The Real Madrid star curled home a late free-kick to give Germany a vital win over Sweden in the dying moments on Saturday

Toni Kroos sure has a flare for the dramatic. 

With Germany and Sweden tied 1-1 in the dying seconds of Saturday's World Cup Group F encounter, the Real Madrid midfielder stepped up to take a free-kick on the side of the penalty area. 

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. 

Germany will look to advance to the last 16 when they take on South Korea in their final group match on Wednesday.
