What is it? 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. When is it? It's today, so Saturday, June 23. What time is kick-off? 7pm UK time. What TV channel is it on? ITV 1. Alternatively, you can follow the match live with us on Telegraph Sport. Where is the game being played? Fisht Stadium, Sochi. World Cup 2018 stadium: Fisht Stadium What is the team news? 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. But Reus has suffered significant injuries the past few seasons, none bigger than a knee injury that caused him to miss more than half of last season with Dortmund. "I really have no say in this. All I can do is make is as hard as possible for them to do without me," Reus said. "I try and give my all in training, offer myself and do hope of course I'll be picked in order to help Germany get out of the group." World Cup 2018 Simulator Single Game The squads in full: Germany Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona), Kevin Trapp (Paris St Germain). Defenders: Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich), Matthias Ginter (Borussia Moenchengladbach), Jonas Hector (Cologne), Mats Hummels (Bayern Munich), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Marvin Plattenhardt (Hertha Berlin), Antonio Ruediger (Chelsea), Niklas Suele (Bayern Munich). Midfielders: Julian Brandt (Bayer Leverkusen), Julian Draxler (Paris St Germain), Leon Goretzka (Schalke 04), Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City), Sami Khedira (Juventus), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund), Sebastian Rudy (Bayern Munich), Mesut Ozil (Arsenal).

World Cup 2018 | Fixtures, groups, squads and more What's the latest news? Sweden's World Cup clash with Germany in Sochi on Saturday will carry extra sporting spice for their defender Martin Olsson because his sister is married to top German basketball player Dirk Nowitzki. As soon as the draw was made the full-back's phone started buzzing with messages from his brother-in-law, who plays for the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA on the other side of the Atlantic. "He's a big football fan, so there's a lot of football talk in the family," Olsson said. "We have a family chat on WhatsApp so there's been a good bit of banter. He probably wants Germany to win but it hasn't got serious yet, before the game starts it probably will." Sweden outlasted Holland to advance in World Cup qualifying. When the Swedes got to the European play-off round and a chance to reach Russia, they methodically eliminated past champion Italy over two games. At this point, why not knock out another high-profile team - and the pre-tournament favourites at that? If that were to happen, it would be the second consecutive World Cup where the defending champion have been knocked out of contention before the knockout stage. test - do not delete "We need to dare to do even more," Sweden coach Janne Andersson said after beating South Korea 1-0 in its opener. Beating Germany would certainly throw even more chaos into an already unpredictable World Cup. Sweden will find a wounded Germany line-up trying to rebound from a 1-0 loss to Mexico in the opener where they were thoroughly outplayed. It was the first time since 1982 that a German team lost its opening match at the World Cup. And immediately questions followed about the state of the squad. What stood out in the loss to Mexico was Germany's susceptibility to the counter attack and the number of scoring opportunities allowed. "Against Sweden it will be a different set-up. Sweden has different strengths and weaknesses compared to Mexico," Thomas Mueller said. "I don't expect them to be as fantastically gifted when it comes to transitions as the Mexicans, but having said that they have some players that can hurt us on the offensive." test - do not delete What are the odds? Germany to win - 4/9 Draw - 7/2 Sweden to win - 8/1 What's our prediction? Germany and Sweden haven't met since qualifying for the 2014 World Cup when they were in the same group. The teams played out a 4-4 draw in Berlin, before Germany earned a 5-3 win in Sweden on Oct 15, 2013. Another goalfest would be just what this tournament needs.

South Korea full-back Park Joo-ho has been ruled out of the rest of the World Cup after suffering a hamstring injury in the 1-0 defeat by Sweden on Monday that will sideline him for up to three weeks. The 31 year-old sustained the injury in the first half while trying to keep a wild pass in play and was taken off the pitch on a stretcher before being replaced at left-back by Kim Min-woo. Park will remain with the squad even though he will not be able to play in the matches against Mexico and Germany.

World Cup 2018 | Fixtures, groups, squads and more What's the latest news? Mexico striker Javier Hernandez has appealed to his country's football fans to stop their homophobic chanting at World Cup matches, arguing it could lead to further fines from Fifa. Hernandez posted a message on Instagram on Wednesday asking fans to end their derogatory chants during their opponents' goal kicks. "To all Mexican fans in the stadiums, don't shout 'puto'," Hernandez said. "Let's not risk another sanction." Mexicans have long shouted the word - slang for a male sex worker - which gay rights groups argue is homophobic. Although the Mexican team has appealed before for an end to the chants – the players even released a video on the subject in 2016 – some supporters have not relented. test - do not delete Thousands of Mexican fans have flooded into Russia for the World Cup and some chanted the abuse during the match against Germany on Sunday, prompting Fifa to announce disciplinary procedures earlier this week. The Mexican football federation (FMF) was sanctioned 12 times for homophobic chanting during the World Cup qualifying campaign, receiving warnings for the first two offences and fines for 10 more. The chant was also widely heard at Mexico games in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when Fifa took no action, but the governing body has since launched a clamp-down. Other Latin American teams, including Argentina and Chile, have also been fined. Fifa is employing three specialist observers at each World Cup match to report discriminatory behaviour by spectators. What are the odds? Mexico to win - 4/6 Draw - 5/2 South Korea to win - 9/2 What's our prediction? South Korea must defy their status as the weakest team in the group and upset a resurgent Mexico if they are to keep their World Cup hopes alive. Heung-min Son is regarded as the only world-class player in the Korean side, but is exactly the sort of inspirational player that could lead a resurgence, albeit a futile one.

What is it? It is England's second group stage game as they look to follow up their opening victory over Tunisia with all three points against minnows Panama. When is it? The England vs Panama match is the first of the day tomorrow on Sunday, June 24 and will kick-off at 1pm UK time. What TV channel is it on? Live coverage begins at 12.15pm on BBC One, and as ever the broadcast will be anchored by former England striker and 1986 World Cup Golden Boot winner Gary Lineker. Lineker was joined by Alan Shearer, Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand for the Beeb's coverage of the dramatic late win over Tunisia on Monday night. "I fully expect us to beat Panama and that would give us great confidence going into that last game (against Belgium)," said Lampard. BBC Sport's World Cup coverage from Red Square in Moscow Credit: BBC "I think we're trying to keep expectations down but let's be happy, let's look at what we've got. "This is a young team and once they get through the group, which I believe they will, then they've got every chance." How can I live stream the match? If you are in the UK but without access to a television, you can watch the whole England vs Panama match live on BBC iPlayer on desktop, mobile or a tablet. All you need to do is make sure you have an iPlayer account and are signed in your relevant device. People trying to watch the match outside the country, without access to a television, will not be able to stream the game live as BBC iPlayer is only available to people inside the United Kingdom. England vs Tunisia Player ratings Will there be a highlights show? Don't worry if you miss the game entirely as BBC One will be showing extended highlights of the match at 11:20pm on Sunday evening. Highlights of Poland vs Colombia and Japan vs Senegal from Group H will also be shown. What have TV ratings been like? There was a peak television audience of 18.3 million for Tunisia vs England, better than May's Royal Wedding, plus more than three million requests to watch online via BBC iPlayer. World Cup 2018 | Fixtures, groups, squads and more What should England expect from Panama? Panama put numbers behind the ball and defended resolutely against Belgium before eventually being undone by moments of individual brilliance. The underdogs, playing in their first World Cup finals, are not equipped to do anything else so expect England to dominate possession and probe patiently for openings. Panama's squad is one of the oldest competition and they looked vulnerable whenever Belgium were able to counter-attack at speed. It should be a straightforward task for England, and the pattern of the game will be decided by the time of the first goal. WorldCup - newsletter promo - end of article

A few teams have qualified, a few have been eliminated and Argentina are facing a battle to reach the knockout rounds. The 2018 Fifa World Cup's eight groups are shaping up nicely as we head through the second round of games – but who is in best shape to progress to the round of 16? Here are the group tables, latest standings and permutations. Last December's draw in Moscow saw England placed in Group E with Belgium, Tunisia and Panama. The top two in the group will qualify for the knockout stages. You can find details about each team, the World Cup group they are in and our prediction on who makes it through right here. World Cup Draw Live Widget 2018 Group A - Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Uruguay Russia 5 Saudi Arabia 0 Egypt 0 Uruguay 1 Russia 3 Egypt 1 Uruguay 1 Saudi Arabia 0 Our pre-tournament group prediction: Uruguay and Egypt to go through With one game to go: Russia and Uruguay meet in the final group game that will decide who tops the group, with Egypt and Saudi Arabia already eliminated and playing for pride. Should Russia and Uruguay draw, the host nation will win Group A due to their superior goal difference. Group B - Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Iran Morocco 0 Iran 1 Portugal 3 Spain 3 Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Iran 0 Spain 1 Our pre-tournament group prediction: Portugal and Spain to go through With one game to go: Portugal face Iran and Spain play Morocco in the final round of matches. Morocco are eliminated on zero points despite two commendable performances. Spain and Portugal are currently separated by disciplinary record, so whichever team with the better final result will finish above the other. If the result and disciplinary records are identical, lots will be drawn. Portugal need at least a point to qualify but are eliminated if they lose to Carlos Queiroz's Iran. Iran will qualify if they beat Portugal, and could finish top if Spain lose to Morocco. Group C - France, Australia, Peru, Denmark France 2 Australia 1 Peru 0 Denmark 1 Denmark 1 Australia 1 France 1 Peru 0 Our pre-tournament group prediction: France and Denmark to go through With one game to go: France are through with a game to go, but will need to avoid defeat against second-place Denmark to top the group. Denmark need just a point to guarantee their progress but could still fail to qualify if Australia beat Peru and end up a better goal difference than the Danes. Peru are out. Group D - Argentina, Iceland, Croatia, Nigeria Argentina 1 Iceland 1 Croatia 2 Nigeria 0 Argentina 0 Croatia 3 Nigeria 2 Iceland 0 Our pre-tournament group prediction: Argentina and Croatia to go through With one game to go: Croatia are through, but are not yet guaranteed to top the group. Nigeria will join Croatia in the last 16 with victory over Argentina. A draw between Argentina and Nigeria would allow Iceland to qualify with a two-goal win over Croatia (as long as they score at least one more than Nigeria). Argentina, who have been given hope by Nigeria's win over Iceland, can qualify by beating Nigeria - as long as Iceland don't beat Croatia. Group E - Brazil, Switzerland, Costa Rica, Serbia Costa Rica 0 Serbia 1 Brazil 1 Switzerland 1 Brazil 2 Costa Rica 0 Serbia 1 Switzerland 2 Our pre-tournament group prediction: Brazil and Switzerland to go through With one game to go: Brazil only need a draw in their final group game against Serbia to qualify. Switzerland need to match or better Serbia's result against Brazil when they take on Costa Rica who are already going home. Serbia must beat Brazil to qualify. A draw would be enough if Switzerland are beaten by Brazil by more than one goal. Group F - Germany, Mexico, Sweden, South Korea Germany 0 Mexico 1 Sweden 1 South Korea Our pre-tournament group prediction: Germany and Mexico to go through Group G - Belgium, Panama, Tunisia, England Belgium 3 Panama 0 Tunisia 1 England 2 Our pre-tournament group prediction: Belgium and England to go through test - do not delete Group H - Poland, Senegal, Colombia, Japan Colombia 1 Japan 2 Poland 1 Senegal 2 Our pre-tournament group prediction: Poland and Colombia to go through Full 2018 World Cup squad lists and guides | Star to watch, odds, fans' chants and more World Cup 2018 | The best of the Telegraph's coverage WorldCup - newsletter promo - end of article

