Germany Vs Sweden FIFA world cup 2018
Get ready count down starts
The second round of matches is underway as Germany take on Sweden in Group F. The much-fancied Germans were stunned in their opening game, going down 1-0 to Mexico, so a win against the Swedes is vital if they are to qualify from the group stages.
Sweden got their campaign up and running with a 1-0 win over South Korea. And a win for Janne Andersson’s side could see reigning world champions Germany exit the World Cup after the first round for the first time in 80 years.
There’s been significant debate about the role of Marco Reus and whether he should be starting for Germany. Reus came on in the 60th minute against Mexico and Germany’s attack was notably better once he got involved.
Germany will be raring to get over their surprise 1-0 defeat they suffered against Mexico in their opening Group F game. Hirving Lozano scored the only goal of the game which had the German players scratching their heads and gazing at one-another with confused looks.
In their first game Sweden strolled past South Korea, Andreas Granqvist scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot. South Korea failed to register a single shot on target and will certainly be tested against a Germany attacking force with a point to prove.
