Germany literally ripped victory from the hands of their Swedish adversaries some 10 seconds before added time, shocking both fans and users on social media.

The Germany — Sweden match in Sochi Saturday June 23 looked as if it would end in a 1-1 draw. The first goal was scored by Sweden's Ola Toivonen. Marko Rois of German national team equalized the score during the second period. Jerome Boateng, a German defender, was removed from the game after receiving two yellow cards.

Toni Kroos then suddenly managed a brilliant curling free-kick that saved the German team from going home and, in doing so, he snatched the love of people on social networks.

Many users noted that this 2018 Russia World Cup has returned football to its former glory as the world's most popular team sport.

The German Team now needs to score a victory against South Korea to advence out of the first round — a perspective that seemed unlikely up to the last minute of the game.