If anything, Germany were even more chaotic than they had been against Mexico and the fact they were still very much in this game at the start of the second period was down to a combination of Swedish profligacy, Manuel Neuer and some questionable officiating. Don’t mention the VAR. When Viktor Claesson sent Ola Toivonen scampering clear in the 12th minute, it set the tone for Swedish speed and success on the transition, and Germany’s struggles to cope with it. The goal was just opening up for Toivonen as he shaped to shoot inside the penalty area when Jerome Boateng bundled the Sweden striker over through a combination of push and trip. The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) is employed precisely for these sort of moments but, to the outrage of everyone on the Sweden bench, not to mention Toivonen, play merely carried on. It was to Sweden’s enormous credit then that they simply dug deeper and grew in strength, organisation and conviction. Sweden had made just six passes to Germany’s 122 in the first 10 minutes and 19 to the world champions’ 169 15 minutes in but the only statistic that will have concerned them was the one that signalled they were a goal in front. Germany vs Sweden And what a goal it was, one that showcased all the virtues of Janne Andersson’s side. From the tireless Marcus Berg intercepting a stray pass from Toni Kroos to the probing Claesson stroking a clever cross into Toivonen to the Toulouse forward cushioning the ball on his chest and holding off the desperate lunge of Antonio Rudiger to delicately lift the ball over the advancing Neuer, it was a masterclass in how to strike hard and fast. Toivonen's finish was superb for Sweden's opening goal Credit: GETTY IMAGES The problem for Sweden is that they had enough chances after that to kill the game, but with opportunities for first Claesson and then Berg to extend the lead going begging, the door remained ajar for a German side who simply could not be as poor after the interval as they had been before it. Still, the timing of Germany’s equaliser was a real kick in the teeth for Sweden. They had defended doggedly, riding their luck in the second minute when Julian Draxler blasted a shot straight at a Swedish body after Timo Werner had capitalised on a mistake by Andreas Granqvist and Robin Olsen also made a good save from Ilkay Gundogan’s deflected shot. Germany vs Sweden shots on goal But the Swedes had been pretty flawless. Reus’s goal, then, would provide a serious test of their mettle. A low cross from the left by Werner brushed the foot of Mario Gomez, on at half time for Draxler, and rolled into the path of Reus, who stabbed the ball home ahead of a despairing Ludwig Augustinsson. How Sweden must have been rueing those missed chances at that point. Berg could not have done much better with his powerful angled header from Seb Larsson’s free-kick, stealing ahead of Kroos, but Neuer dived full stretch to his right to tip the ball round a post. More frustrating was Claesson’s squandered opportunity. Germany had been undone once again on the transition. Emil Forsberg found himself in acres of space down the left channel and bent a wonderful cross with the outside of his right boot past Boateng and Rudiger and into Claesson, who made the mistake of trying to cut inside Jonas Hector rather than shoot first time. Toni Kroos celebrates his goal Credit: AP Germany had lost Sebastian Rudy after just half an hour when he took an accidental boot to the face from Toivonen that resulted in blood splattering from his nose. This, though, was a fesity game, played right on the edge, with tackles flying around and no inch given. Mikael Lustig and Werner squared up a heavy challenge by the Sweden right back and next it was Albin Ekdal and Thomas Muller’s turn to start pushing and shoving each other. A red card seemed likely at some stage and so it materialised in the 82nd minute when Boateng was dismissed for a second yellow card after scything through Berg following an earlier handball. Germany were firmly in the ascendency and their numerical disadvantage would not change that. It had been a siege at times, with Low effectively playing 2-2-6 as they pushed for a winner. Average touch positions (0 min) Joshua Kimmich put a perfect cross on a plate for Reus on the hour but the Borussia Dortmund forward could not make contact as he tried a back heel and the chance went. Later Kroos plonked a fine cross on the head of Gomez but Olsen’s save was outstanding. Then at the death Julian Brandt, a substitute, crashed a shot against a post. It was thrilling. Germany live to fight another day but their fate is out of their hands. Then at the death Julian Brandt, a substitute, crashed a shot against a post. Germany must have thought their chance had gone there and then. Kroos, though, had other ideas. What a game. What a night. 9:21PM Some reading ahead of tomorrow How England can get the job done against physical Panama We'll see you then for our live coverage of all the big games, including England's attempts to beat Panama. 9:10PM ITV pundits now laying into Boateng Patrice Evra "I don't wanna go harsh on him but he had a really bad game. When he was sent off, Germany played better." Roy Keane (seriously, what has happened to him?) "They spoke about him having 65 pairs of shoes so he can't be right upstairs" Everyone laughs. Personally, I can see where the Boateng criticism comes from but he's a key component of Low's attempts to play positional football high up the pitch. He's meant to be a play-maker in this side and if the things he'd attempted actually worked, would have looked like a total star. Instead he was full of mistakes... but you will make mistakes if you're experimenting. The obvious retort to that is he's a defender and needs to stay safe. Gary Neville says: "It's like they're trying to do a little bit of what Pep Guardiola does and what Germany do. At Man City a full-back comes into midfield to prevent the counter-attack but their's are wide. It's like they're stuck between two tactics." I like that Boateng and Germany are trying something a little different. If it works it'll keep opposition teams pinned back but at the moment they are just simply too offensive and are leaving massive gaps. That brings us back to the old chess dilemma though. The thinking is that if you bring an attacking mentality to the game you will dominate as you restrict the counter-attack options of your opponent. I could go into this for hours, so let's stop. It's safe to say that Boateng was ropey/[deleted word] tonight. And he deserved that red card! 9:04PM Kroos' goal 9:03PM Henrik Larsson is not happy "Stand on your feet. That's the first thing you learn!" says Henrik about Durmaz's fatal foul. 9:02PM This game has broken Roy Keane "Brilliant. I really enjoyed the game. My condolences. We've criticised them, we've slagged Germany off, they were awful but they stuck at it, brilliant drama - I loved it." 9:01PM Celebrations for that goal Credit: AFP There was a bit of a ruckus on the touchline once Kroos' goal went in with Sweden's manager particularly upset about something. 8:59PM What a finish That was utterly brilliant. Sweden defended heroically but just couldn't hang on and to be fair to them, that stunning Kroos goal from a free-kick was the kind you just can't do anything about. Sheer class. Germany vs Sweden shots on goal 8:55PM FULL TIME Wow. I cannot imagine how gutted Sweden fans feel (I can, I'm Scottish) but that is a simply breathtaking way to win. Never write off the Germans! 8:54PM GOL GOL GOL GOL GOL GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLL Germany 2 Sweden 1 Germany 2 - 1 Sweden (Toni Kroos, 90 + 5 min) That's unbelievable! Kroos touches the free-kick, Reus stops it and Kroos bends a brilliant, powerful, bending shot into the top corner! That is absolutely unbelievable. Goal: Germany ( 90 + 5 min ) 8:53PM GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL! Germany 2 Sweden 1 sakjhbsadakjhdsa dsadsaWHGWATAJHAHA WHGAAT A GOAL!!!!! INCREDIBLE FROM GERMANY! 8:52PM 90 mins+5 - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Last chance for Germany. They go from goalkeeper to Sweden's half. Werner takes on his man... and wins a free-kick! This will be the last passage of play of the game. Kroos and Reus are over the ball. These set pieces haven't worked so far... 8:50PM 90 mins+3 - Germany 1 Sweden 1 GERMANY HIT THE POST! WHAT A STRIKE! Brandt absolutely launches an effort from 20 yards and it pings back off the post and lands at the feet of Werner. But he can only turn it over the bar! He was offside anyway. Sweden can break! They have men over here - Germany are in trouble! The linesman's flag has saved them. Two minutes left of this one for Germany to find a winner. Or Sweden! 8:49PM 90 mins+2 - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Olsen punches away when he could catch. Germany have everyone inside the Sweden half, the deepest player is Rudiger and he's 20 yards from the halfway line! Rudiger goes to ground way too easily (for my liking) and wins a cheap free-kick at half way as Sweden keep the ball for a bit. Germany win a corner. It's exciiiiiiting!!! 8:47PM 90 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Muller is wide right, tries to hit a low cross into the box and ends up punting it out for a throw-in. Awful. Brandt is fouled wide left - this is a dangerous position for a set piece, or it would be if Germany were able to win aerial battles against a strong, tall Sweden side. Sweden sub Berg for Thelin. 8:45PM 88 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Hector off, Brandt on. That means Germany have Kimmich - who has been a right winger all game - and Rudiger left defending. Kroos has been acting as a third centre-back all night so he'll be involved. Sweden are defending so well here, there's just no space for Germany to exploit. The ball is out on the left, crossed in and GOMEZ IS THERE! WHAT A SAVE BY OLSEN! A point blank save by the Sweden goalkeeper denies Germany! 8:44PM 86 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 And now there's confirmation that the referee was waiting for the victim of Boateng's foul (which wasn't overly or at all malicious by the way) to get to his feet before showing Boateng the second yellow. Buying some time to think seems like a sensible approach. It's still all Germany even with 10 men. 8:42PM 84 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 SWEDEN GO CLOSE! This game is amazing. The ball is put into the area but Germany manage to survive - somehow - and Sweden have a corner. It goes out for a goal kick. VAR can't intervene for yellow card decisions but assistant referees can... and it seems like one of those may well have told the referee that Boateng should have been booked for that offence. Replays seem to show that's the right call anyway! 8:40PM RED CARD OOOOHHHH OR HAS HE? The referee changes his mind - VAR? - and Boateng has been sent off for a second yellow! 8:39PM 82 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Germany's forwards are just standing occupying these positions as the ball is moved around the pitch. Werner then finds space inside the box and meets a cross from wide right... but he's missed it. That is a HUGE chance. Oooooohhhh Boateng has gone flying into a tackle from behind and that should be a yellow! The referee says no. 8:37PM 80 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Germany vs Sweden shots on goal What do Germany have left? They have 10 minutes to conjure something and Sweden must be knackered defending this all game long. 8:36PM 78 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Sweden take their time over a goal kick, hump it long and Berg fouls Kimmich near his own box. John Guidetti comes on for Toivonen. 8:33PM 76 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Durmaz has an instant impact, winning a corner with his first involvement. The corner is swung in, some players go down in the box and a shot from distance is well saved by Neuer. 8:31PM 74 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Sweden are finding it difficult to play their way out from the back but Germany are so keen to win the ball back that they keep conceding fouls and handing Sweden much needed time. Claesson is subbed for Durmaz. 8:30PM 72 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Credit: REUTERS How long until this man makes an appearance? Germany might not need him! Werner is in on the left, he gets to the line and fires across goal but nobody can turn it in! Sweden survive... Toivonen handballs 35 yards out. Kroos stands over the free-kick. It goes wide, Kimmich has to pass back and Gundogan crosses. Reus has a hopeful shot blocked, Germany start from the back after a throw-in. 8:28PM 71 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Bad mistake by Kroos. He passes across the pitch and it's easily intercepted but Sweden can't take advantage and Kimmich catches up quickly. The ball is soon in Neuer's gloves and he sends Germany on their way. They took too long to put passes together and Sweden can get back into a defensive shape. Forsberg does brilliantly to hold the ball up and win a free-kick. Boateng is booked for the fouk. 8:26PM 69 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Here come Germ any again. Werner wide left, Kroos takes it on and puts the ball to the edge of the box. It comes back, he chips across the box and Kimmich crosses... and it's cleared. It's all Germany. Boateng chips into the area and GOMEZ IS THERE! HE'S MISSED FROM SIX YARDS! That's a dreadful miss! The linesman says he's offside but he isn't - and had he scored that should have stood. 8:24PM 67 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Olsen punches a cross from right away, Germany try to keep up the pressure but eventually Sweden finally get the ball and try to just keep it for a while. Possession: Germany vs Sweden 8:23PM 65 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 The ball drops for Kroos on the edge of the area, he sets up the shot and hits it... but a sliding tackle comes flying in and gives Germany a corner. Kroos takes, it's headed away and Sweden boot the ball up the pitch. Neuer is 40 yards off his line again to start the passing move. 8:21PM 63 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 An ITV stat tells me that these are the players to have made the most key passes tonight: Muller 11 Kimmich 9 Boateng 7 Neuer is 40 yards off his line to recyle play and start another Germany attack. And Kroos has it on the edge of the area, fakes to shoot but his actual shot is then blocked. 8:19PM 61 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Look at the difference in the passing! Sweden all long, Germany tippy-tappy across the middle. That's starting to change a little bit now. Germany vs Sweden And Reus has just gone close to turning a low cross from Kimmich into the goal! Reus goes for a back heel flick - like Kanu - but kicks thin air and tumbles to the floor. That should have been a goal. 8:17PM 59 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Gomez sprints down the left as Germany have a little chance to counter-attack but Sweden get back and shut down the danger. Boateng tries to follow up and brings the ball towards the box - like Beckenbauer - but his forward pass is poor and easily intercepted. Sweden go long but Rudiger reads the play well and wins the header. 8:14PM 57 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Gundogan goes on a run but does too much and Sweden can break now. Boateng sweeps up the danger and Germany are at half way within a couple of seconds. It's a much higher tempo, forward thinking and Werner is causing problems on the left wing. He beats his man and finds Hector in the penalty area! He controls... shoots and the goalkeeper saves. Low does some windmill gestures on the sidelines, trying to get his players all fired up. 8:12PM 55 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Credit: GETTY IMAGES Germany are finding space in behind to run into now. That's what direct passing will do for you. 8:11PM 53 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Muller is really wound up and has a little battle with Ekdal off the ball, while Werner is obstructed and wins a free-kick wide left. Germany pass patiently but there's bit more zip and purpose to it. Sweden win a goal kick. Olsen takes his time. 8:08PM 51 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Germany have a free-kick wide right of the Sweden box. Rudiger and Boateng are getting feisty with Toivonen, Kroos crosses in and MULLER MEETS IT! But his header is wide and slams off the microphone beside the goal. Miss: Germany 1 - 1 Sweden (Thomas Müller, 51 min) Germany are at it now. 8:07PM 49 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Oh my word it's nearly 2-1! Kroos takes a shot from 20 yards and it takes a massive deflection. The goalkeeper is beaten but the ball flies wide of the far post! Germany are all over Sweden here, they look shaky, on the ropes. 8:05PM GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLL! GERMANY ARE BACK IN BUSINESS! Germany 1 - 1 Sweden (Marco Reus, 48 min) Well whatever he said at half time has worked! Werner is out on the left hand side, beats his man and crosses into the box. Everyone misses the ball except Reus who puts a knee on the ball to turn it into the goal. Game on! 8:05PM 47 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 You can already see what Sweden's plan is in this half. Defend deep and take advantage of Germany having so few players - and none with any pace - making risky passes at half way. 8:02PM KICK OFF 2 We're back. Mario Gomez is warmed up and ready to come on, giving Germany an actual focal point for the 20million crosses they're going to ping into the area this half. Remember, if Germany lose, they are OUT of the World Cup. Gomez replaces Draxler. This might bring an end to probing and lead to more direct passing. 7:59PM Stay up to date with all things World Cup If you haven't signed up for our Whatsapp updates yet, I recommend you do. It's great having things sent to your phone: World Cup whatsapp promo 7:58PM Solid joke Pougatch has won joke of the night as a motorbike can be heard in the background of the ITV studio. "I'm not sure what that motorbike is but I wonder if it's Joachim Low making a swift getaway". This result would serve Low right for wearing a t-shirt tbf. 7:56PM What's going wrong? Germany are pushing high up the pitch so it looks like this: The goal came as Kroos gave a pass away to Toivonen and you can see the space that's going to be left if Germany do turnover possession. Straight away they have to chase back and are vulnerable because they are in transition. Sweden attack down one wing quickly and the left midfielder sprints to join in down the left. They don't over commit but because it's a quick counter they don't need to. Gary Neville is laying into Germany's defence: "The centre-backs have been a joke. Boateng thinks he's Beckenbauer! He's played under Pep and thinks he's Beckehnbauer. He's got delusions of grandeur, he really does, wandering about." 7:51PM Half-time stats Possession: Germany vs Sweden It's been all Germany but Sweden's attacks are much more potent. Germany are playing like it's a Legends friendly game and they're going to sub on Jurgen Klinsmann and Lothar Matthaus at half time... Average touch positions (half time) Boateng is Germany's main playmaker again. 7:48PM HALF TIME Magnificent from Sweden. They've defended deep, stayed disciplined and waited to take their chance to counter-attack. When they've been able to they've looked really dangerous and Germany are teetering on the edge of an incredibly early World Cup exit. Joachim Low needs to change things and get his team revved up. What a job he has on his hands now. 7:46PM 45 mins+2 - Germany 0 Sweden 1 That's smart from Boateng. He's in the right halfspace near the box, cuts onto his left and tries an early shot to the near post. The goalkeeper panics and races over to stop it but the shot is just wide. Out: Germany 0 - 1 Sweden (Jérôme Boateng, 45 min) 7:45PM 45 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Germany are all over the place. They keep letting Sweden in on the counter-attack and Claesson is ridiculously close to cutting inside onto his left foot and getting a shot away from 10 yards. It's a mess here for Germany! 7:42PM 43 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Forget Neymar's rainbow flick yesterday or any of the flip-flaps we've seen! That little bit of skill by Augustinsson on the left is amazing and it's beaten three Germany players at once. He pretends to drag the ball inside then stops it, rolls, then drag-scoops it between two players. So good. 7:40PM 41 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Big chance for Germany and they've wasted it! Gundogan takes a shot, Olsen saves and Muller is beaten to the rebound.. then goes crying to the referee about some sort of foul. He is incorrect. 7:39PM 39 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Credit: GETTY IMAGES What a photograph that is! Perfectly captures the fear in Neuer's eyes and the arc of the ball. Credit: GETTY IMAGES 7:37PM 37 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Sweden are enjoying more of the ball now and are doing so higher up the pitch. What is wrong with this Germany team? This isn't working at the moment. 7:35PM 35 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 What a noise when that goal went in. The Sweden fans are bouncing in the stands, Germany are rocked. 7:32PM GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL! SWEDEN HAVE TAKEN THE LEAD! Germany 0 - 1 Sweden (Ola Toivonen, 32 min) What a brilliant finish this is. Sweden have the ball on the right and a fantastic pass into the box is controlled superbly by Toivonen, who shields the ball and then lobs Neuer with a perfect finish. What a goal. And what a shock this could be! 7:32PM 32 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Rudy is furious that he's not being allowed back on. But that injury looked nasty and is technically a head injury. It's unclear whether the doctor has said he can't continue or if the change has been brought about because they don't have a replacement shirt for him... Gundogan is on in his place. 7:30PM 31 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Rudy is still standing shirtless on the sidelines. Low appears to be losing his patience. He needs a new top because the other one is covered in blood but he's also having a member of staff putting ice on the back of his neck. Germany might make a substitution here. 7:29PM 29 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Sweden are passing around Germany's half! [puts on party hat] They're taking advantage of Germany being down to 10 men at the moment and Hector has to head at the back post to get a cross behind. Corner. The big defenders are forward for it. Werner heads away, Sweden keep the ball. 7:27PM 27 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 That looks like a burst lip and a whack to the nose, which is still bleeding. Rudy goes to change his shirt but he'll need his nose seen to before he can come on. Germany are slowly passing around their own half while he's seen to. Sweden aren't even considering pressing higher to try and win the ball off him. 7:25PM 25 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Berg goes tumbling as Boateng closes in Credit: AFP Rudy is bleeding a lot out of his face and Sweden are concerned about him. Toivonen's caught him in the nose with his heel. Ow. He's down receiving treatment but that will have rattled him. 7:23PM 23 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Germany really need to score here before this turns into a very frustrating night. Sweden could defend like this all night. 7:21PM 21 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 It's just Germany attacking, Sweden defending. No goals, no shots. 7:19PM 19 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Possession: Germany vs Sweden It's kinda one sided... but Sweden look so dangerous on the counter-attack! Possession means nothing if you can't do anything with it. 7:17PM 17 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Lee Dixon raises an interesting point. "If there's nobody there, he gets a shot away" and because Boateng puts his foot in, he doesn't. Still, a team of referees have decided that's not a foul having reviewed it so I'm inclined to side with their opinion. Germany are back in the Sweden final third now, switching play, looking for an opening... but there are too many players heavily marked. 7:14PM 15 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Boateng's attempted tackle sends Berg over... but they're both running at pace and it doesn't look like a penalty to me. And the referee team have concluded that it isn't a foul. Controversy! 7:13PM 13 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Boateng never hides away from the ball and always seems to be in a decent position to help his side keep the passes going. But he's given it away! SWEDEN ARE AWAY! It's Mexico all over again... here goes the striker, Berg's behind the defence, Boateng can't get close and he's one on one with the goalkeeper! He goes down! Is that a penalty? Play continues but VAR will review it. Attempt Saved: Germany 0 - 0 Sweden (Marcus Berg, 12 min) Germany have really gotten away with that! 7:11PM 11 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Germany have made 122 passes so far. Sweden six. Germany vs Sweden 7:09PM 10 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Big chance Germany! Kimmich is the creator again, having the ball wide right and playing a through-pass ahead of Reus' run. It's perfectly weighted, Reus is in behind but his cutback is knocked behind for a corner. Germany pass patiently around the Sweden half looking for an opening. 7:08PM 8 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 But now we see the counter-attack! Germany have made the same mistake early on, two players racing to try and intercept but losing out and suddenly Sweden area away. Forsberg has two chasing defenders, goes past one but is then crowded out on the edge of the Germany box. Germany attack again, Draxler is down the left and he pokes a pass across the box which is just wide of the far post. 7:06PM 6 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 It looks like Rudiger is playing as sweeper, Boateng and Hector taking up positions either side of him when Germany have possession. Germany are already all over Sweden. This could be a long night. 7:03PM 4 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Germany are passing the ball around the final third nicely, Kimmich pulling out wide right... and he hits a cross in that comes off a defender and then lands with Werner! He's inside the six yard box, crosses low and DRAXLER MUST SCORE! Blocked! How has he missed?! Sweden have really gone into defensive mode here. Is it not too early to do that? 7:02PM 2 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Germany get the ball straight away and calmly play out from the back. Sure enough, Sweden immediately drop back into their deep 4-4-2 shape. 7:00PM KICK OFF National anthems are done, the players are ready. Here we go! Sweden start the match. 6:55PM Bad news for Sweden fans Alles Klar, Germany will win, count on it..... the hoff has spoken ✌�� pic.twitter.com/LdvT9cgIn1— David Hasselhoff (@DavidHasselhoff) June 23, 2018 6:53PM Neuer will be involved tonight But probably not in his actual goalmouth, as I (hopefully) explain in the above video! 6:49PM The lineups This is what the game will look like on paper (and on your screen) but in attack it'll be very different. Gary Neville has just said it's boring to play against Sweden because they slow the game down with such a defensive approach to it. This what the game will actually look like. The key differences are that Sweden won't leave two players high either side of the striker to allow counter-attacks and - crucially - Rudy won't go missing from that holding position like Khedira did. 6:43PM Some of you might not get this Daniel Johnston during the ad break then Joy Division as part of the football coverage. Shame to see ITV pandering to Partick Thistle fans like this.— Oldfirmfacts (@Oldfirmfacts1) June 23, 2018 6:35PM ITV pundits on chances of a Sweden win Patrice Evra If he change two players at the back he's really not happy with his defence. When you change two... normally you never change your backline. Henrik Larsson I don't think they're nervous because they're Germany. There's a lot of hope from my point of view, if we can manage to get a draw that would be fantastic. If we win, it would be a miracle. Germany's going to have the ball a lot. It's important for us to play when we get possession and maybe we can do something from a set piece. 6:26PM Lovely photos There are heaps of great pictures that have been taken during this World Cup and we have compiled a bunch of them into this very pleasant gallery: Russia World Cup in pictures: Best photos of teams, games and players 6:16PM Mexico beat South Korea.... Which means Germany will be out of the World Cup if they lose this. No pressure, lads. 6:06PM What went wrong for Germany last time Credit: FIFA Too many players charged up the pitch in their defeat to Mexico, three Mexican forwards stayed high to wait for counter-attacks and Germany were duly punished. The key changes are Ozil, who provided absolutely no midfield cover in defence and didn't offer enough in attack, and Khedira, who was supposed to play as a six and shield the defence, link play and act as a pivot in midfield. Rudy will absolutely fix the latter problem, Reus will be a more dynamic, hustle-and-bustle replacement for Ozil. Kimmich and Hector will still fly up the wings but as long as Rudy holds his position and doesn't get too separated from Kroos they'll have some cover. Sweden won't be able to counter-attack in quite the same way Mexico did and this will be a different game. The big challenge will be creating chances in the final third against a really well drilled Swedish defence while ensuring they don't over commit like we saw against Mexico. 6:01PM Sweden team Sweden starting XI (4-4-2) Olsen; Lustig, Lindelof, Granqvist, Augustinsson; Larsson, Ekdal, Claesson, Forsberg; Toivonen, Berg 5:54PM Who's going to win? That's a signal of intent from Joachim Low and it'll be really interesting to see how the team reacts. It's also notable that Mats Hummels - who was so critical of his teammates after the game - has been benched for Rudiger (although Low did say this was due to illness/injury). Sweden are a strong team but lack an individual star. I can see their game plan being to contain and frustrate and attack quickly down the wings - Kimmich and Hector will leave space in behind to take advantage of.

