Germany vs sweden

As the refree blows the whistle, germany side were likely to press more and more on the Swedish area as expected. 13'
Beag missed a golden opportunity to take a lead for Swedish side in a counter attack where he was tackled by Boateng
from behind and Swedish players were complaining to referee for a penalty. He should have netted the German post in the
first place. Rudy made an early exit due to blow on the nose on 25th minute . he couldnot continue so Gundogan has to come in to replace him.

32'Goal !!! that was a beautiful finish over the keeper Neuer by O. Toivonen on 32nd minute. Germany paid a price when Toni Kroos Missed pass the ball to swedish player. its sweden 1-0 on the first 45 minutes of the game.

Marco Reus missed another golden chance to give german side a lead on 61th minute. When he tried to backheel the ball on the back of the post where he could not touch the ball German side kept pressure on swedish side. But J.
