  • Germany World Cup

Ola Toivonen's deft first-half lob had left Joachim Low's side facing elimination but Marco Reus, starting in place of Arsenal's Mesut Ozil, prodded in an equaliser as Germany assumed control after the interval.

But in the 95th minute Kroos hit a superb free-kick to give Germany the all-important win.

Germany coach Joachim Low praised his players for keeping their nerve during a "rollercoaster ride" as a late 2-1 win over Sweden reignited their World Cup hopes. It was produced from a free kick that he took just outside the penalty box. Germany was struggling, and while a draw would not have eliminated them from the knockout round, but it would have meant they needed to beat South Korea while getting help from Mexico just to advance.

"Mistakes like that happen even to Toni Kroos, so I am pleased that he then scored the goal".

Kroos was heavily involved as Germany pushed for a victor, completing 15 passes after Jerome Boateng was sent off - as many as Sweden's entire team in that time.

He kept Germany alive in the World Cup and established himself as the undisputed leader of the team at a time when others of his generation had failed to do so.

The ball arced over helpless keeper Robin Olsen into the net, sparking an explosion of German joy on the bench and in the stands as the reigning champions kick-started their World Cup campaign.

"I told them to keep their calm in the next 45 minutes and to not start panicking and try to work long, high balls but to continue with short passes and go vertical to the wings and try to be incisive", Low told reporters.

He seemed more content with playing second fiddle and remaining in his creative midfield position, leaving the leading to someone else for both club and country.
