Staring an embarrassing elimination from the Group Stage of the World Cup after being down 1-0 to Sweden at Halftime Saturday night, Germany scored two goals in the second half to beat the Swedes 2-1, including one in the last minute of stoppage time. Now, Germany, who lost to Mexico last week, are in a much better position to advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. Here are some tweets from people burying and clowning the Germans after the Swedes scored the first goal of the match in the 32nd minute.
As an English-born football fan, I have to say this: watching Germany stumble and flounder in World Cup qualifying group stage is the most astonishing sight I have witnessed in sports. Makes me question EVERYTHING I thought was true in life. Like, maybe the Earth IS Flat????
