3 min: Germany make a fast start, probing down the right. Kimmich gets in and the ball finds its way to Draxler, who’s denied from close range! Werner also can’t turn it in and Sweden somehow scramble the ball clear.
Peep! Sweden, in blue shirts and yellow shorts, get the game underway. They’re kicking from right to left in the first half and immediately launch the ball long. Germany are in white shirts and black shorts. They attack down the left and Muller sends a cross into the area. It evades everyone. “At least with Messi,you could explain away his ineffectiveness by not having the Barcelona players around him; but for Ozil his interest in his Arsenal team-mates always looked fairly lukewarm, so their replacement by better players ought to have had a more salutary effect,” Charles Antaki says. “Low must have suspected that Ozil was living some sort of Emirates flash-back, and decided on a merciful release.”
