World Cup Group F: Germany, Mexico, Sweden, South Korea

The ESPN FC panel discuss Group F, which contains Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea.

Defending champions Germany shouldn't fear anyone. Qualifying was a cakewalk with 10 straight wins and after lifting the Confederations Cup, they won't be fazed by what lies ahead.

Two of their games last summer were in Kazan and Sochi, where the Germans face Sweden and South Korea in 2018. Adaptation won't be as big a problem for them as it is for South Korea and the Swedes.

Mexico also know what to expect following their participation in the Confederations Cup, too. What will they have learned...

Should Zlatan Ibrahimovic return for Sweden at the 2018 World Cup?

Should Zlatan stay or go? It might seem simple but there's a compelling argument on both sides.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could return for Zweden... sorry, Sweden... at the World Cup. Here are two open letters why he should/shouldn't come back.

PLEASE COME BACK, ZLATAN

Hello Zlatan,

The 1-0 victory over Italy in the playoffs means that your beloved Blagult will enjoy their first World Cup since 2006 but it also means that you simply must -- I repeat MUST -- un-retire and come back to help lead them to glory. Or, at worst, a quarterfinal defeat on penalties to Belgium.

I know you're already thinking...

Reliving Zlatan Ibrahimovic's wonder goal against England five years later

Remember where you were five years ago when you saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic score THIS goal against England?

With 12 minutes remaining of a friendly against Sweden in Stockholm, five years ago this week, England were 2-1 up and playing pretty well. Considering this was a fairly experimental team, with Roy Hodgson giving debuts to six different players, and they were still getting over the relative chaos left by Euro 2012 and its build-up, it was looking like a decent evening for England. Then Zlatan Ibrahimovic happened.

There were plenty of other reasons to make this friendly notable: it was Steven...

Zlatan celebrates Sweden's qualification for 2018 World Cup

As you might have heard, Sweden battled their way to the 2018 World Cup at the expense of Italy after hammering out a 0-0 draw in the second leg of their playoff.

Unsurprisingly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic found himself centre stage after the match despite not playing any part in the qualification campaign, largely because he retired from international football over a year ago.

Still, the veteran striker injected himself into the celebrations by posting a photo of the victorious Swedish team on social media,...

Italy stunned as Sweden beat Azzurri on aggregate to reach World Cup

Watch the reaction of Italy's players after the four-time world champions missed qualifying for a 15th straight World Cup.

MILAN, Italy -- Here are three quick thoughts from Italy's 0-0 draw with Sweden in the second leg of their World Cup qualifying playoff that saw the Swedes qualify for next summer's World Cup in Russia.

1. Italy stunned as Sweden reach World Cup

Four-time world champions Italy will miss Russia 2018 after Gian Piero Ventura's team failed to score in two legs against Sweden, enabling the Scandinavians to qualify for next summer's tournament with a 1-0 aggregate playoff victory.

In a stunned San...

Italy aim for 15th consecutive World Cup appearance in playoff vs. Sweden

Sweden's Sebastian Larsson and Italy's Giorgio Chiellini clashed in Euro 2016 and may do so again on Friday.

Italy will continue their attempt to qualify for a 15th consecutive World Cup and 19th overall when they visit suburban Stockholm to face Sweden in the first leg of the UEFA playoff round on Friday.

The Azzurri, who have not missed the World Cup since 1958, would match Germany for the second-most World Cup appearances of all time if they were to advance.

They have not needed to qualify for the World Cup through the playoff since 1998, when they defeated Russia 2-1 on aggregate. Italy later won their...
