Yep, that was a fun one.
We're also set up for Mexico to suffer a devastating elimination. They're in as bad of a position as you can be in while having won both games. If Germany beats South Korea by multiple goals and Sweden beats Mexico by any score, Mexico is out.
If Germany and Sweden win, they'll all have 6 points. If Germany wins by multiple goals, they'd be at least +2 on goal differential. If Sweden beats Mexico by one goal, Germany would be +2 at least, Sweden and Mexico would be +1. Germany would go through as group winner and Mexico would be out on H2H with Sweden.
It's a lot, but I don't think it's crazy for Germany to beat South Korea by 2+ and Sweden to beat Mexico.
In Theo we trust.
