World Cup day 10 results
This proved to be quite an exciting day in Russia. The day started with Belgium versus Tunisia, this match was followed by South Korea versus Mexico and the day ended with the match between Sweden and Germany.
Belgium versus Tunisia
The game was on right from the start. Eden Hazard was brought down in Tunisia’s penalty box which was rewarded with a penalty. The Chelsea star took his responsibility and netted the penalty. Romelu Lukaku scored Belgium’s second goal ten minutes later. Both teams gave the football fans what they were waiting for. A whole lot of goals. In the end this match finished in a 5-2 victory for Belgium, which brings them on the verge of qualification for the knock-out stages.
South Korea versus Mexico
South Korea needed a result from this match to keep their hopes of for the knockout stages. Mexico surprised the football community with a victory over Germany and started really well again. Carlos Vela opened the score from the penalty spot in the 26th minute. This goal came after a very strong period by the Mexicans. The were the clear better team and scored 2-0 in the 66th minute. Heung-Min Son did something back for the Koreans, but Mexico in the end won this match with 2-1.
Germany versus Sweden
This match was very important for both teams. Germany needed to win to avoid elimination, while Sweden could use a draw to give themselves a good position for the last match. It was Sweden who brutally took the lead in the 32nd minute. Marco Reus equalised the score at the start of the second half. For a few minutes this goal looked to be the confidence boost Germany needed. But it didn’t take them a long time to start playing shite again. Toni Kroos was one of the worst players on the pitch, until the very last second of the match. He scored a screamer of a free-kick bringing his team the vital three points.
