-scoring performances of the tournament so far with Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard in fine form for the Red Devils.

Prediction: It won't be easy or pretty, but Germany will win it. Switzerland came from behind to beat Serbia in a 2-1 win.

"We should not start doubting our style of play", Loew said. "We are going to clean up, catch up and we have every chance of qualifying on Wednesday for the knockout stage", he added.

That was until Nationalelf reminded everyone why they are the defending World Cup champions. The World Cup final takes place in Moscow on 15 July.

After starting slow against Panama in the opener, Belgium was lethal for most of the match against Tunisia on Saturday, cruising to a 5-2 victory that leaves them close to the round of 16. "But I think we've shown a team spirit here despite Sweden going up 1-0".

There will be even more changes against South Korea.

Work still needs to be done with Mexico needing to avoid defeat against Sweden to be sure of making the last 16 for the seventh straight World Cup.

Germany midfielder Toni Kroos scored a dramatic late victor to come from behind and beat Sweden 2-1 on Day 10 of the World Cup after the defending champions were reduced to 10 men.

The other match of the Group F will be between South Korea and Mexico, with South Koreans also in a must-win situation.

Players said they had some blunt and honest conversations after the loss.

Mexican fans celebrate at the Angel of Independence monument in Mexico City, Mexico on June 23, 2018 following Mexico's win against South Korea.

Insane as it seems, all four teams still have a chance to advance on the final day.

"All I am saying is people behaved in ways you don't, you cheer when you win, you leave the opponents to feel sad, you don't react in the way they did".
