In defence, Jerome Boateng will be replaced by his Bayern Munich teammates Mats Hummels, who will return to the team following his absence against Sweden.
Jimmy Durmaz and the rest of the Sweden squad took a powerful stand against racism as the nation's football association made complaints of online abuse on behalf of the winger to police.
"Son is up there with the best in the world, we have to keep an eye on him".
Despite Kroos' late heroics on Saturday, Germany have left themselves in a position where a place in the round of 16 could still be snatched from them regardless of their result against South Korea.
"I try to look at life as a great opportunity; it is going to be a great match". We have a chance, and a good chance.
Germany were on the brink against Sweden, but having picked up a vital win, Kevin Hatchard expects them to finally hit top gear.
It all comes down to Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET on the final matchday, as Germany faces South Korea and Mexico takes on Sweden. Shin has to find a way to get Tottenham forward Son more support in attack - he had eight shots against Mexico, and carried the entire offensive burden on his shoulders.
Another Germany player to have been criticised for his performances in Russian Federation is Thomas Muller, and Low saluted his willingness to self-evaluate during a "long chat" they had earlier in the tournament.
"We were criticised a lot, justifiably so in part, and a lot of people in Germany would have been pleased if we had gone out today", said Kroos, who admitted there is still room for improvement.
They do still have an outside shot of qualifying if they win - they'll need Sweden to lose to Mexico as well, in which case they, Germany, and Sweden will be tied on three points, with goal difference coming into play.
Mexico have never won three consecutive matches at the World Cup and could become the first CONCACAF team to achieve this feat in World Cup history.
Despite long odds, Javier Hernández believes that Mexico might win the World Cup. We have all to gain and win and mentally we are very, very strong.
Mexico have only lost one of their last five matches against the Swedes (W2 D2), though they've all been friendlies.
