Comrade of the Day: Matchday TEN

This was one of the easiest decisions we've had so far as, with the strike of a last-minute free-kick, Toni Kroos became the man of Matchday Ten - our Comrade of the Day.

Germany were struggling for a second time at this World Cup and at times, looked like they were on the brink of an early exit. Sweden were solid and after a wonderfully taken goal from Ola Toivonen, it was looking like our Comrade of the Day would be a Swede.

But you can never rule out the Germans. Back they came in the second half as they forced one in via Marco Reus. Then it the struggle for the winner and it went on and on and on and on. When Jerome Boateng's disastrous night came to an end with a second yellow card, the struggle became even bigger.

But such a narrative only made Tony Kroos' winner, a wide free-kick from a silly angle, even more of an incredible moment. 95 minutes on the clock and suddenly 3 points on the board for Germany, whose fate is back in their own hands.
