Kroos relieved to make amends for Germany at World Cup

Authorities closed down a portion of Whittier Boulevard in East Los Angeles as crowds formed to celebrate Mexicos second win in the World Cup on Saturday

Sweden's Jimmy Durmaz has denounced as "unacceptable" messages of racial hatred and even death threats after he gave away the foul that led to Toni Kroos's late victor for Germany at the World Cup.

Germany knows that they just need to better Sweden's result against Mexico, but it may not be quite so simple as a Sweden and Germany win would tie the top three sides in the group on six points.

They took the lead in Rostov-on-Don through Carlos Vela's penalty - the 14th of the tournament already - on 26 minutes after Jang Hyun-soo's handball.

"We do not tolerate a player being subjected to threats or abuse". The five-time champions head into their final group match against Serbia at Spartak Stadium in Moscow needing only a draw to advance. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.

Regardless of his first XI, Low warned that Germany must avoid running into counters against South Korea.

Jerome Boateng is suspended following his red card against Sweden, while Sebastian Rudy will also be sidelined after breaking his nose in the same game.

"We are going to make the most of it in spite of everyone, and we going to try to win".

As for South Korea, its unenviable task has been made even more hard by the news that midfielder Ki Sung-yueng is sidelined with a calf injury that rules him out for two weeks.

Bert van Marwijk feeling Australian ahead of facing 'emotional' Peru
It had been a long time before Peru had found the net in a World Cup. "I don't think you must force something from the beginning". It's a must-win game for the Socceroos, but a dead rubber for Peru who can not progress after 1-0 defeats to Denmark and France.

Authorities: 7 arrests in connection with fatal stabbing
Guzman-Feliz's death sent shockwaves through the community, and on social media, as the hashtag #JusticeforJunior began trending. According to the New York Post , the Trinitarios "top leader" got in touch with the family to apologise for the slaying.

The most recent World Cup meeting between South Korea and Germany was at the Koreans' home World Cup in 2002, with the hosts losing 1-0 in the semi-finals.

South Korea's only victory against Germany came in a friendly match in 2004 (3-1).

The defending champions put in a nervous display after a barrage of criticism following defeat by Mexico.

FIFA has fined two German football federation officials for provoking Sweden's bench while celebrating victory in a World Cup game.

They surely won't have any more slip-ups this time, against a South Korea side who have been beaten in both their games so far.

Andersson, still clearly furious about what he previously described as Germany "rubbing it in our faces", said: "If I had not responded I would have been dead inside". The Brazilian-born player was then politely told to "F**K OFF TO BRAZIL, I F***ING CALLED IT" and reminded: "They did not want you in your homeland so you were given Polish citizenship".

- greatest number of goals scored in all group matches. The chests will be puffed out now and we'll see a return to the Germany we all know.
