Sensational Toni Kroos strike saves 10-man Germany in stoppage time

Toni Kroos curled home a spectacular stoppage-time free-kick to snatch 10-man Germany a 2-1 win over Sweden.

Joachim Low’s side were facing the prospect of crashing out of the tournament when 1-0 down at half-time following Ola Toivonen’s classy finish.

And Germany’s prospects did not look all that much brighter going into the final seconds of the game at 1-1, as hope from Marco Reus’ equaliser was sucked away by a red card for defender Jerome Boateng.

But, with 94 minutes on the clock, up stepped Kroos to curl home a free-kick from a ridiculously tight angle to keep Germany’s World Cup defence alive.
