Mexico win ushers in uneasy truce between Osorio and critics

Guillermo Ochoa Mexico

Should he play, all eyes will be on the forward's response to the racist social media abuse he received in the wake of the incident, and which prompted Sweden's squad to issue of united condemnation of the perpetrators.

Kroos's stunning free-kick five minutes into added time sealed a 2-1 win to keep alive Germany's hopes following their defeat to Mexico in their opening Group F match.

At the end of the message, Durmaz turned behind him, and, in a moving show of solidarity his colleagues responded with a statement that showed exactly what they thought of their friend's tormentors. That is completely unacceptable. "But I'm not blaming anyone tactically or analysing too much right now, there are so many emotions going around. I am Swedish and I am proud to be wearing this shirt and our flag".

"I can be criticised for my performance. but there is a line, and that line was crossed yesterday", Durmaz said in a statement he read out to reporters at the team's Black Sea coast base in Gelendzhik on Sunday.

"We want to win the group and we want to win our next game (against Sweden) as getting nine points in a World Cup would mean we are doing something unique".

The chain of abuse was met with outrage from observers and Durmaz's fans.

The enraged Swedish coaching staff and reserve players then stood up and immediately confronted them, shoving them back towards their technical area.

The Swedish tactic of closing down the centre of defence and allowing the Germans space on the wings appeared to be paying off until Kroos' late goal.

"South Korea have very fast, agile and versatile players who create a lot of problems for many teams", said Reus, who expects the Asian team to copy Mexico's tactics of counter-attacking through Germany's midfield.

"Reus started having cramp in his legs, Boateng will not be in the line-up, Rudy broke his nose and we probably need a day of rest".

"Overall, we once again had phases where we played really well and didn't use our chances".

"So I was very angry", he said.

After the win over Germany, veteran Rafa Marquez said, "We dedicate the win to (Osorio) because he deserves it the most".

"You shouldn't celebrate in front of our bench the way they did, that's disrespectful, " Guidetti said.

Sweden can ensure its place in the knockout round by beating Mexico in its final group game on Wednesday.
