Sweden's Janne Andersson: Only 'emotionally dead' could have resisted Germany provocation

Germany's midfielder Mesut Ozil gestures as he sits on the field during their 2018 World Cup Group F match against Mexico at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow Joachim Low Insists That Mesut Ozil Will Still Have an Important Role for Germany at the World Cup

The KFA official questioned why the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system was not used to review the incident, which South Korea coach Shin Tae-yong described as "100 percent a foul".

Thomas Muller (93) is the only member of Germany's World Cup squad who has won more caps than the former Real Madrid man (91).

- Sweden have not defeated a North or Central American nation since their home World Cup in 1958, when they beat Mexico.

Four years after Spain became just the fifth champions sent packing after a disastrous group-stage campaign, Joachim Loew's pre-tournament favourites could still be stopped at the first round for the first time since 1938.

However, they may still need points to secure a place in the round of 16 for a seventh consecutive World Cup.

Germany's path to the second round is littered with obstacles.


Yekaterinburg - Sweden coach Janne Andersson ramped up his verbal attack on Germany on Tuesday, calling the behaviour of some of their staff in celebrating their last-gasp victor "scornful".

There was a confrontation between the two teams on the final whistle, with Germany's victory meaning Sweden needs to defeat Mexico on Wednesday in Ekaterinburg, unless Die Mannschaft slips up against South Korea.

"Against South Korea we will all know what is at stake and what our common goal is".

If Germany and Sweden draw their games, the team in the higher-scoring game will finish second.

The Borussia Dortmund forward missed Brazil 2014 with torn ankle ligaments, Euro 2016 with a groin problem and Germany's 2017 Confederations Cup triumph with torn knee ligaments. "Of course Khedira and Ozil still might play". We've come together as a group and have given Jimmy full support. They played two games and have two wins and well done.
