Sweden coach Janne Andersson calls Germany behaviour 'scornful'

Should Sweden and Germany both achieve the same result, their goal difference will remain the same and the team going through will be the one that has scored most goals over three games.

If Germany falls to South Korea, a single point will get the job done for Sweden.

"When we heard, the group was annoyed, it is unacceptable", the 33-year-old Granqvist said of the vitriol aimed at Durmaz, born in Sweden to Turkish parents.

While a draw could see Serbia also advance to the knockout round, a win will guarantee them a place in the last 16 and their coach Mladen Krstajic has an eye on doing exactly that against one of the game's all-time most successful teams. "We have to be masters of our own destiny".

Sweden face an unlikely list of permutations, requiring a three points against Mexico and then relying on South Korea pulling off an unlikely victory against Germany - which, if Sweden beat Mexico, could open up a goal difference scenario which could potentially see the East Asian side through to the latter stages.

Janne Andersson's side started their World Cup with victory over South Korea and also led at half-time against holders Germany in their second game before Joachim Low's side snatched a last-gasp win.

"All I am saying is people behaved in ways you don't, you cheer when you win, you leave the opponents to feel sad, you don't react in the way they did".

That equalled the best appearance by Mexico at a World Cup. Meaning that keeping an eye on the results from both games will be required to determine who plays on in Russian Federation. Winning the group will be important since the finishing second will mean that they will have to play Brazil in the round of 16.

"There is an excessive responsibility on him in terms of success and that is not the way to go", said Tite. Maybe this team has fewer spaces than we did.

Each would have three points in games played against each other and an even goal differential against each other.

"I think it's another good generation that's coming up", Andersson told Goal.

Lionel Messi's Argentina, the losing finalists in 2014, were heading for a humiliating exit in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday before Marcos Rojo scored a stunning late victor to send Nigeria home.

"We do not tolerate a player being subjected to threats or abuse".

Messi scored his first goal at Russian Federation 2018 in the first half, but Victor Moses equalised shortly after half-time to put Argentina on the brink of bowing out. "But, you never know what can happen in the World Cup". A 2-1 win against South Korea in their next match strengthened their position at the top of the group.
