Germany was moments away from losing control of its World Cup destiny with a disappointing performance against Sweden, but Real Madrid star Toni Kroos delivered a late-winner to keep the defending champions alive in Russia.

Sweden was controversially denied a penalty in the first half, but the underdogs scored on a counter-attack and took a 1-0 into halftime.

Marco Reus equalized for Germany moments into the second half, but Germany was wasteful in the final third of the field despite holding onto nearly 75 percent of the possession throughout the game.

An unnecessary tackle from Jerome Boateng earned him a second yellow card and reduced Germany to 10 men for the final eight minutes of regulation and five minutes of stoppage time, but the shorthanded Germans kept the ball in Sweden's end they desperately probed for a goal. Substitute Julian Brandt rattled the post and Mario Gomez forced Robin Olsen to make a great save, but Sweden held on - until Toni Kroos curled a spectacular shot around the Swedish wall off a free kick in the final minute of stoppage time.

Germany stole all three points with the goal, and now have a clear path to the knockout round - although the defending champions may have to settle for the runner-up spot. Germany will be heavily favored to win a match against South Korea on June 27th, while Sweden will face Group F leader Mexico. If Mexico wins or draws, El Tri will win Group F.

If Sweden beats Mexico and Germany beats South Korea, all three teams will finish with six points and the places will be determined by goal difference (and if necessary as a further tiebreaker, total goals scored).

Kickoff: Well-rested Kane still tops World Cup scorers .
When Harry Kane takes the field for England on Tuesday, it will be his first match in nine days. He's still the leading scorer at the World Cup. Meanwhile, Colombia forward James Rodriguez — the top scorer in Brazil four years ago — hasn't found the net, and it's not certain he'll get a chance to change that against England because of a calf injury.Measure Kane's five goals against Rodriguez's uneven, injury-interrupted play, and it's easy to see why England has been a darling of the World Cup and Colombia has yet to impose its will upon the tournament.
