Swedish team unite against racism after online abuse

Mesut Ozil

Sweden and Germany are both on three points with leaders Mexico on six heading into the final group games meaning there is all to play for - including, mathematically, for bottom team South Korea who are without a point.

"A number of complaints have been made with the Swedish FA as the plaintiff so that Jimmy can concentrate on what he is here to do - play football".

"We assume that they will also bet on counter-attacking and want to be defensive, tight and secure".

Toni Kroos's last-gasp victor ensured that Germany remain right in World Cup contention but the holders are not yet safe from the threat of an ignominious group-stage exit. When Bulgaria's Iordan Letchkov knocked out Germany 2-1 with a powerful header in the quarterfinal of the 1994 World Cup, the neutral world rejoiced with certain schadenfreude.

Even South Korea after two losses could still advance with a win over Germany and help from Mexico.

The Swedes take on Mexico in Ekaterinburg, at the same time as Germany face South Korea in Kazan. Coach Janne Andersson told the media that they wanted to discuss the "completely unacceptable" situation that developed after the match.

Sweden player of Turkish origin Jimmy Durmaz was subjected to a storm of racial hatred and threats on social media after giving away the free kick that led to Toni Kroos's late victor for Germany in their Group F World Cup clash on Saturday. I will never let any racists destroy my pride.

"Having said that, we shouldn't watch the opposition too closely - we need to focus on ourselves". "We must all stand against all forms of racism".

Sweden has just two goals for the tournament, by Andreas Granqvist and Ola Toivonen.

Germany's Ilkay Gundogan, left, and Sweden's Marcus Berg challenge for the ball during the group F match between Germany and Sweden at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Fisht Stadium in Sochi, Russia, Saturday, June 23, 2018. "We will probably require a day of rest and then we will start preparing for South Korea".

"We know that some past world champions have not survived the group stage at their next World Cup but we will do everything so that it does not happen to us", the winger, playing in his first World Cup, said.
