Late Kroos Goal Secured Germany’s World Cup Hope

Germany’s World Cup hope remain alive and well thanks to their dramatic late 2-1 victory over Sweden this weekend.

Knowing the need to pick up all three points so they won’t lose their hope of advancing into the knock out stage, Germany put on an aggressive approach since kick off.

Joachim Low’s men started off brightly as they created many chances early on, while dominating possession with an ease.

Sweden themselves were merely playing on the counter, but they did set things in such smart manner as everything they were able to go forward, the Scandinavian side looked dangerous.

Despite dominating the game, Die Mannschaft’s clumsy defending puts them under serious trouble as they found themselves trailing again in the first half through Ola Toivonen’s effort on 32 minutes.

Having to chase the game from behind again didn’t lower German’s beliefs as they continue to push on and got themselves back on level terms soon after the restart through Marco Reus’ finish inside the penalty area.

Wasting several chances and even got themselves playing with just 10-men following Jerome Boateng’s sending off, Low’s side never really gave things up as they kept on attacking  until the very end.

Eventually, Germany’s never say day attitude was rewarded as deep in stoppage time they found that dramatic winner, thanks to Toni Kroos wonderful free kick.

That win basically opens up everything in group F as with both Germany and Sweden in three points, even current leader, Mexico could still go out from the tournament if El Tri loss their final match against Janne Andersson’s side.
