Toni Kroos sure has a flare for the dramatic.
A draw would have taken Germany's fate out of their hands and left the defending champions facing elimination heading into the final round of group-stage fixtures.
Luckily for Joachim Low's side, Kroos had other plans. The midfielder curled home a fantastic free-kick in the 95th minute, giving Germany a dramatic 2-1 win.
The goal naturally sent social media into a frenzy. Here are a few of the best reactions.
