Lineker lavishes back-handed praise on Germans after late victory over Sweden

"Something that I did appreciate was that we didn't lose our nerve, we didn't panic after going down". But the Germans tied it up in the 48th minute off a goal from Reus, and Kroos's victor changes the equation entirely.

"Thank you, but we won't need them".

"We know Sweden are tough when they play at their best but we also know that we have a strong team and we are sure we will win this match". From a almost impossible angle on the left side of the penalty area, Kroos rolled the ball forward to Reus on the restart, creating an ever so slightly wider angle from which to curl his shot toward the far post. And after two matches each, no team has been eliminated, with all four of Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea still alive.

"We still have an excellent opportunity to qualify and we will do everything to achieve that", Andersson said.

With Germany getting in behind Sweden's full backs at will and fizzing passes across the box, it looked like a matter of time before they scored, but Toivonen's goal gave Sweden breathing space. 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. "Now we have to clean up, tidy up after this game".

"There are so many feelings right now, this is probably the heaviest conclusion to a game that I have ever experienced in my career".

Under-fire Germany star Sami Khedira on Thursday laughed off a cheeky offer of early flights home for the holders from a Swedish reporter ahead of their crunch World Cup clash.

Senegal striker Sadio Mane said his team was ready for Japanese efforts to neutralise him in Sunday's World Cup clash and reminded his opponents there is more to the African side than just one player.
