Fuck me, Costa Rica 2 1 Germany as I type

Germany level now, and all that needs to happen for them to get out of the group is for Spain to score. On balance I think they will.

Germany in front now, no surprises there. But they need Spain to score!

Proper drama. Less than 5 minutes to go.

Shame Spain don't seem to have taken their foot off the gas. They're safe.

Slim

7 minutes of added time, that will be agony for the Japan fans.

Joyous watching Germany trying to score another goal when it's a lost cause. Amazing night.

Great for Japan, but that did look out - but apparently goal-line cameras caught it being in. Shame for Germany - NOT

Cracking night of football that, certainly the best game day so far.

Reaction in Der Spiegel, auto-translated by Google.

The small piece about the Japanese goal argues that it's probably valid. But mostly it's all about the team's failure, and Bierhoff and Flick not taking responsibility.

Must say the Google translation service has done a brilliant job here - it reads very naturally. A couple of minor failures -"DFB-Aus" has not been translated because it should have been rendered as two words, "DFB - Aus". And "DFB-Elf" is of course "DFB eleven". "But that's Der Spiegel's fault.

Jens Lehmann:

"There were some distractions about all the things going in Qatar, human rights and things like that. And the Germans right now they are hyper-critical because they think they always have to deal with other people's problems."

"We need to focus on the tournament, we need to focus performing really well, because there are millions of fans like myself, and we were expecting a little more than getting knocked for the second time in a row."

Congrats to South Korea, a super end to the game - and to put Uruguay out as well, a bonus. Getting rid of that cheating twat Suarez.

A bonkers game between Serbia and Switzerland. 3-2 so far for the Swiss. Great that both teams are really going for it though. At the moment any of Serbia, Switzerland or Cameroon can go through with Brazil.
