South Korea v Mexico: Germany's conquerors set for role reversal

South Korea v Mexico: Germany's conquerors set for role reversal
Jung Woo-young says South Korea are braced to tackle a Mexico side set to play a more attacking style after El Tri stunned holders Germany at the World Cup. South Korea are in urgent need of a positive result, having lost 1-0 to Sweden in their first game of Group F in Russia. In Rostov-on-Don on Saturday, they will meet a Mexico team enjoying an unexpectedly commanding position following their stunning success against Joachim Low's defending champions. But, according to Jung, El Tri are unlikely to employ the same counter-attacking approach at Rostov Arena, where Juan Carlos Osorio's side will justifiably be considered the favourites.  "Mexico have quick players who are good in one-on-one situations and like to penetrate [the opposition's defence]," the midfielder said. "Compared to the match against Germany, I believe Mexico will play differently against us. Of course, we're also not going to [play] like Germany. "You can compare the two teams on paper, but we know we have to produce results that can [disprove] people's predictions.  "We're not thinking about whether we are less talented or not a better team [than] Mexico.  "We just think about how we can stop Mexico from playing their style of game." Mexico coach Osorio confirmed Jung's assessment, calling on his players to demonstrate their quality on the big stage as they seek to secure passage to the round of 16.  "It's time for Mexico to show that we can take the initiative," he said. "There is a big difference between playing against Germany or [another] powerhouse. We are, supposedly, superior to our opponents. We have to impose our [own] conditions " We're ready for today's training session.

Germany should drop Ozil - Effenberg

Germany should drop Ozil - Effenberg
Mesut Ozil should be benched for Germany's second World Cup group game against Sweden, according to Stefan Effenberg. Arsenal midfielder Ozil played the full 90 minutes as Germany slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Mexico in their Group F opener – the side's first competitive defeat since their semi-final exit from Euro 2016 when they lost 2-0 to France. Effenberg questioned Germany head coach Joachim Low's decision not to include second-half substitute Marco Reus in his starting line-up, calling for the Borussia Dortmund man to be in from the outset against Sweden. "Low should put Ozil on the bench and bring in Marco Reus instead," Effenberg wrote in his column on t-online.de. "I could not understand why Reus did not play against Mexico from the start. "If what Reus said after the game, that he was earmarked for the 'important games', is true, then the coach has completely misjudged this. "The most important game was that against the strongest group opponent: Mexico." Sure, we made too many mistakes yesterday. We have to improve now. The match against Sweden will already be our first final. #M1Ö #Worldcup #Russia2018 pic.twitter.com/FJXPOpXkqX — Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) June 18, 2018 Effenberg also called for Ilkay Gundogan to be drafted into the team to help Toni Kroos, who he said was marked out of the game against Mexico. Juventus' Sami Khedira is the man Effenberg would have Low drop for Manchester City star Gundogan, who he says would offer more creativity in midfield. "The key to Mexico was that Kroos was taken out of the game with man-marking," added Effenberg. "He could not play with his usual rhythm. "Khedira would have had to help Kroos in this case, take over the role and make the game fast, but he didn't do that. Therefore, the logical consequence would be that he no longer plays against Sweden, as they will do that in a similar way. "In place of Khedira, Ilkay Gundogan should play. The team simply needs dangerous balls from the central area to the top - that was completely missing against Mexico. "Gundogan is a player who can play such passes."

Nabil Fekir could end up at ANOTHER Premier League club after Liverpool move collapsed

They have set their asking price which Jurgen Klopp’s side fell short of in negotiations.

Kop bosses were willing to pay £53million which took into account results of his medical following a serious knee injury earlier in his career.

But top-six clubs rivals are still able to snap him up in a summer where his value could soar at the World Cup.

Chelsea are Tottenham are in the market for an attacking midfielder like Fekir over Manchester City, who have targeted Riyad Mahrez, or Manchester United.

Meanwhile, France Football Federation president Noel le Graet the breakdown of the star’s switch to Anfield will not effect him at the World Cup.

Le Graet said: “It would be better for him if his transfer was recorded before the departure for Russia, but he did not seem disturbed to me.

“I felt optimistic about it because the medical visit he had was positive.

“In a transfer, it’s always like that. Each one tries to impose its price, to lower it, or to increase it.”
