You have to feel sorry for Sweden.
Toni Kroos was Germany’s hero after he produced a moment of magic to save Germany from the brink of World Cup elimination.
It took a free-kick in the 95th minute to beat Sweden as Joachim Low’s side were 2-1 winners on the night.
Kroos had the pressure of a nation on his shoulders when he stepped up in stoppage-time.
The Madrid man had been one of Germany’s worst performers on the night, giving the ball away in the buildup to Sweden’s opener through Ola Toivonen.
Kroos however made up for his mistake in the best way possible.
The goal sparked scenes of jubilation from supporters and from Germany coaching staff and substitutes on the touch-line.
The late winner was reminiscent of Ronaldo’s last-gasp free-kick against Spain which earned Portugal a 3-3 draw.
Kroos stepped up to the ball with the same confidence that CR7 had before his strike.
Just when it looked all but over for the four-times world champions, Germany’s fate is now back in their own hands.
Joachim Low’s side will come up against group minnows South Korea in their final game, whilst Sweden face Mexico.
You can never rule out Germany.
