Germany coach Joachim Loew vows
to avoid mistakes against Sweden

SOCHI Russia (Xinhua) -- Coach Joachim Loew Friday said Germany will avoid the mistakes in the crunch World Cup game against Sweden to be slated on Saturday.

"It hurts, that goes without saying," Loew said of their opener against Mexico.

"We’ve really analyzed those mistakes in the opener, we’ve talked about that and the team will adopt right measures to stop them in the next game."

Germany lost to Mexico in the group opener and a defeat to Sweden in the second round can eliminate the defending champions from the ongoing World Cup.

Sweden and Mexico are tied atop Group F with three points each. Germany and South Korea have zero points.

Loew admitted that Sweden is strong, but he believes that Germany can overcome the challenges.

"We should not start doubting our style of play," Loew said.

"If the players bring to the pitch their talent, their idea and their abilities, we can beat anybody."

UPDATE:

Germany defender Hummels likely to miss game against Sweden due to injury

SOCHI Russia (Xinhua) -- Defending champions Germany are likely to be playing without centre-back Mats Hummels in Saturday’s crunch World Cup clash against Sweden, Germany coach Joachim Loew confirmed on Friday.

"Mats Hummels will probably will be possibly missing the game against Sweden.

"He injured his neck in a training session yesterday and we don’t see any improvement overnight," Loew said at Friday’s pre-game press conference.

Loew said that Germany will especially need defenders who are strong in the air against the tall Swedes, but now it "makes no sense for him to play".

Germany will come into Saturday’s game aiming for nothing but a win after their opening loss to Mexico in Group F actions.
