Why journalist handed Khedira boarding pass

Sami Khedira said his team-mates remain focused on beating Sweden

Germany's Marco Reus celebrates scoring their first goal with Thomas Muller as Sweden's Andreas Granqvist and team mates look dejected during the World Cup's Group F match Germany vs Sweden in Fisht Stadium in Sochi, Russia on June 23, 2018.

Germany earned a free kick in the 95th minute of the match, and Kroos blasted it home into the upper-right corner of the goal from a hard angle. And certainly after going down to 10-men, Kroos' curling strike in the fifth minute of stoppage time to secure Germany's win was unexpected.

After famously ousting Italy in a play-off to qualify, Sweden's 1-0 win over South Korea in their opening game has left them in a strong position in Group F.

"We have to play more intelligently, not like schoolboys", said Khedira.

"This is probably the heaviest conclusion to a match I've had in my career, but the whole group is still alive so we'll have to lick our wounds and come back for the next match", said Sweden coach Janne Andersson. "It is an extraordinary opportunity to be involved in a World Cup match like this", he said.

Saudi Arabia vs Egypt: Record-breaking keeper saves penalty, but Pharaohs sink

Uruguay hands Russian Federation record World Cup defeat
Saudi Arabia won 2-1 in the match vs Egypt on Monday in the last game of the FIFA World Cup 2018 group stage. Uruguay is perhaps the only Group A team capable of stopping Russia's onslaught of goals.

It begins, however, with what should be a one sided Group G affair, as Belgium take on Tunisia. "We will see what the final session yields". Belgium has six points, while England has three, and Panama and Tunisia both have zero.

Toni Kroos says his dramatic late winning goal against Sweden will upset many of Germany's critics at home whom he believes were rooting for die Mannschaft to be eliminated from the World Cup.

Son Heung-min scored a consolation goal for South Korea in injury time, sending a powerful shot past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

Germany pressed hard for the victor but it looked like Sweden had held out until Kroos curled in a free kick from a right angle to spark scenes of huge relief among the Germans.

Germany are regrouping after its surprising 1-0 loss to Mexico in their first game - the first loss in an opening match for a German team since 1982, but one that could have been far worse.

However, Germany must be anxious by this stats; Sweden have faced the reigning World Cup champion at the World Cup twice before and won both times.