World Cup 2018 stadium: Fisht Stadium The delightfully named Fisht stadium, which as we all know, is in Sochi. This is the venue in which Germany must win to avoid one of the all time biggest World Cup upsets. 5:31PM Big team news... Exclusive: @MesutOzil1088 and @SamiKhedira are not in the starting line-up @SPORTBILD@BILD_Sport— Christian Falk (@cfbayern) June 23, 2018 I'm not sure how valid this is but the source is fairly solid and Mesut Ozil was awful in the last game. Khedira was caught out of position way too often as well. 5:30PM Hello! Welcome to our liveblog for the last game of day 10 of the 2018 World Cup! It's Germany vs Sweden and remarkably it's really difficult to call who's going to win it. Sweden have three points thanks to their narrow win over South Korea (and with the help of VAR) while Germany were torn apart by Mexico, playing a suicidal high line and sending full-backs miles up the pitch only to suffer for it. Joachim Low's team have been out of sorts for quite a time now and there have been rallying calls from the players to address it. "We're under real pressure now," said Toni Kroos. "We have to get six points from the next games. "We didn't play well enough. Overall, we had our chances, but we weren't able to score. "We lost the ball up front far too easily and Mexico had always two or three people up front, who we failed to block efficiently." World Cup 2018 tactics: Why Germany's goalkeeper is key to how they attack Mats Hummels wasn't quite so nice about it: “Mexico deserved the win – our cover was often not good and we were left many times with Jérôme [Boateng] and myself at the back,” he said. “If seven of eight players are attacking then it’s clear our attacking power is greater. But that’s something that I have often talked about internally. It doesn’t always bear fruit. “A wake-up call is too late. We now must win two games, otherwise that is that with the World Cup. I don’t really understand why we played like we played because, really, we already had our wake-up call.” Credit: FIFA Supporters of both teams are having a lovely old time in the Russia sun (though those clouds look ominous) and team news will be with us really soon. When that happens we can try and figure out how both teams plan to approach this but you can bet Sweden will be a 4-4-2, low block and focus play down the wings, while Germany will be keen to AVENGE their opening game defeat. It could be a cracker, it could also be a frustrating 90 minutes for the Germans. Only time will tell! And that time is... soon.
Toni Kroos scores stunning last-gasp winner to keep Germany's World Cup hopes alive after Jerome Boateng red
If anything, Germany were even more chaotic than they had been against Mexico and the fact they were still very much in this game at the start of the second period was down to a combination of Swedish profligacy, Manuel Neuer and some questionable officiating. Don’t mention the VAR. When Viktor Claesson sent Ola Toivonen scampering clear in the 12th minute, it set the tone for Swedish speed and success on the transition, and Germany’s struggles to cope with it. The goal was just opening up for Toivonen as he shaped to shoot inside the penalty area when Jerome Boateng bundled the Sweden striker over through a combination of push and trip. The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) is employed precisely for these sort of moments but, to the outrage of everyone on the Sweden bench, not to mention Toivonen, play merely carried on. It was to Sweden’s enormous credit then that they simply dug deeper and grew in strength, organisation and conviction. Sweden had made just six passes to Germany’s 122 in the first 10 minutes and 19 to the world champions’ 169 15 minutes in but the only statistic that will have concerned them was the one that signalled they were a goal in front. Germany vs Sweden And what a goal it was, one that showcased all the virtues of Janne Andersson’s side. From the tireless Marcus Berg intercepting a stray pass from Toni Kroos to the probing Claesson stroking a clever cross into Toivonen to the Toulouse forward cushioning the ball on his chest and holding off the desperate lunge of Antonio Rudiger to delicately lift the ball over the advancing Neuer, it was a masterclass in how to strike hard and fast. Toivonen's finish was superb for Sweden's opening goal Credit: GETTY IMAGES The problem for Sweden is that they had enough chances after that to kill the game, but with opportunities for first Claesson and then Berg to extend the lead going begging, the door remained ajar for a German side who simply could not be as poor after the interval as they had been before it. Still, the timing of Germany’s equaliser was a real kick in the teeth for Sweden. They had defended doggedly, riding their luck in the second minute when Julian Draxler blasted a shot straight at a Swedish body after Timo Werner had capitalised on a mistake by Andreas Granqvist and Robin Olsen also made a good save from Ilkay Gundogan’s deflected shot. Germany vs Sweden shots on goal But the Swedes had been pretty flawless. Reus’s goal, then, would provide a serious test of their mettle. A low cross from the left by Werner brushed the foot of Mario Gomez, on at half time for Draxler, and rolled into the path of Reus, who stabbed the ball home ahead of a despairing Ludwig Augustinsson. How Sweden must have been rueing those missed chances at that point. Berg could not have done much better with his powerful angled header from Seb Larsson’s free-kick, stealing ahead of Kroos, but Neuer dived full stretch to his right to tip the ball round a post. More frustrating was Claesson’s squandered opportunity. Germany had been undone once again on the transition. Emil Forsberg found himself in acres of space down the left channel and bent a wonderful cross with the outside of his right boot past Boateng and Rudiger and into Claesson, who made the mistake of trying to cut inside Jonas Hector rather than shoot first time. Toni Kroos celebrates his goal Credit: AP Germany had lost Sebastian Rudy after just half an hour when he took an accidental boot to the face from Toivonen that resulted in blood splattering from his nose. This, though, was a fesity game, played right on the edge, with tackles flying around and no inch given. Mikael Lustig and Werner squared up a heavy challenge by the Sweden right back and next it was Albin Ekdal and Thomas Muller’s turn to start pushing and shoving each other. A red card seemed likely at some stage and so it materialised in the 82nd minute when Boateng was dismissed for a second yellow card after scything through Berg following an earlier handball. Germany were firmly in the ascendency and their numerical disadvantage would not change that. It had been a siege at times, with Low effectively playing 2-2-6 as they pushed for a winner. Average touch positions (0 min) Joshua Kimmich put a perfect cross on a plate for Reus on the hour but the Borussia Dortmund forward could not make contact as he tried a back heel and the chance went. Later Kroos plonked a fine cross on the head of Gomez but Olsen’s save was outstanding. Then at the death Julian Brandt, a substitute, crashed a shot against a post. It was thrilling. Germany live to fight another day but their fate is out of their hands. Then at the death Julian Brandt, a substitute, crashed a shot against a post. Germany must have thought their chance had gone there and then. Kroos, though, had other ideas. What a game. What a night. 9:21PM Some reading ahead of tomorrow How England can get the job done against physical Panama We'll see you then for our live coverage of all the big games, including England's attempts to beat Panama. 9:10PM ITV pundits now laying into Boateng Patrice Evra "I don't wanna go harsh on him but he had a really bad game. When he was sent off, Germany played better." Roy Keane (seriously, what has happened to him?) "They spoke about him having 65 pairs of shoes so he can't be right upstairs" Everyone laughs. Personally, I can see where the Boateng criticism comes from but he's a key component of Low's attempts to play positional football high up the pitch. He's meant to be a play-maker in this side and if the things he'd attempted actually worked, would have looked like a total star. Instead he was full of mistakes... but you will make mistakes if you're experimenting. The obvious retort to that is he's a defender and needs to stay safe. Gary Neville says: "It's like they're trying to do a little bit of what Pep Guardiola does and what Germany do. At Man City a full-back comes into midfield to prevent the counter-attack but their's are wide. It's like they're stuck between two tactics." I like that Boateng and Germany are trying something a little different. If it works it'll keep opposition teams pinned back but at the moment they are just simply too offensive and are leaving massive gaps. That brings us back to the old chess dilemma though. The thinking is that if you bring an attacking mentality to the game you will dominate as you restrict the counter-attack options of your opponent. I could go into this for hours, so let's stop. It's safe to say that Boateng was ropey/[deleted word] tonight. And he deserved that red card! 9:04PM Kroos' goal 9:03PM Henrik Larsson is not happy "Stand on your feet. That's the first thing you learn!" says Henrik about Durmaz's fatal foul. 9:02PM This game has broken Roy Keane "Brilliant. I really enjoyed the game. My condolences. We've criticised them, we've slagged Germany off, they were awful but they stuck at it, brilliant drama - I loved it." 9:01PM Celebrations for that goal Credit: AFP There was a bit of a ruckus on the touchline once Kroos' goal went in with Sweden's manager particularly upset about something. 8:59PM What a finish That was utterly brilliant. Sweden defended heroically but just couldn't hang on and to be fair to them, that stunning Kroos goal from a free-kick was the kind you just can't do anything about. Sheer class. Germany vs Sweden shots on goal 8:55PM FULL TIME Wow. I cannot imagine how gutted Sweden fans feel (I can, I'm Scottish) but that is a simply breathtaking way to win. Never write off the Germans! 8:54PM GOL GOL GOL GOL GOL GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLL Germany 2 Sweden 1 Germany 2 - 1 Sweden (Toni Kroos, 90 + 5 min) That's unbelievable! Kroos touches the free-kick, Reus stops it and Kroos bends a brilliant, powerful, bending shot into the top corner! That is absolutely unbelievable. Goal: Germany ( 90 + 5 min ) 8:53PM GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL! Germany 2 Sweden 1 sakjhbsadakjhdsa dsadsaWHGWATAJHAHA WHGAAT A GOAL!!!!! INCREDIBLE FROM GERMANY! 8:52PM 90 mins+5 - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Last chance for Germany. They go from goalkeeper to Sweden's half. Werner takes on his man... and wins a free-kick! This will be the last passage of play of the game. Kroos and Reus are over the ball. These set pieces haven't worked so far... 8:50PM 90 mins+3 - Germany 1 Sweden 1 GERMANY HIT THE POST! WHAT A STRIKE! Brandt absolutely launches an effort from 20 yards and it pings back off the post and lands at the feet of Werner. But he can only turn it over the bar! He was offside anyway. Sweden can break! They have men over here - Germany are in trouble! The linesman's flag has saved them. Two minutes left of this one for Germany to find a winner. Or Sweden! 8:49PM 90 mins+2 - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Olsen punches away when he could catch. Germany have everyone inside the Sweden half, the deepest player is Rudiger and he's 20 yards from the halfway line! Rudiger goes to ground way too easily (for my liking) and wins a cheap free-kick at half way as Sweden keep the ball for a bit. Germany win a corner. It's exciiiiiiting!!! 8:47PM 90 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Muller is wide right, tries to hit a low cross into the box and ends up punting it out for a throw-in. Awful. Brandt is fouled wide left - this is a dangerous position for a set piece, or it would be if Germany were able to win aerial battles against a strong, tall Sweden side. Sweden sub Berg for Thelin. 8:45PM 88 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Hector off, Brandt on. That means Germany have Kimmich - who has been a right winger all game - and Rudiger left defending. Kroos has been acting as a third centre-back all night so he'll be involved. Sweden are defending so well here, there's just no space for Germany to exploit. The ball is out on the left, crossed in and GOMEZ IS THERE! WHAT A SAVE BY OLSEN! A point blank save by the Sweden goalkeeper denies Germany! 8:44PM 86 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 And now there's confirmation that the referee was waiting for the victim of Boateng's foul (which wasn't overly or at all malicious by the way) to get to his feet before showing Boateng the second yellow. Buying some time to think seems like a sensible approach. It's still all Germany even with 10 men. 8:42PM 84 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 SWEDEN GO CLOSE! This game is amazing. The ball is put into the area but Germany manage to survive - somehow - and Sweden have a corner. It goes out for a goal kick. VAR can't intervene for yellow card decisions but assistant referees can... and it seems like one of those may well have told the referee that Boateng should have been booked for that offence. Replays seem to show that's the right call anyway! 8:40PM RED CARD OOOOHHHH OR HAS HE? The referee changes his mind - VAR? - and Boateng has been sent off for a second yellow! 8:39PM 82 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Germany's forwards are just standing occupying these positions as the ball is moved around the pitch. Werner then finds space inside the box and meets a cross from wide right... but he's missed it. That is a HUGE chance. Oooooohhhh Boateng has gone flying into a tackle from behind and that should be a yellow! The referee says no. 8:37PM 80 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Germany vs Sweden shots on goal What do Germany have left? They have 10 minutes to conjure something and Sweden must be knackered defending this all game long. 8:36PM 78 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Sweden take their time over a goal kick, hump it long and Berg fouls Kimmich near his own box. John Guidetti comes on for Toivonen. 8:33PM 76 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Durmaz has an instant impact, winning a corner with his first involvement. The corner is swung in, some players go down in the box and a shot from distance is well saved by Neuer. 8:31PM 74 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Sweden are finding it difficult to play their way out from the back but Germany are so keen to win the ball back that they keep conceding fouls and handing Sweden much needed time. Claesson is subbed for Durmaz. 8:30PM 72 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Credit: REUTERS How long until this man makes an appearance? Germany might not need him! Werner is in on the left, he gets to the line and fires across goal but nobody can turn it in! Sweden survive... Toivonen handballs 35 yards out. Kroos stands over the free-kick. It goes wide, Kimmich has to pass back and Gundogan crosses. Reus has a hopeful shot blocked, Germany start from the back after a throw-in. 8:28PM 71 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Bad mistake by Kroos. He passes across the pitch and it's easily intercepted but Sweden can't take advantage and Kimmich catches up quickly. The ball is soon in Neuer's gloves and he sends Germany on their way. They took too long to put passes together and Sweden can get back into a defensive shape. Forsberg does brilliantly to hold the ball up and win a free-kick. Boateng is booked for the fouk. 8:26PM 69 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Here come Germ any again. Werner wide left, Kroos takes it on and puts the ball to the edge of the box. It comes back, he chips across the box and Kimmich crosses... and it's cleared. It's all Germany. Boateng chips into the area and GOMEZ IS THERE! HE'S MISSED FROM SIX YARDS! That's a dreadful miss! The linesman says he's offside but he isn't - and had he scored that should have stood. 