Rampant Mexico see off South Korea to close on last 16

"I am Swedish and I am proud to be wearing this shirt and our flag".

Anger wasn't limited to the pitch, however, as a stream of abuse began on Durmaz's Instagram account shortly after Kroos' goal.

Durmaz helped set Germany's victory by fouling a player who was subsequently awarded a free kick, which would go on to become the goal that did Sweden in. "You win as a team and you lose as a team", midfielder Albin Ekdal told the daily Aftonbladet. "That got me angry", said Andersson. I want to thank the fine, wonderful people who spread joy.

Earlier in the day, general secretary Hakan Sjostrand confirmed the Swedish FA had reported the abuse to police on behalf of the player. It warms us all. "Completely unacceptable", he added.

The 29-year-old was later targeted on social media, and on Sunday the Sweden squad stood behind Durmaz as he read a statement before shouting "f*** racism" in unison.

Toni Kroos' last-minute victor for Germany against Sweden later on Saturday means Mexico need a point against Sweden in their final group match to guarantee progress. "We have humility but we beat Germany and South Korea and now we have to play against Sweden and stay cool and calm", goalscorer Hernandez said.

"They have very fast and alert forwards, they are probably the opposite of Sweden, who have a strong and physical presence, whereas South Korea play with small, speedy and alert players", said Werner.

"Maybe there was unnecessary anger [from me], but they apologised afterwards so it's just a case of accepting it".

A win over Mexico will guarantee Sweden passage from the group stages into the Round of 16. We obviously also didn't score on a couple of clear opportunities but what I did appreciate was the spirit of the team.
