Germany set to be without Hummels against Sweden

0shares

Forsberg played the full 90 minutes in Sweden's opening match and the RB Leipzig winger will be expected to start against Germany in Saturday's late game.

Sweden, meanwhile, began their campaign on a positive note as a second-half penalty from Andreas Granqvist secured a 1-0 win over South Korea. Die Mannschaft looked slow and out of position throughout the game as Mexico had success on the counter-attack.

It's understood that Joachim Low's decision to drop Ozil is purely a tactical change as the midfielder has trained without any problems this week.

Jonas Hector missed the Mexico match due to illness but has recovered and replaces Marvin Plattenhardt at left back.


Sweden probably should have scored more than one goal against South Korea. If the Manchester United center-back can not play, it would be a major blow to Sweden's defense.

Germany must avoid defeat to avoid the ignominy of being eliminated from the group stages for the first time since 1938, although they can take heart from the fact that they are unbeaten in their last seven meetings with the Swedes - won five, drawn two.