8:24PM 67 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Olsen punches a cross from right away, Germany try to keep up the pressure but eventually Sweden finally get the ball and try to just keep it for a while. Possession: Germany vs Sweden 8:23PM 65 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 The ball drops for Kroos on the edge of the area, he sets up the shot and hits it... but a sliding tackle comes flying in and gives Germany a corner. Kroos takes, it's headed away and Sweden boot the ball up the pitch. Neuer is 40 yards off his line again to start the passing move. 8:21PM 63 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 An ITV stat tells me that these are the players to have made the most key passes tonight: Muller 11 Kimmich 9 Boateng 7 Neuer is 40 yards off his line to recyle play and start another Germany attack. And Kroos has it on the edge of the area, fakes to shoot but his actual shot is then blocked. 8:19PM 61 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Look at the difference in the passing! Sweden all long, Germany tippy-tappy across the middle. That's starting to change a little bit now. Germany vs Sweden And Reus has just gone close to turning a low cross from Kimmich into the goal! Reus goes for a back heel flick - like Kanu - but kicks thin air and tumbles to the floor. That should have been a goal. 8:17PM 59 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Gomez sprints down the left as Germany have a little chance to counter-attack but Sweden get back and shut down the danger. Boateng tries to follow up and brings the ball towards the box - like Beckenbauer - but his forward pass is poor and easily intercepted. Sweden go long but Rudiger reads the play well and wins the header. 8:14PM 57 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Gundogan goes on a run but does too much and Sweden can break now. Boateng sweeps up the danger and Germany are at half way within a couple of seconds. It's a much higher tempo, forward thinking and Werner is causing problems on the left wing. He beats his man and finds Hector in the penalty area! He controls... shoots and the goalkeeper saves. Low does some windmill gestures on the sidelines, trying to get his players all fired up. 8:12PM 55 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Credit: GETTY IMAGES Germany are finding space in behind to run into now. That's what direct passing will do for you. 8:11PM 53 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Muller is really wound up and has a little battle with Ekdal off the ball, while Werner is obstructed and wins a free-kick wide left. Germany pass patiently but there's bit more zip and purpose to it. Sweden win a goal kick. Olsen takes his time. 8:08PM 51 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Germany have a free-kick wide right of the Sweden box. Rudiger and Boateng are getting feisty with Toivonen, Kroos crosses in and MULLER MEETS IT! But his header is wide and slams off the microphone beside the goal. Miss: Germany 1 - 1 Sweden (Thomas Müller, 51 min) Germany are at it now. 8:07PM 49 mins - Germany 1 Sweden 1 Oh my word it's nearly 2-1! Kroos takes a shot from 20 yards and it takes a massive deflection. The goalkeeper is beaten but the ball flies wide of the far post! Germany are all over Sweden here, they look shaky, on the ropes. 8:05PM GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLL! GERMANY ARE BACK IN BUSINESS! Germany 1 - 1 Sweden (Marco Reus, 48 min) Well whatever he said at half time has worked! Werner is out on the left hand side, beats his man and crosses into the box. Everyone misses the ball except Reus who puts a knee on the ball to turn it into the goal. Game on! 8:05PM 47 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 You can already see what Sweden's plan is in this half. Defend deep and take advantage of Germany having so few players - and none with any pace - making risky passes at half way. 8:02PM KICK OFF 2 We're back. Mario Gomez is warmed up and ready to come on, giving Germany an actual focal point for the 20million crosses they're going to ping into the area this half. Remember, if Germany lose, they are OUT of the World Cup. Gomez replaces Draxler. This might bring an end to probing and lead to more direct passing. 7:59PM Stay up to date with all things World Cup If you haven't signed up for our Whatsapp updates yet, I recommend you do. It's great having things sent to your phone: World Cup whatsapp promo 7:58PM Solid joke Pougatch has won joke of the night as a motorbike can be heard in the background of the ITV studio. "I'm not sure what that motorbike is but I wonder if it's Joachim Low making a swift getaway". This result would serve Low right for wearing a t-shirt tbf. 7:56PM What's going wrong? Germany are pushing high up the pitch so it looks like this: The goal came as Kroos gave a pass away to Toivonen and you can see the space that's going to be left if Germany do turnover possession. Straight away they have to chase back and are vulnerable because they are in transition. Sweden attack down one wing quickly and the left midfielder sprints to join in down the left. They don't over commit but because it's a quick counter they don't need to. Gary Neville is laying into Germany's defence: "The centre-backs have been a joke. Boateng thinks he's Beckenbauer! He's played under Pep and thinks he's Beckehnbauer. He's got delusions of grandeur, he really does, wandering about." 7:51PM Half-time stats Possession: Germany vs Sweden It's been all Germany but Sweden's attacks are much more potent. Germany are playing like it's a Legends friendly game and they're going to sub on Jurgen Klinsmann and Lothar Matthaus at half time... Average touch positions (half time) Boateng is Germany's main playmaker again. 7:48PM HALF TIME Magnificent from Sweden. They've defended deep, stayed disciplined and waited to take their chance to counter-attack. When they've been able to they've looked really dangerous and Germany are teetering on the edge of an incredibly early World Cup exit. Joachim Low needs to change things and get his team revved up. What a job he has on his hands now. 7:46PM 45 mins+2 - Germany 0 Sweden 1 That's smart from Boateng. He's in the right halfspace near the box, cuts onto his left and tries an early shot to the near post. The goalkeeper panics and races over to stop it but the shot is just wide. Out: Germany 0 - 1 Sweden (Jérôme Boateng, 45 min) 7:45PM 45 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Germany are all over the place. They keep letting Sweden in on the counter-attack and Claesson is ridiculously close to cutting inside onto his left foot and getting a shot away from 10 yards. It's a mess here for Germany! 7:42PM 43 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Forget Neymar's rainbow flick yesterday or any of the flip-flaps we've seen! That little bit of skill by Augustinsson on the left is amazing and it's beaten three Germany players at once. He pretends to drag the ball inside then stops it, rolls, then drag-scoops it between two players. So good. 7:40PM 41 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Big chance for Germany and they've wasted it! Gundogan takes a shot, Olsen saves and Muller is beaten to the rebound.. then goes crying to the referee about some sort of foul. He is incorrect. 7:39PM 39 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Credit: GETTY IMAGES What a photograph that is! Perfectly captures the fear in Neuer's eyes and the arc of the ball. Credit: GETTY IMAGES 7:37PM 37 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 Sweden are enjoying more of the ball now and are doing so higher up the pitch. What is wrong with this Germany team? This isn't working at the moment. 7:35PM 35 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 1 What a noise when that goal went in. The Sweden fans are bouncing in the stands, Germany are rocked. 7:32PM GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL! SWEDEN HAVE TAKEN THE LEAD! Germany 0 - 1 Sweden (Ola Toivonen, 32 min) What a brilliant finish this is. Sweden have the ball on the right and a fantastic pass into the box is controlled superbly by Toivonen, who shields the ball and then lobs Neuer with a perfect finish. What a goal. And what a shock this could be! 7:32PM 32 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Rudy is furious that he's not being allowed back on. But that injury looked nasty and is technically a head injury. It's unclear whether the doctor has said he can't continue or if the change has been brought about because they don't have a replacement shirt for him... Gundogan is on in his place. 7:30PM 31 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Rudy is still standing shirtless on the sidelines. Low appears to be losing his patience. He needs a new top because the other one is covered in blood but he's also having a member of staff putting ice on the back of his neck. Germany might make a substitution here. 7:29PM 29 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Sweden are passing around Germany's half! [puts on party hat] They're taking advantage of Germany being down to 10 men at the moment and Hector has to head at the back post to get a cross behind. Corner. The big defenders are forward for it. Werner heads away, Sweden keep the ball. 7:27PM 27 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 That looks like a burst lip and a whack to the nose, which is still bleeding. Rudy goes to change his shirt but he'll need his nose seen to before he can come on. Germany are slowly passing around their own half while he's seen to. Sweden aren't even considering pressing higher to try and win the ball off him. 7:25PM 25 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Berg goes tumbling as Boateng closes in Credit: AFP Rudy is bleeding a lot out of his face and Sweden are concerned about him. Toivonen's caught him in the nose with his heel. Ow. He's down receiving treatment but that will have rattled him. 7:23PM 23 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Germany really need to score here before this turns into a very frustrating night. Sweden could defend like this all night. 7:21PM 21 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 It's just Germany attacking, Sweden defending. No goals, no shots. 7:19PM 19 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Possession: Germany vs Sweden It's kinda one sided... but Sweden look so dangerous on the counter-attack! Possession means nothing if you can't do anything with it. 7:17PM 17 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Lee Dixon raises an interesting point. "If there's nobody there, he gets a shot away" and because Boateng puts his foot in, he doesn't. Still, a team of referees have decided that's not a foul having reviewed it so I'm inclined to side with their opinion. Germany are back in the Sweden final third now, switching play, looking for an opening... but there are too many players heavily marked. 7:14PM 15 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Boateng's attempted tackle sends Berg over... but they're both running at pace and it doesn't look like a penalty to me. And the referee team have concluded that it isn't a foul. Controversy! 7:13PM 13 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Boateng never hides away from the ball and always seems to be in a decent position to help his side keep the passes going. But he's given it away! SWEDEN ARE AWAY! It's Mexico all over again... here goes the striker, Berg's behind the defence, Boateng can't get close and he's one on one with the goalkeeper! He goes down! Is that a penalty? Play continues but VAR will review it. Attempt Saved: Germany 0 - 0 Sweden (Marcus Berg, 12 min) Germany have really gotten away with that! 7:11PM 11 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Germany have made 122 passes so far. Sweden six. Germany vs Sweden 7:09PM 10 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Big chance Germany! Kimmich is the creator again, having the ball wide right and playing a through-pass ahead of Reus' run. It's perfectly weighted, Reus is in behind but his cutback is knocked behind for a corner. Germany pass patiently around the Sweden half looking for an opening. 7:08PM 8 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 But now we see the counter-attack! Germany have made the same mistake early on, two players racing to try and intercept but losing out and suddenly Sweden area away. Forsberg has two chasing defenders, goes past one but is then crowded out on the edge of the Germany box. Germany attack again, Draxler is down the left and he pokes a pass across the box which is just wide of the far post. 7:06PM 6 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 It looks like Rudiger is playing as sweeper, Boateng and Hector taking up positions either side of him when Germany have possession. Germany are already all over Sweden. This could be a long night. 7:03PM 4 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Germany are passing the ball around the final third nicely, Kimmich pulling out wide right... and he hits a cross in that comes off a defender and then lands with Werner! He's inside the six yard box, crosses low and DRAXLER MUST SCORE! Blocked! How has he missed?! Sweden have really gone into defensive mode here. Is it not too early to do that? 7:02PM 2 mins - Germany 0 Sweden 0 Germany get the ball straight away and calmly play out from the back. Sure enough, Sweden immediately drop back into their deep 4-4-2 shape. 7:00PM KICK OFF National anthems are done, the players are ready. Here we go! Sweden start the match. 6:55PM Bad news for Sweden fans Alles Klar, Germany will win, count on it..... the hoff has spoken ✌�� pic.twitter.com/LdvT9cgIn1— David Hasselhoff (@DavidHasselhoff) June 23, 2018 6:53PM Neuer will be involved tonight But probably not in his actual goalmouth, as I (hopefully) explain in the above video! 6:49PM The lineups This is what the game will look like on paper (and on your screen) but in attack it'll be very different. Gary Neville has just said it's boring to play against Sweden because they slow the game down with such a defensive approach to it. This what the game will actually look like. The key differences are that Sweden won't leave two players high either side of the striker to allow counter-attacks and - crucially - Rudy won't go missing from that holding position like Khedira did. 6:43PM Some of you might not get this Daniel Johnston during the ad break then Joy Division as part of the football coverage. Shame to see ITV pandering to Partick Thistle fans like this.— Oldfirmfacts (@Oldfirmfacts1) June 23, 2018 6:35PM ITV pundits on chances of a Sweden win Patrice Evra If he change two players at the back he's really not happy with his defence. When you change two... normally you never change your backline. Henrik Larsson I don't think they're nervous because they're Germany. There's a lot of hope from my point of view, if we can manage to get a draw that would be fantastic. If we win, it would be a miracle. Germany's going to have the ball a lot. It's important for us to play when we get possession and maybe we can do something from a set piece. 6:26PM Lovely photos There are heaps of great pictures that have been taken during this World Cup and we have compiled a bunch of them into this very pleasant gallery: Russia World Cup in pictures: Best photos of teams, games and players 6:16PM Mexico beat South Korea.... Which means Germany will be out of the World Cup if they lose this. No pressure, lads. 6:06PM What went wrong for Germany last time Credit: FIFA Too many players charged up the pitch in their defeat to Mexico, three Mexican forwards stayed high to wait for counter-attacks and Germany were duly punished. The key changes are Ozil, who provided absolutely no midfield cover in defence and didn't offer enough in attack, and Khedira, who was supposed to play as a six and shield the defence, link play and act as a pivot in midfield. Rudy will absolutely fix the latter problem, Reus will be a more dynamic, hustle-and-bustle replacement for Ozil. Kimmich and Hector will still fly up the wings but as long as Rudy holds his position and doesn't get too separated from Kroos they'll have some cover. Sweden won't be able to counter-attack in quite the same way Mexico did and this will be a different game. The big challenge will be creating chances in the final third against a really well drilled Swedish defence while ensuring they don't over commit like we saw against Mexico. 6:01PM Sweden team Sweden starting XI (4-4-2) Olsen; Lustig, Lindelof, Granqvist, Augustinsson; Larsson, Ekdal, Claesson, Forsberg; Toivonen, Berg 5:54PM Who's going to win? That's a signal of intent from Joachim Low and it'll be really interesting to see how the team reacts. It's also notable that Mats Hummels - who was so critical of his teammates after the game - has been benched for Rudiger (although Low did say this was due to illness/injury). Sweden are a strong team but lack an individual star. I can see their game plan being to contain and frustrate and attack quickly down the wings - Kimmich and Hector will leave space in behind to take advantage of.

