video: Germany 2 – 1 Algeria [World Cup] Highlights

The Chelsea forward turned home Thomas Muller’s cross before the Arsenal playmaker fired home just before Abdelmoumene Djabou scored a consolation in the dying seconds. Germany 2 – 1 Algeria

Germany secured a place in the quarter-finals of the World Cup after Andre Schurrle and Mesut Ozil struck in extra-time to seal a win 2-1 over Algeria on Monday.

After a pulsating 90 minutes in Porto Alegre had ended goalless, Chelsea forward Schurrle – on as a half-time substitute for Mario Gotze – cleverly flicked in Thomas Muller’s low cross two minutes into extra-time to give Germany the lead.

Ozil added a second late on to wrap up victory for Joachim Low’s side, before Algeria, who performed admirably throughout, gained a consolation through Abdelmoumene Djabou.

The result meant Algeria were unable to exact revenge for the “Disgrace of Gijon”, when West Germany and Austria played out a mutually beneficial 1-0 scoreline that saw both sides through from the group at the expense of Algeria in the 1982 finals in Spain.

With many pointing to that infamous match as motivation for Vahid Halilhodzic’s men in the build-up, Algeria flew out of the blocks in the opening 20 minutes, cutting through the German backline on a number of occasions and seeing an Islam Slimani goal disallowed for offside.
