Germany recall Arsenal's Mesut Ozil for their World Cup group match against South Korea.

Germany have made five changes to their starting XI for this afternoon's decisive World Cup group match against South Korea.

Manager Joachim Low has recalled Arsenal's Mesut Ozil after dropping him for the 2-1 win over Sweden, drafting him into the midfield in place of Sebastian Rudy.

In defence, Jerome Boateng misses out after picking up a red card against the Swedes, paving the way for the fit-again Mats Hummels to return to the lineup.

South Korea head coach Shin Tae-yong has made four changes to his XI, with Koo Ja-Cheol starting up front alongside Son Heung-min and Jung Woo-young replacing injured captain Ki Sung-yueng.

Left-back Hong Chul comes in for Kim Min-woo, while centre-back Yun Young-sun makes his first appearance of the campaign.

South Korea: Woo Choo; Lee Yong, Yun, Hong, YG Kim; Jang, Jung, Koo, Lee Jae-Sung; Moon, Son
Subs: Seung-gyu, Seung-Hyun, Ban-Suk, Joo-Ho, Se-Jong, Shin-Wook, Seung-Woo, Hee-Chan, Min-Woo, Sung-yueng, Jin-hyeon, Yo-Han

Germany: Neuer; Kimmich, Hummels, Sule, Hector; Khedira, Kroos; Ozil, Goretzka, Reus; Werner
Subs: Plattenhardt, Ginter, Draxler, Trapp, Muller, Rudiger, Rudy, Brandt, Gundogan, ter Stegen, Gomez
