FULL TIME. What an end to that match - the red card and then that magnificent goal from Toni Kroos. Germany needn't think they're safe - they still need something against South Korea - and Sweden will be gutted they couldn't hold that lead. Thanks for your company this evening.

Brandt on now - Germany have only two defenders on the pitch.

- 

Apparently the referee was waiting for the players to get back to their feet before sending Boateng off. Not sure what kind of reasoning that is.

83' 

Berg has his head in his hands - Neuer slips when coming to punch the ensuing free kick and the ball skews wide.

82'

Oh! The referee has suddenly changed his mind! Boateng is off!

81' 

Boateng upends Berg but no second booking is forthcoming.

80' 

Germany are pressing now, and they really should be doing better with converting these chances.

68'

Gomes is looking at the assistant referee all the time here before he blazes his shot over.

66' 

Germany are really piling on the pressure now, and even the previously solid Olsen is looking a little wobbly at the amount of work he's having to do.

Marco Reus tries a cheeky back heel towards the goal now he's broken that international goal drought that stretched back three and a half years.

45'+1 

CLOSE! Great ball from Larsson, terrific header from Berg, and a marvellous save from Neuer.

45' 

Two minutes to be added on.

- 

Actually to be fair there Hector was putting the pressure on and made it difficult for Claesson to keep his balance.

44' 

What a great, swift counter from Sweden, and a terrific ball from the left drops to the feet of Claesson, whose first touch is a shocker.

39'

Headed away by Werner.

29' 

First corner of the evening for Sweden.

- 
- 

Germany have had more than three-quarters of the possession so far.

So Germany are temporarily down to ten men while he changes his shirt, and Sweden try to get some possession.

- 

His nose is pouring with blood and that looks very sore.
