World Cup 2018: Germans Hope Got Alive with the Last Minute’s Drama

The World Cup will go ahead and how Germany will not be there. In fact, football god himself didn’t want that as well. So the Germans saved their World Cup hopes with a free kick at the very last minute of the added time. Germany, who lost their first match of the World Cup against Mexico, kept the second position in F group with a 2-1 win over Sweden.

Germany started the match with the total control of ball possession. At the beginning of the match, the statistics were also in favour of the Germans. Germany lost only once in a World Cup match against Sweden.  That was also was back in 1958. But the pressure from the previous game was reflected in the whole team. Because of that, the Germans were about to concede an early goal from a counter-attack from Sweden. Swedish striker Marcus Berg, who entered into the German D-box in the 21st minute of the match, but Germany somehow survived with a determined tackle from Jerome Boateng and Manuel Neuer.

However, they survived in that occasion, but Swedish striker Ola Toivonen scored an excellent goal in the 31st minute of the match. Seeing his extraordinary finishing, who will say that this striker was goalless for his last 23 appearances for his club in this 2017-18 season. Just before the break of the first half, Sweden created another excellent goalscoring opportunity, but German goalkeeper Neuer became the savior for his team once again. Germany went to the break with a  fear of being dropped out of the World Cup from the group stage.

Germany has begun to play in the second half with enormous pressure on their shoulder. History was not in favor of the Germans either. After 1974, the Germans have never won a World Cup game after falling behind. Germany returned to their familiar gameplay from the start of the second half. Marco Ruiz scored the equalizer in the 48th minute of the match and they came back strongly.

After that, Germany continued their attacking gameplay. But they couldn’t able to find the Swedish net. Meanwhile, German defender Boateng left the field in the 82nd minute after seeing his second yellow card. Germany became a 10-men team.

At the end of the 90 minutes, the match officials added 5 minutes of injury time. That extra 5 minute was about to end. Just then Germany got a free kick on the left corner of Sweden’s D box. That was the last chance for the Germans to win the match. In fact, Tony Kross and Marco Reus pair used it with the possible best they have got. Reus conveniently sets the place for Kroos’s short pass, and then Kroos curls it into the Swedish far post, beyond the reach of goalkeeper Olsen. Defending champions Germany left the field with an astonishing win over Sweden.

In the other match of the day, Mexico won their second match against South Korea and confirmed their place in the second round. But you have to wait until 27 June to know who will join from the F group.    Defending champion Germans must have to win against South Korea. Whatever, that will not enough for them. They have to keep a close look at Sweden-Mexico match. They have to pray for Swedish’s defeat. And if Sweden wins, then who is in ahead of the goal difference will be at the second round.

In that case, the betting odds are in favor of German’s as well. The betting odd for Germany-South Korea match is 16/1 and 13/2 for a draw. But the odds for Mexico-Sweden match is confusing for the Germans. Betting odds for Mexico-Sweden match is 7/5 and 23/10 for a draw.
