"When things aren't going your way, a player like him can be so important".

"We assume that they will also bet on counter-attacking and want to be defensive, tight and secure".

If South Korea beat Germany and Sweden lose to Mexico, three teams will be all square at one win and two losses, and they will have to count tiebreakers to determine the second place finisher behind Mexico.

He kept Germany alive in the World Cup and established himself as the undisputed leader of the team at a time when others of his generation had failed to do so.

Germany's 2-1 win over Sweden could turn out to be the cornerstone in the defending champions' Russian campaign, a memorable event that brought players together following their disastrous start.

Durmaz, who was born in Sweden to Assyrian parents who had emigrated from Turkey, played down the abuse. "Completely unacceptable", Sjostrand said, Reuters reported.

"As long as we win games, I don't care who scores", Werner - who stuck 13 times in the 2017-18 Bundesliga season - told the media. I will never let any racists destroy that pride.

Germany were in real danger of a group-stage exit from the tournament, with a draw only likely to give them a temporary reprieve, until Kroos curled in a 95th-minute free-kick to take the points last night. He said one has to have the "balls" to play like the way Germany did and made the comeback.

The holders fought back, with Marco Reus equalising early in the second half before Kroos's dramatic victor.

If Kroos' shot was deflected, a little too high, or didn't have the flawless whipping curl, Germany would be sitting with one point, needing a victory on its last group game and a lot of help to keep alive a streak of making the knockout round in every World Cup since 1938.
