Toni Kroos rescued Germany with a late free-kick goal against Sweden and while things are looking much better for the reigning world champions, they still need to take care of business against South Korea. The good news for Kroos and Co. is that South Korea are already eliminated from the tournament, so their coach might decide to give his reserves a chance to at least feature in the World Cup.
Still, Germany will most likely finish second in this Group Stage, something which could potentially force them to play against England in the Round of 16, a quality matchup in such an early stage of the competition.
Knowing that Joachim Low has a deep squad, he could decide to make some rotations in order to rest his starters after two tough games against Mexico and Sweden. However, Kroos has been so crucial to Germany’s aspirations that he might just not rest at all.
