Germany shocks Sweden with last-minute goal

Germany shocks Sweden with last-minute goal

The other match of the Group F will be between South Korea and Mexico, with South Koreans also in a must-win situation.

The celebration was a rare display of such emotion from the German global, who went through a range of emotions in Sochi on Saturday night.

Sweden had scored in the first half on a clever counterattack, and with its one goal secured, chose to settle into some of the most defensive football seen at the World Cup so far.

Day 10 of the 2018 World Cup brings us two matches from Group F: South Korea vs Mexico and Germany vs Sweden.

Germany, who had influential defender Jerome Boateng sent off for a second yellow card, were far from convincing and put in a nervous display after a barrage of criticism following defeat to Mexico.

Serbia vs. Brazil - Football Match Report
As Group E winners, Brazil will now face Mexico in Samara on Monday, with group runners-up Switzerland taking on Sweden in St. Serbia again set off alarm bells moments later, but some desperate Brazil defending was enough to keep them out.

"Of course, the first goal (by Sweden) was my fault".

Germany staved off an early World Cup exit by the finest of margins thanks to Toni Kroos's brilliant stoppage-time goal, but continue to trail an impressive Mexico side in Group F.

Carlos Vela gave Mexico the lead with that penalty after Korean defender Jang Hyun-soo blocked Andres Guardado's cross with his arm inside the area, before the nation's all-time leading goalscorer Javier Hernandez doubled their lead in the second half with his 50th worldwide goal.

Mexico avoided a letdown Saturday after upsetting Germany to start the tournament, handling South Korea by a 2-1 score But Mexico (six points) isn't safe yet.

Enter Toni Kroos - the hero of the day.

Who wins Group G if England and Belgium draw?
John Stones also scored two and Jesse Lingard scored England's third goal. I just thought we were a little anxious at the start.

Man of the Match: While Roos will receive all the glory, Reus helped set the pace for Germany and nixed all of Sweden's momentum with his goal.

President Moon was photographed after the match consoling Son, tearful at the team's impending elimination from the tournament.

Germany pressed hard for the victor but it looked like Sweden had held out until Kroos curled in a free kick from a right angle to spark scenes of huge relief among the Germans.

Neuer saved the Germans from being 2-0 down at halftime, diving acrobatically to deflect Berg's header from Sebastian Larsson's stoppage-time free kick.

Mexico, which upset defending champion Germany in its opening match, took the lead when Vela converted from the penalty spot in the 26th minute. South Korea, meanwhile, will be eliminated if Sweden wins or draws. While a late goal from South Korea made the score close, the game, in reality, wasn't. Now, the group is wide open.
