Germany 2 x 1 Algeria 2014 World Cup Extended Goals Highlights HD
The Algerian shirt 13, best on the field in the victory against South Korea and in the tie with Russia, seemed tireless. He pulled the mark, waited for any of the fickle Mertesacker and Boateng to act, put Neuer to give a saving cart to the middleman ... He still had the company of Feghouli, the playmaker of the team, and Soudani, owner of good passes. There was even a goal that the Brazilian refereeing trio, led by Sandro Meira Ricci, did not cancel.
Germany, with an all-powerful body, practically did not move, except for a tough Thomas Müller and another rare exception. Nor did he finish, a natural consequence of a team that could not even blame the heat so mentioned in the first phase in the Northeast. It was almost 10ºC cold in Beira-Rio, something close to what the Germans are used to. And the European team did not react until the end, when Kroos realized that the space in the middle allowed the finishing. In one, M'Bolhi rebounded, but Götze missed.
Löw saw a team that was addicted, tangled and that facilitated the marking of Africans. He put Schürrle, a forward, in the place of Götze. It has improved to the point of offering its fans some hope of good football. Schürrle twice, Höwedes and Lahm almost opened the scoring. Algeria was reduced to counterattacks and crosses, but one or another exchange of passes was enough to elicit screams of "oil" from the stands. Still, he managed to sustain himself - the Germans' initial momentum waned.
Algeria enjoyed the game again. Feghouli, Slimani and Soudani flirted with the goal of heroism and turned the game into an exciting game. Müller, on the right, made a beautiful play that ended with Schweinsteiger's header out. The number 13 went to the area in the next move and forced M'Bolhi to perform a miracle. Then he dominated in the area and amended from the right out.
The applause for the final whistle already indicated a feeling of accomplishment on the part of Africans. Painted-face fans turned to the cameras, waving their flags. Beira-Rio was happy to be able to watch another 30 minutes and keep the dream of seeing another zebra walking around Brazil.
It lasted just over a minute. After the ball was out, Germany quickly regained possession and in three touches Müller was already invading the area. The cross came a little behind the planned, but Schürrle, letter, managed to deflect to the networks: 1 to 0 and enormous relief for the Europeans.
Lighter, Germany kept the pace. Müller almost extended in finishing from outside the box. Khedira, back there was a huge scare when punching the post-corner ball - Mostefa took advantage of the leftovers and finished off. In the end, a game to catch fire: Özil, in the 14th minute, expanded after hesitating against the goalkeeper. Djabou, in additions, took advantage of a hole in the area to cash. But there was no time to seek a tie.
