Rudy doubt for Germany with broken nose

26 June 2018

While the exuberant, post-match celebrations by Germany's coaching staff upset Sweden, they belied the champions' desire to show the rest of the world that their business in Russian Federation is far from over.

Neuer was also one of the main speakers during the crisis meeting that followed the loss against Mexico.

"Our defensive players have lost confidence and that's very unfortunate, he said".

"I am proud to play in the Swedish national team", Durmaz said.

Germany's dramatic victory brought the World Cup holders back from the brink of likely elimination and means there is everything to play for in Group F, with all four teams retaining hopes of qualification.

Nearly instantaneously, Durmaz's social media accounts were awash with vicious, spiteful comments, many - sadly, predictably - in reference to his Turkish heritage.

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

Germany, looking far sharper than they did in their opening defeat against Mexico, piled forward and eventually earned their reward when Marco Reus reacted quickly to turn the ball in shortly after the interval. "We have to win and not just 1-0".

Backed by his team mates, coaches and staff, he read out a prepared statement at their training ground.

"El Tri" will advance to the knockout stages with a win or a draw against Sweden.
