Brazil vs Tunisia, Mexico vs South Korea, Germany vs Sweden Match preview

Germany failed to score from 26 attempts against Mexico

Toni Kroos' injury-time victor against Sweden revived defending champions Germany's hopes of becoming the first side to retain the World Cup since Brazil in 1962.

"Now we need to try to find a way to win the last match", he said.

The Swedes watched the ball go in, mouths open in disbelief.

From there the Germans launched the attack that led to substitute Jimmy Durmaz tripping Timo Werner and conceding the free kick that set up the chance for Kroos to curl in the victor.

"Overall, we once again had phases where we played really well and didn't use our chances", said Kroos.

"Tomorrow will be a very important game and we want to give all of you a lot of satisfaction".

Kroos' goal from a set piece came in the fifth and final minute of injury time.

Reus connected with his knee to steer the ball home for the equalizer early in the second half to mark the beginning of a massive German offensive.

Now Germany has some control of what happens.

"How many times could he change his mind?" Last Friday, he said during a television interview that he opposed it. The Department of Homeland Security, and Sessions , later said the policy was not intended for deterrence.

"There's nothing odd to get ready for that match", Sweden coach Janne Andersson said. "We still have an excellent opportunity to qualify".

Carlos Vela put them ahead from the penalty spot in the 26th minute at Rostov Arena, which had been taken over by Mexico's sea of fanatical supporters.

Toivonen gave Sweden the lead, but Germany controlled every aspect by playing aggressive and attacking soccer. And in the second half the pressure built up more and more.

"Something that I did appreciate today was that we didn't lose our nerve, we didn't panic after going down after conceding a goal", Loew said. In the 89th minute, Germany's Mario Gomez was close to scoring with a superb header that was deflected by keeper Robin Olsen.

"There are so many feelings right now, this is probably the heaviest conclusion to a game that I have ever experienced in my career". There was a confrontation between members of both teams on the sideline at midfield and the two groups had to be separated.

In response he said: "I have no problem with that at all, I can live with it".

Andersson said he was annoyed by what he saw from the German celebration. "You cheer together, maybe, and you leave your opponents to feel sad, and that is the end of it". A loss to the Scandinavians would send the World Cup champions out at the group stage for the first time since France in 2002.

"We must prepare for the next game as if it is the last and get as far in the World Cup as we can".

"You shouldn't celebrate in front of our bench the way they did, that's disrespectful", Guidetti said.

Ilkay Gundogan replaced him, coming in alongside Kroos, but it was the Real Madrid man who was at fault as Sweden went in front just a minute later.
