Germany Coach Low: How We Planned Comeback Win Vs Sweden

Sami Khedira

Germany's Toni Kroos emerged as the world champions' natural leader on Saturday, stepping up to guide them to a last-gasp 2-1 victory over Sweden kept them on course for the World Cup last 16.

Bit of a painful outcome for the boy Ludvig, but we're sure he'll be able to run it off eventually.

It also prevented South Korea being eliminated, although they need to beat Germany and for Mexico to beat Sweden to stand a chance of qualification. To add to their agony, Jerome Boateng was slapped with a red card and the Germans were down to 10 players.

"My players were exhausted at the end of the game and Marco (Reus) had cramps as early as 10 minutes before the end", Loew told reporters.

'Thank you so much but maybe we won't need it, ' the Juventus man said.

Hierro relieved as Spain pushed to limits by Iran
The Argentines drew their first game with Iceland 1-1, while the Croatians had a 2-0 win over Nigeria in their opening encounter. Despite their valiant display, Morocco will rue the unforgivable defending that made all their subsequent good work irrelevant.

"Mats Hummels will probably not be able to play".

Loew said he was hopeful Hummels, who has not trained in the past days, would be back in time for the game against South Korea to partner Antonio Ruediger.

His lacklustre form against Mexico, however, and the furore caused ahead of the tournament by a picture he took with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan had worked against him. A win for Germany and a loss or draw for Sweden will see them through to the next stage. 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. "We should have taken the lead in the opening minutes and we failed to do that (but) there is joy now", Kroos told reporters.

Khedira was also benched following a forgettable performance against Mexico for the world champions, with Marco Reus and Sebastian Rudy named in the starting XI.
