The reigning champions lost 1-0 to Mexico in their opening match, and have not lost back-to-back matches in the same World Cup finals since 1958 - when they lost to Sweden in the semi-final and France in the third-place match.
The celebration was a rare display of such emotion from the German worldwide, who went through a range of emotions in Sochi on Saturday night.
"All I am saying is people behaved in ways you don't, you cheer when you win, you leave the opponents to feel sad, you don't react in the way they did".
Mexico could lose and also go through if Germany fails to win, but there is also a chance Mexico, Sweden and Germany all finish with six points, and then it will come down to tiebreakers, with goal differential being the first one. The level of play is still not at a top level at this World Cup.
How can Germany stun Sweden, right?

Supporters watching on big screens at the Brandenburg Gate huddled nervously under grey clouds and drizzle, before throwing their umbrellas away as Toni Kroos' late victor saved Germany.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his wife Kim Jung-sook looked on from the stands in the Rostov Arena as part of their three-day visit to Russian Federation, but a second consecutive 1-0 defeat leaves the 2002 semifinalists them on the brink of an early exit from the tournament. While a late goal from South Korea made the score close, the game, in reality, wasn't.
The Germans are deadly serious ahead of the Swedish match, knowing a second defeat will effectively send them home at the end of the group stages. However, Mexico truly dominated for stretches, and looked every bit as good as the team that knocked off Germany. South Korea, meanwhile, will be eliminated if Sweden wins or draws. Now, the group is wide open.
