Tweets from when Germany went down 1-0 to Sweden

Germany suffered a shock defeat against Mexico in their opening Group F tie, with the reigning champions now set to face Sweden in a make-or-break second outing.

We've been watching video footage of England and they're a very tactical outfit, they recover ball possession very quickly, they speed up play very quickly and have a one-touch approach that is awesome. I think we'll need them.

Toni Kroos' last-minute victor for Germany against Sweden later on Saturday means Mexico need a point against Sweden in their final group match to guarantee progress. In a few days we play again and we have to win it.

"In spite of those of us who are Mexicans knowing that it is not offensive and isn't homophobic as Federation Internationale de Football Association see it, if there is a rule or something that bans it, it's great that it has been respected in this game and hopefully it'll continue during the World Cup", Guardado said. A point for a draw would have been enough to stay alive for the knockout stage, but the Germans would have needed help on the final day.

Mexico lead with six points from two games while South Korea have lost both matches and have only a remote mathematical chance of progressing.

"I told them to keep their calm in the next 45 minutes and to not start panicking and try to work long, high balls but to continue with short passes and go vertical to the wings and try to be incisive", Germany coach Joachim Loew told reporters.

"There's nothing unusual to get ready for that match", Sweden coach Janne Andersson said.

If you didn't catch his efforts against Germany, then take a look at the above.

"So I was very angry", he said.

Germany players celebrate after the match against Sweden.

Although they dominated possession against lacklustre opponents, Mexico also displayed their thrilling counter-attacking game with their second goal, when West Ham striker Hernandez added a neat finish to Hirving Lozano's surging run.

"We should not let ourselves be tempted by the situation and ignore a task, just because it's tempting to push forward", said centre-back Mats Hummels in Sochi in a thinly veiled dig.
