FULL TIME. What an end to that match - the red card and then that magnificent goal from Toni Kroos. Germany needn't think they're safe - they still need something against South Korea - and Sweden will be gutted they couldn't hold that lead. Thanks for your company this evening.
- GoalToni KroosGermany
GOAL! And Kroos makes them pay for that error, curling in that free kick exquisitely, past the despairing hand of poor Olsen.
Durmaz gives away a free kick just outside the box with just half a minute left of added time.

Berg trudges off, applauding the fans, as he is replaced by Thelin.
Great save from Olsen, tipping the ball over the bar from a close-range header from Gomez.
- OffJonas HectorGermany
- OnJulian BrandtGermany
Brandt on now - Germany have only two defenders on the pitch.
Apparently the referee was waiting for the players to get back to their feet before sending Boateng off. Not sure what kind of reasoning that is.
Berg has his head in his hands - Neuer slips when coming to punch the ensuing free kick and the ball skews wide.
Oh! The referee has suddenly changed his mind! Boateng is off!
Boateng upends Berg but no second booking is forthcoming.
Germany are pressing now, and they really should be doing better with converting these chances.
- OffOla ToivonenSweden
- OnJohn GuidettiSweden
Toivanen is replaced by Guidetti.
Almost an own goal! The ball is pinging around in the Sweden box again and Olsen desperately gets the touch away.
- Yellow cardJérôme BoatengGermany
Boateng seems fortunate to have left it this late before getting booked. This time he launches himself at Forsberg.
Gomes is looking at the assistant referee all the time here before he blazes his shot over.
Germany are really piling on the pressure now, and even the previously solid Olsen is looking a little wobbly at the amount of work he's having to do.
Marco Reus tries a cheeky back heel towards the goal now he's broken that international goal drought that stretched back three and a half years.
This has become very end to end now after Germany dominated the start of both halves.
Werner gets the cross in to Hector, whose shot is poor, to say the least, and Olsen gets low to make the save.
- Yellow cardAlbin EkdalSweden
Ekdal gets the evening's first booking for a shoulder charge.
Comes to nothing, and Olsen takes his time as he prepares for his goal kick.
Now a free kick to Germany just outside the box, conceded by Lindelof.
Germany are chasing a second now, and Kroos loops in a cross from the left to the far post, but nobody is there to meet it.

- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME. So Sweden took the lead with a wonderfully-constructed goal, Germany are on their way out of the World Cup.
CLOSE! Great ball from Larsson, terrific header from Berg, and a marvellous save from Neuer.
Two minutes to be added on.
Actually to be fair there Hector was putting the pressure on and made it difficult for Claesson to keep his balance.
What a great, swift counter from Sweden, and a terrific ball from the left drops to the feet of Claesson, whose first touch is a shocker.
The ball is pinging around in the Sweden box, taking deflections and Olsen manages a quick double save to concede a corner.
Germany look so puzzled now, Sweden are hyped. Rudiger hacks the ball clear.
Kimmich runs down the right and then hits a ridiculous cross which is way above the far post.
If this score stays the same, Germany are out. OUT.
- GoalOla ToivonenSweden
GOAL! Sweden take the lead, such a smart looping shot from Toivonen over the head of Neuer, who's left helpless. Great ball from Claesson too.
- OffSebastian RudyGermany
- OnIlkay GündoganGermany
Substitution - Gundogan is on in place of Rudy, whose nose is still streaming, and who had stripped off in an effort to change into a non-blood-soaked kit before the change was made.
Headed away by Werner.
First corner of the evening for Sweden.
Germany have had more than three-quarters of the possession so far.
So Germany are temporarily down to ten men while he changes his shirt, and Sweden try to get some possession.
His nose is pouring with blood and that looks very sore.
Rudy is down on the floor having taken an accidental boot to the face. Ouch.
Swung in to the near post and little Larsson rises to head that away.
Third corner of the evening for Germany.
The Sweden fans are looking very bright and consistently yellow.
Kimmich loops in a deflected cross, but Olsen is fouled as he attempts to claim.
Germany moving down the left with Reus, with Rudy eventually having a very limp shot along the ground from the edge of the box.
Draxler trying to calm it down a little bit in the centre of the field.
Sweden are not best pleased with the lack of consideration given to that.
WHAT?! Berg is through on goal, Boateng nudges him in the back, and the Sweden player careens into Neuer. Nothing given - no VAR!
Germany are dominating possession and just stroking the ball round with intent.
Reus getting himself involved now, and it's a corner to Germany, taken short.
Draxler squares the ball across the face of goal but nobody is there to get the necessary final touch.
Claesson launches a counterattack for Sweden, and it's Forsberg who bears down on goal but is muscled off the ball before he can crack a shot.
Kimmich swings a ball across from the right, but it's cleared quickly.
Neuer gets himself in prime sweeper-keeper form, chesting the ball down in the D.
CLOSE! Draxler fires his shot against the body of Larsson from close range.
Germany start with a move down the left, getting Hector involved early.
Time for the national anthems.
Agree with the Hoff? Or do you think Germany will lose two World Cup matches on the bounce?
Sweden haven't beaten Germany in 40 years. Tonight seems a pretty good time to break that streak.
