A highly unorthodox but effective game from the keeper, who played the role of sweeper numerous times to bail out his defense.
Really struggled to defend his flank against the pace of Algeria at times. Departed with an injury late on.
Assured and defensively aware in midfield and gave a great two-way performance once moved to right back.
The old lack of speed complaint was evident in the first half as he was beaten to the ball on a few occasions. Solidified in the second half.
Looked somewhat shaky in the first half but came up with a few key defensive plays in the latter stages of the game.
Solid enough on the right, though he was beaten once by a Feghouli run in the first half.
Never got going in this game, neither creating nor getting on the end of chances. Subbed at halftime.
Came to the fore later in the game as he saw a few chances denied by M'Bolhi.
Once or twice he had a go from long range but he was somewhat conservative with his passing.
Showcased only flashes of quality all game, but was determined at the end to smash home the late clincher.
Once again decisive when it mattered. His low cross found Schurrle for the all-important opener.
Unlucky to be on the losing side. A series of acrobatic saves kept his side in the game right until the end.
Lost Muller on the flanks in the build-up to Germany's goal and wasn't as assured as Ghoulam on the opposite side.
Succumbed to cramp late on, but he, like Belkalem, was on his game from the first whistle, making several key plays at the back.
At the heart of Algeria's best spells, providing some quality deliveries out from the left flank.
A rock in the heart of defense, getting in the way of numerous German attacks.
Always active on the flanks and even though his decision making did more harm than good at times, he was still a threat.
Never managed to match the efforts of his other attacking colleagues, looking steps behind the flow of the game.
Helped to patrol the area in front of the back four and laid on a handful of quality balls forward.
Conceded the midfield battle on more than one occasion and struggled to break the spells of German possession.
Really industrious on the flanks but unfortunately lacked quality in his end product.
Worked the center backs all game and was an excellent outlet for his side. Had he received better service then he could well have got on the scoresheet.
