‘F*** racism!’ Sweden team send powerful message after death threats to Durmaz

‘F*** racism!’ Sweden team send powerful message after death threats to Durmaz

"It's going to be extremely hard to stop us from advancing out of the group", he said.

But Kroos, who had been at fault for Sweden's goal, stepped up in the 95th minute to curl a free-kick into the top corner, beating the dive of Robin Olsen in the Swedish goal.

"He ran and fought the whole game, it's unlucky - it's completely idiotic to subject him to hate for that", Guidetti told reporters.

Germany will play South Korea with goal difference potentially vital for the teams who want to advance to the last 16.

"It's nothing I'm bothered about", he said.

Werner, 22, admitted the Germans have seen little of South Korea, other than their defeats to group rivals Mexico and Sweden, but will do their homework.

- Mexico only need a draw against Sweden to seal their qualification for the round of 16 for the seventh tournament in a row.

Munich's authorities last week slapped VW with a €1B (roughly $1.2B) fine stemming from the scandal. Audi and VW said Stadler was presumed innocent unless proved otherwise.


Marcus Berg, who had eight goals in qualifying, has been held scoreless despite a team-high six scoring opportunities through two games. "We believe in our possibilities and we are very strong mentally". "We're going to do that".

- Javier Hernandez became the first Mexican player to score 50 goals for the national team when he netted against South Korea.

World Cup Daily: Toni Kroos goes from villain to hero and celebrations cause a stir. There was no formal video review called for.

If Kroos' shot was deflected, a little too high, or didn't have the flawless whipping curl, Germany would be sitting with one point, needing a victory on its last group game and a lot of help to keep alive a streak of making the knockout round in every World Cup since 1938.

The Swedish Football Association said on Sunday it had filed a police complaint in the wake of a spate of threats and racial slurs targeting Durmaz.

"Don't let them get to you!"

The ideal pace. The flawless curl, the combo play with Reus catching Sweden by surprise just enough that defenders and goalkeeper Robin Olsen were unable to react. "Looking forward to [Sweden's] vindication against Mexico", wrote Ebba Busch Thor, leader of the opposition Christian Democrats party, on the midfielder's Instagram account. Nobody was punched or kicked by them, no swear words or curses were exchanged, but still, the behaviour was wrong.
