Germany came from behind to beat Sweden in an exhilarating World Cup tie on Saturday night that was finished by a stunning free-kick winner from Toni Kroos, deep into added time.
The Swedes led at the break before an equaliser shortly after half-time and the game looked to be heading for a draw when Jérôme Boateng was sent off for a second bookable offence.
But the Germans returned from the brink of elimination at the group stage for the first time in 80 years, following a foul on the edge of the area.
The result leaves both sides still in with a chance of progressing from Group F and into the last 16.
These were the best of the jokes from Germany 2-1 Sweden at Russia 2018:

I've got to say I really like the look of the Swedish bench…
Only £12.99 from Ikea.

Would Germany like to me invade Sweden during half time? #GERSWE

Jesus. Can't have Germany going out in the groups. If the last time that happened was 1938, to say they took it badly is an understatement. #GERSWE

I should‘ve known this was going to be another nerve-wrecking game, ever since my Ikea shelve mystiriously fell from the wall this morning. #GERSWE
