Three players, including starting central defender Pontus Jansson, remained in Gelendzhik on Friday after becoming ill with a stomach bug while the rest of the team flew to Sochi.

Meanwhile, the Asian side will be under pressure after going down 0-1 to Sweden on Monday and are facing the prospect of being eliminated at the group stage in a second consecutive World Cup. Now the defending champions are ready to get back to winning and secure a spot in the second round.

"The mood has improved a lot. Whether we knock them out is one thing, but we can qualify on our own which is quite extraordinary".

"He will most likely not be able to play", Low said.

Ex-Germany stars Lothar Matthaeus and Stefan Effenberg said Khedira should be dropped after his woeful display.

In first-half stoppage time, after a rapid Swedish counter-attack, Viktor Claesson opted to cut inside rather than shoot first time and a presentable opening for a second goal was lost. "We expect them to arrive tomorrow instead". "That was not the team we know against Mexico".

Germany looked down and out but Kroos produced an injury time victor to redeem himself after a first half error gifted Sweden an opener. "So right now I can feel there's a positive tension and focus on the team".

Loew made four changes for their game against Sweden, leaving out Mesut Ozil among other, but Jerome Boateng's red card, Sebastian Rudy's broken nose and fatigue among his player will see him field a different lineup on Wednesday.

Germany now face a decisive final tie with South Korea to seal their passage into the last 16. Even South Korea after two losses could still advance with a win over Germany and help from Mexico.

"Happy of course. It was a tough game again today for us", Kroos said. "If the players bring to the pitch their talent and their idea and their abilities, then we will prevail".

'I think we all have the common goal of having a successful World Cup after a disappointing start: the team, the fans, the clubs, the whole of German football stands together'.
