Sweden boss Janne Andersson accuses Germany bench of 'rubbing in' win

Sweden boss Janne Andersson accuses Germany bench of 'rubbing in' win

After Mexico made it two wins from two, Stevie Nicol forecasts how far El Tri's work rate and quality can continue to take them in Russian Federation.

"Now we have to recover and we don't have much time before we have to beat Korea, when we have to play convincingly", said Kroos.

The Germans felt disaster coming when Ola Toinoven scored the first goal in the 32nd minute, giving the Swedes a 1-0 lead by half time.

Toni Kroos rescued holders Germany from the brink of an unthinkable early World Cup exit here on Saturday, curling home a sensational victor in the fifth minute of stoppage time to seal a 2-1 win over Sweden.

Brazil were the last country to retain the World Cup, in 1962, and Juventus midfielder Khedira responded to the prank by Expressen TV's Ludwig Holmberg by calming declaring: "Thank you, but we won't need them [the tickets]".

The Germans ran to Kroos and erupted in emotional relief.

Mexico is the only undefeated team remaining in Group F, but after Germany's comeback win over Sweden, El Tri will still need to get a result in its final match of the group stage to ensure that they make it through to the knockout round. "It was, but now of course we're happy because I think we also deserved the victory".

Germany coach Joachim Loew said he was not aware of any taunting. They can also advance with a draw if Germany lose to South Korea.

Insane as it seems, all four teams still have a chance to advance on the final day. "And in the second half the pressure built up more and more", he added.

A lesser man would have snapped in response to the cheeky question posed by one brazen reporter in the run-up to this weekend's clash between Germany and Sweden.

Two hours after Japanese coach Akira Nishino said he was ready to mark Mane with up to three players, the Liverpool forward laughingly shrugged off the attention. But when El Tri's squad did emerge before 10 p.m., it was to ask the fans to allow them to rest a little.

"I really have no say in this".

Now Tunisia surely needs a win to avoid eventual elimination.

Three of the last four world champions have failed to progress to the knockout stages in the immediate defence of their titles and Germany could well find themselves in that territory with anything other than a victory on Saturday evening.
