Germany will be without Sebastian Rudy for Wednesday's decisive World Cup match against South Korea as the holding midfielder is still not fit after breaking his nose in the dramatic victory over Sweden, coach Joachim Loew said Tuesday.With center-back Jerome Boateng suspended Wednesday after being sent off against the Swedes, Loew said he was down to 18 players for the match at the Kazan Arena.Rudy had replaced out-of-form World Cup winner Sami Khedira in the midfield in Russia as Loew put more emphasis on defense to try and stem the number of goals they have been conceding.At the other end of the field, Loew suggested striker Thomas Mueller, who is goalless after two games having scored 10 in two previous World Cups, would be retained.