Exclusive: @MesutOzil1088 and @SamiKhedira are not in the starting line-up @SPORTBILD@BILD_Sport— Christian Falk (@cfbayern) June 23, 2018 I'm not sure how valid this is but the source is fairly solid and Mesut Ozil was awful in the last game. Khedira was caught out of position way too often as well. 5:30PM Hello! Welcome to our liveblog for the last game of day 10 of the 2018 World Cup! It's Germany vs Sweden and remarkably it's really difficult to call who's going to win it. Sweden have three points thanks to their narrow win over South Korea (and with the help of VAR) while Germany were torn apart by Mexico, playing a suicidal high line and sending full-backs miles up the pitch only to suffer for it. Joachim Low's team have been out of sorts for quite a time now and there have been rallying calls from the players to address it. "We're under real pressure now," said Toni Kroos. "We have to get six points from the next games. "We didn't play well enough. Overall, we had our chances, but we weren't able to score. "We lost the ball up front far too easily and Mexico had always two or three people up front, who we failed to block efficiently." World Cup 2018 tactics: Why Germany's goalkeeper is key to how they attack Mats Hummels wasn't quite so nice about it: “Mexico deserved the win – our cover was often not good and we were left many times with Jérôme [Boateng] and myself at the back,” he said. “If seven of eight players are attacking then it’s clear our attacking power is greater. But that’s something that I have often talked about internally. It doesn’t always bear fruit. “A wake-up call is too late. We now must win two games, otherwise that is that with the World Cup. I don’t really understand why we played like we played because, really, we already had our wake-up call.” Credit: FIFA Supporters of both teams are having a lovely old time in the Russia sun (though those clouds look ominous) and team news will be with us really soon. When that happens we can try and figure out how both teams plan to approach this but you can bet Sweden will be a 4-4-2, low block and focus play down the wings, while Germany will be keen to AVENGE their opening game defeat. It could be a cracker, it could also be a frustrating 90 minutes for the Germans. Only time will tell! And that time is... soon.

