Germany who were beaten by outsiders Mexico in the first match at the 2018 world cup in Russia. And they had to defeat Sweden to get started and be safe at this world cup. But things did not go to plan for the Germans , as Sweden scored the opening goal in the first half ,and also took control in the first half. Now Germans were very realistically in big danger of losing two matches in a row at a single world cup history. Please note as a unified Germany would have lost two matches in a row for the first time since the year 1938 world cup, for that was West Germany that lost two matches in a row for the first time ever. But Germany are not the world cup winners for nothing, as they came back from a goal down against Sweden to win their first points with goals from Marcus Reus early on in the second half and a great free kick by Tony Kroos in the injury time, sadly braking thousands of Swedish hearts. But the Germans were shown a red card for Jerome Boateng in the 84 eighty fourth minute. This is what makes football the most watched sport , s nothing is decided till the final whistle.
