Germany and South Korea both have hopes of advancing to the 2018 World Cup knockout rounds, and both of their chances of doing so go up markedly if they win by multiple goals.
South Korea make four changes to the team that lost to Mexico. Out go Min-Woo Kim, Ki Sung-Yeung, Hwang Hee-chan and Ju Se-Jong, income Yun Young-sun, Hong Chul, Koo Ja-Cheol and Jung Woo-young.
Germany makes five changes to the team that beat Sweden. Mats Hummels replaces the suspended Franz Beckenbauer Jerome Boateng and Niklas Sule will partner him in central defense after replacing Antonio Rudiger. In midfield Sami Khedira returns for the injured Sebastian Rudy, Leon Goretzka replaces the struggling Thomas Muller and in the attack, Mesut Ozil comes back for the flimsy Julian Draxler.
South Korea: Cho; Yong Lee, Yun, Kim Young-Gwon, Hong; Jang, Jung, Koo; Lee Jae-sung, Moon, Son.
Germany: Neuer; Kimmich, Hummels, Sule, Hector; Khedira, Goretzka, Kroos; Reus, Werner, Ozil.
