Germany midfielder Sebastian Rudy has been ruled out of the team's final World Cup group game against South Korea after suffering multiple fractures to his nose.

Coach Joachim Low said on Tuesday that Rudy has not recovered after undergoing surgery.

Rudy was forced to leave the pitch during Germany's 2-1 win over Sweden after taking a boot to his face in the first half.

Low said it wouldn't make sense to make the midfielder play with a protective mask because "it's two or three days too early."

The German coach will also be without defender Jerome Boateng, who is suspended after getting sent off against Sweden.

Germany are guaranteed to qualify for the last 16 if they beat South Korea on Wednesday by at least two goals.
