Round of 16

Germany vs Sweden

Germany progressed thanks to two goals from Lukas Podolski inside the opening 12 minutes. His first was in the fourth minute; German captain Michael Ballack sent a pass to Miroslav Klose, who was tackled by goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson, only for an onrushing Podolski to turn the ball in.[1] Eight minutes later, a pass from Klose found Podolski, who scored his second goal.[1] On 35 minutes, Teddy Lučić received a second yellow card for a foul on Klose.[1] In the 52nd minute, Henrik Larsson won a penalty for Sweden when he was challenged by Christoph Metzelder, only for Larsson himself to shoot the ball over the crossbar.[2] Afterwards, Germany held out for a 2–0 win.