Serena Williams deserves a seeding at this year’s Wimbledon, according to the three-time former champion John McEnroe, who said “I don’t think there would be a player that would complain”. At the moment, Williams is entitled to a protected ranking after missing more than a year’s tennis because of the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia. But the seeding question lies in the hands of the All England Club. It has a committee devoted to the subject, which will meet on Tuesday and deliver its verdict the following day. When the subject came up at the AELTC’s spring press conference at the start of May, some club officials expressed private concerns that by seeding Williams, they would be unfairly relegating another player who had worked all year for her place among the top 32. But when McEnroe was asked about the downsides of “de-seeding” the player in 32nd place on the pecking order, he shook his head. “What’s her name?” McEnroe replied. “No offence. You’re talking about Serena Williams. Our ratings on NBC, the day she played [against Kristyna Pliskova at the French Open last month], were 50 per cent more than it was a year ago. It’s like Tiger Woods when he came back. All of a sudden it’s top of the ratings. “Forget the fact that she has won 23 majors and what she brings to the table. You can’t tell me – I’m sorry, I apologise to the 32nd player in the world. That’s just the way it goes sometimes. I just don’t think it’s right to think that way. That’s me coming from a different viewpoint.” Catsuit anyone? For all the moms out there who had a tough recovery from pregnancy—here you go. If I can do it, so can you. Love you all!! pic.twitter.com/xXb3BKDGNF— Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) May 29, 2018 Williams has played only seven matches thus far this year, but her French Open campaign was gathering impressive momentum before she withdrew from her blockbuster fourth-round meeting with old rival Maria Sharapova, citing an injury to her right pectoral. On the back of seven Wimbledon titles, and the best serve the sport has ever seen, Williams is being quoted as second favourite by the bookies behind the 2011 and 2014 champion Petra Kvitova. So if she were to be seeded, what number should she be given? Kvitova was asked this question in Birmingham this week. After thinking it over for several seconds, she suggested ninth position. McEnroe, who will be commentating on Wimbledon for the BBC, also tended towards the higher end of the scale. “Somewhere between one and 10, one and 16 at the worst,” he said. “I don’t think there would be a player that would complain, especially the top ones, if she was one of the top eight. Why in the world would they want to play her in the first, second, third round? Nor should they, in my opinion.” The All England Club has rarely faced such tricky debates as it has this season, after last week’s decision to refuse Dan Evans a wild card. A seeding for Williams would represent a departure from normal policy. But then she is anything but a normal player. McEnroe’s comments came as the US Open confirmed yesterday that it would treat new mothers as special cases, and help them out with seedings where appropriate. Katrina Adams, president of the United States Tennis Association, told the New York Times that women in this situation should not be “penalised” for starting a family. “We think it’s a good message,” Adams explained. “It’s okay to become a mother and then come back to your job.”

