Even with 2 wins, Mexico’s place in next round not secure

The Swedes were within seconds of holding defending champions Germany to a draw, and moving into good position to advance to the round of 16 at the World Cup, when Toni Kroos scored deep into stoppage time to give Germany a 2-1 come-from-behind victory.

"Anyone who speaks up, those experts, and anyone who writes about it can feel they have addressed things, but it gives me the feeling that it's more fun to analyse or talk or write badly of us", he told reporters.

"If goals are added to my experience, it's a nice bonus, but what is most important is that we keep progressing in the tournament".

"We have to put our foot on the gas and take our chances", Kroos said.

Sweden can ensure its place in the knockout round by beating Mexico in its final group game on Wednesday.

The German Football Association (DFB) apologised for the reaction towards the Sweden bench following their dramatic 2-1 win at the World Cup in Russian Federation on Saturday.

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




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

Germany's wild celebrations at Kroos' victor were criticised by Sweden coach Janne Andersson, who felt he and his backroom staff were disrespected.

"We know that some past world champions have not survived the group stage at their next World Cup but we will do everything so that it does not happen to us", the winger, playing in his first World Cup, said.

Loew made four changes that paid off against Sweden - notably dropping playmaker Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira to make room for Marco Reus, Jonas Hector, Sebastian Rudy and Ruediger.

Reus got Germany back in the game early in the second half as the Germans launched a massive offensive and when Boateng was sent off for his second yellow card eight minutes from time the Germans continued to push on.

Hummels missed Saturday's dramatic 2-1 win over Sweden through injury, but was able to return to training on Monday.

"I am having some breathing problems but there is no pain at all at the moment", said Rudy, who had surgery on Sunday. "He's a football almanac, he lives for football and the Mexican players". "We will probably require a day of rest and then we will start preparing for South Korea".
