Winning the victory in their first match of the FIFA World Cup in Russia, Sweden will now play against the current champion Germany in Group F. Sweden would like to end their 60-year drought in this match. On the other hand, Germany, who have been defeated in the first match, will try to return.
The first match was awarded to Korea
Sweden defeated South Korea 1-0 in their first World Cup match, thanks to which the team is at the top of Group-F with three points. At the same time, after losing his first match to Mexico, Germany is at number three in the group and in order to keep their hopes of reaching the last 16, they have to win all the matches in a match against Sweden. If Germany’s team loses against Sweden and if Mexico wins Korea or draws, then the current champion will almost be out of the tournament.
In the first half of his first match, Sweden defeated South Korea 1-0 in the second half with a goal from captain Andreas Grankiewicz on penalties. The team would like to perform this charisma against Granquist Germany and get a last-16 ticket to Sweden. Granquist is the first Swedish player to score a penalty in World Cup after Heinrich Larsen in 2002.
For Sweden, Alexander Johnson had practiced yesterday with the team before the match and he could be part of the team in the match. Johnson was not able to play in the first match against South Korea due to illness. On Friday, more than half of the team’s team made their sweat on the field while the rest played in the gym. If Sweden is successful in winning the Mubabal, then it will be his second consecutive win against Germany in 60 years in the World Cup.
Sweden defeated Germany for the last World Cup in their World Cup held in 1958. Sweden’s Victor Claeson must avoid any violation of the rules, otherwise it may be difficult to play in the next match. Klassen got the yellow card in the first match.
Germany have lost their first match
On the other hand, after losing the first match, pressure on existing champion Germany to enter the next round has increased. German forward Thomas Muller has also accepted this fact. The team had to beat 0-1 in Mexico in the first match, thanks to Irvig Lojano’s only goal. Germany got an opportunity to score in this match in the 65th and 78th minute but their players missed out.
The team would want to improve their previous mistakes and compete against Sweden. Everyone in the match will be seen on Mets Hummels and Thomas Muller, who got the yellow card in the first match. If both of these players get a yellow card in this match then they can get suspended from the next match.
In the World Cup, Germany and Sweden have been face-to-face four times so far, in which Germany has won three times, while Sweden has managed to win once.
