Gary Lineker's Tweet About Germany's Dramatic World Cup Victory Instantly Goes Viral
Germany's dramatic World Cup victory against Sweden has sent Twitter into meltdown, which includes a viral Tweet from Gary Lineker.
The defending World Champions needed a result tonight following their surprising defeat to Mexico.
Joachim Low rang the changes by dropping midfield pair Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira. Fresh faces were drafted in but to no effect.
Well, it seemed that way until the 95th bloody minute.
Sweden took the lead in the first-half, with Germany eventually leveling in the second-half through Marco Reus. But it looked as if the Germans were on the brink of elimination.
However, Toni Kroos had other ideas.
He netted a superb free-kick to seal an incredible win, and three vital points ahead of facing South Korea next Wednesday.
Naturally, social media exploded into life with Lineker's Tweet instantly going viral racking up thousands and thousands of Retweets