The first rule of any press conference is that the last question is often the most dangerous and, boy, was England manager Gareth Southgate served up a curveball in front of a room full of reporters and broadcasters. A victory over Panama may lead England through the group stages of the World Cup, but it will not definitively tell us whether or not he is developing into a top-class manager. Hopefully, sterner tests later in the tournament will provide a better guide. But, ahead of the Panama clash, we were given another reminder that Southgate is already a world-class diplomat and ambassador for his country. “We have a phrase in China that we use for England called ‘happy football’,” said a Chinese reporter. “But I am afraid it is not positive. It is used because England’s mistakes are often hilarious and ridiculous, Sterling in particular. Are your players anxious?” The room erupted and Southgate could not help but laugh along as he considered his reply before sailing over the kind of hurdle that would have tripped up many of his predecessors. How England can get the job done against physical Panama “I think, in your description of ‘happy football’, I’m one of the most guilty people of a ‘happy football’ experience,” said Southgate, referencing his Euro 96 penalty shoot-out miss. “We have decades of those incidents. “But history is not the important thing for this team. They have an opportunity to create their own history. They should be excited about that. They’re a young team who will get better and better. I enjoy working with all of them and I’m intrigued to find out how far they can go and how well they can play. I hope we give you a different sort of ‘happy football’ over the next few weeks.” It was game, set and match Southgate, who had also navigated his way through more questions on his assistant Steve Holland accidentally leaking team plans during the week. Southgate, who is not wearing a sling despite dislocating his shoulder after falling over on a run, even took the unprecedented step of apologising to members of the press who had come under fire for reporting the story. Russia World Cup in pictures: Best photos of teams, games and players But there was a more important point in Southgate’s handling of the situation, which had highlighted the effects a tournament environment and cabin fever can have on mindsets. He said: “It’s a bonkers environment, isn’t it? It’s a real danger for us as a team that I’ve got to make sure we keep getting the lads out of the hotel, get their time with their families, get some broader perspective on things because we could get insular and defensive. “The danger is you lose that bit of life perspective. At your club you go home to your family and cuddle your kids, and you miss all of those other bits as I am sure you guys [the press] do as well. “So, I’ve got to keep getting people out in the fresh air and down to the less dangerous parts of the beach, where you can’t hurt yourself, and just keep it an environment where we’re relaxed and having fun because I think the players are responding well to that.” How England got their tactics right against Tunisia, thanks to Jordan Henderson England will have just over 2,000 supporters inside the Nizhny Novgorod stadium on Sunday, with many fans opting not to travel to Russia because of political tensions and security fears. The tournament has so far run smoothly and Southgate said: “There has obviously been a lot going on away from football in the lead up, but we can only speak of our own experiences. “I was here for the Confederations Cup last year and it was a brilliant event. Everything from training grounds to travel to stadia has been brilliant. It’s quite expensive for our fans to follow and there are internal flights here. We’re appreciative of the supporters who have come to support us. The vocal support of our fans the other night against Tunisia was brilliant and gave us a huge lift. “We have more numbers on Sunday, and even more in Kaliningrad [for the final group game against Belgium]. That’s always a huge lift. We’re desperate to repay them with a performance like the one we gave the other night.” Chinese football fans might have to rethink the meaning of ‘happy football’ if Southgate can show his managerial ability matches his diplomacy. He is certainly more Panama than tin hat. World Cup 2018 | The best of the Telegraph's coverage WorldCup - newsletter promo - end of article

Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri are facing punishment for their Albanian eagle salutes in Switzerland’s World Cup grudge match against Serbia. Fifa announced it has opened disciplinary proceedings against the players following a complaint from the Football Association of Serbia (FSS) about their goal celebrations during Friday night’s dramatic Group E game in Kaliningrad. The FSS also said it would lodge a formal protest about Shaqiri’s boots, which bears the flag of Kosovo - although they had already been cleared by Fifa - and the display of “several controversial flags” by their opponents. As well as the action against Xhaka and Shaqiri, proceedings were opened against the FSS itself for crowd disturbances and the display of political and offensive messages by Serbia fans, days after it was fined for a similar offence in their game against Costa Rica. And a preliminary investigation was opened against the team’s manager, Mladen Krstajic, for alleged statements made in the aftermath of the Switzerland match.

The offence carries an automatic two-match ban that would see both players miss Switzerland’s crucial final group match against Costa Rica and any last-16 tie. It appears unlikely they could face action for breaching rules on the display of political symbols given both Albania and Kosovo are members of Fifa and their flags are routinely displayed at international matches.

Fifa announced it has opened disciplinary proceedings against the players following a complaint from the Football Association of Serbia (FSS) about their goal celebrations during Friday night’s dramatic Group E game in Kaliningrad. The FSS also said it would lodge a formal protest about Shaqiri’s boots, which bears the flag of Kosovo - although they had already been cleared by Fifa - and the display of “several controversial flags” by their opponents. As well as the action against Xhaka and Shaqiri, proceedings were opened against the FSS itself for crowd disturbances and the display of political and offensive messages by Serbia fans, days after it was fined for a similar offence in their game against Costa Rica. And a preliminary investigation was opened against the team’s manager, Mladen Krstajic, for alleged statements made in the aftermath of the Switzerland match. Granit Xhaka also celebrates with the Albanian eagle Credit: getty images Fifa could not be reached for comment on the reasons behind Saturday night’s action and whether proceedings had been opened against Xhaka and Shaqiri for an alleged breach of Article 54 of its disciplinary code, which outlaws what is defined as “provoking the general public”. The offence carries an automatic two-match ban that would see both players miss Switzerland’s crucial final group match against Costa Rica and any last-16 tie. It appears unlikely they could face action for breaching rules on the display of political symbols given both Albania and Kosovo are members of Fifa and their flags are routinely displayed at international matches. Xhaka, whose family was forced to flee the Balkans after his father was jailed for campaigning for Kosovan independence, and Shaqiri, who was born in the former Serbian province, paid tribute to their roots after scoring on Friday. Xherdan Shaqiri's celebration was full of passion Credit: reuters Both were repeatedly jeered during the game - along with Switzerland’s other Balkan-blooded players - by fans or Serbia, whose government refuses to recognise Kosovo as an independent state. The FSS had also said it would complain about the non-award of a second-half penalty to Aleksandar Mitrovic after the Newcastle United striker was hauled to the ground by two defenders. Meanwhile, Fifa announced it had fined the Polish Football Association 10,000 Swiss francs (£7,625) for the display of a political and offensive banner during the match between Poland and Senegal and had opened disciplinary proceedings for crowd disturbances from both sets of fans during Croatia’s win over Argentina. That match saw a Croatia supporter set upon by Argentinian fans, with footage showing them kicking him repeatedly in the head.

Panama's manager has denied that leaked England line-up or the sporadic use of video review at the World Cup will give his team an edge when they face the Three Lions on Sunday. “It doesn't give me or afford me any advantage,” Hernan Dario Gomez said after Gareth Southgate's starting XI were accidentally revealed. “Each and every coach needs to make sure that they are 100 per cent prepared and ready regardless of the opponent, that players work well, know their football, keep up the good work, and from there go for the win.” Asked about Marcus Rashford being listed ahead of Raheem Sterling, he said “it doesn't matter who plays because the other one is just as good”. Notes photographed in assistant manager Steve Holland's hand on Thursday suggested that Rashfort will start instead of Sterling, who drew a blank against Tunisia, and that Ruben Loftus-Cheek will take the place of injured Dele Alli. Regardless of the lineup, England have far more depth than newcomers Panama, who are playing in their first-ever World Cup after they beat Costa Rica with a ghost goal and the United States lost to Trinidad and Tobago.

Midfielder Edgar Barcenas, who was seen in tears during a talk last week with the fierce Gomez, admitted the team suffered some “stage fright” during the Belgium match but would try “to enjoy things because that's the way you play”. World Cup 2018 Simulator Single Game Although the team are making their debut, their manager has the experience of coaching both Colombia and Ecuador in his four previous World Cups. Gomez has seen his share of adversity: He was Colombia assistant when Andres Escobar was assassinated after an own goal in 1994 and was even shot himself after dropping the president's son from the Ecuador youth team in 2001. Then Panama midfielder Amilcar Henriquez was shot to death outside his home last year during the qualification phase for this tournament, a loss that Gomez said “hurt us a lot”.

Gomez cited the incident as evidence of how problematic VAR can be and claimed it didn't factor into his game plan. “I don't give any specific instructions. We like to play hard,” he said. “I'm not dwelling on VAR at all, maybe others it affects their style of play but not us.” England may well be concerned, however, after striker Harry Kane was wrestled to the ground in the area without a penalty during the match with Tunisia.

He said Panama would focus on England's top players, although he refused to name anyone in particular. “We know these star players, we can't give them any space,” Gomez said. “There's only one ball on pitch and we're going to fight for it, we're not going to let them pass it around too much.” He admitted that England was one of his favourite sides and “a very beautiful and well organised team”: “We're going to be facing once again a rival that's excellent, that's better than us, and we need to try to keep him tied up.” WorldCup - newsletter promo - end of article World Cup 2018 | The best of the Telegraph's coverage
