Twitter reacts to Germany's game-winning goal against Sweden

All Germany's other players are fit going into the match with the Swedes, who have not beaten the Germans for 40 years and last came out on top in a World Cup match 60 years ago.

Speaking of the decisive goal scored by Toni Kroos in the 95th minute, he welcomed the fact that it had been scored "at the last opportunity of the match", and added "my goal was luck, Toni's was world class".

Enter Toni Kroos - the hero of the day.

Supporters watching on big screens at the Brandenburg Gate huddled nervously under grey clouds and drizzle, before throwing their umbrellas away as Toni Kroos' late victor saved Germany.

"We missed a couple of good chances but I appreciated the spirit of the team, we never lost hope of winning the match".

The EU said that if the US retaliates, it's prepared to slap additional tariffs on 160 USA products worth roughly $4.3 billion. The president has held up the motorcycle maker as an example of a USA business harmed by trade barriers in other countries.

Fueled with confidence from their opening World Cup victory over Germany, Mexico strolled to a 2-1 win over South Korea on Saturday - with their first goal coming from a penalty.

A national team official said the exact nature or severity of Ki's injury wasn't yet known and that the player will have to undergo further tests. "When you look at the images, of course, the first impression is not that positive". Overall, Germany also completed 86 percent of their 744 passes, with Kroos completing 117 of his 128 - the second-most completed by a player in Russian Federation this month.

Centre-back Victor Lindelof returns to an otherwise unchanged Sweden side following his recovery from an illness that kept him out of their opening 1-0 win over South Korea. South Korea, with zero points, could even advance. Joachim Loew's decision to drop Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil wasn't a resounding success as Germany struggled to create chances and were opened up on the counter-attack just as they were in defeat by Mexico. What's already been a shaky defense will be without Jerome Boateng, who picked up a red card. But Germany's win changes that big time. "Rudy could potentially play on Wednesday but we will need to wait and see". "The players at the end of the match, and that became very visible, were exhausted", Loew said.

"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.
