Sami Khedira deserves an award for keeping his cool as a reporter tried his utmost to grind his gears ahead of Germany’s crucial Group F clash with Sweden.
Germany are in desperate need of a victory over Sweden following a disastrous 1-0 defeat to Mexico in their opening match of the World Cup. Three of the last four holders have failed to progress from the group stage and Joachim Low’s side do not wish to add to that list.
In the lead-up to this weekend’s all-important clash in Sochi, a cocky Swedish reporter/troll attempted to rile Germany midfielder Khedira – but failed miserably. Ludvig Holmberg, working for Expressens, told Khedira: ‘When you lose against Sweden on Saturday, you’re already on your way home so I have some boarding passes for you and your teammates.
The reporter in question did not get the reaction he would have hoped for as Khedira refused to rise to the bait. ‘Thank you so much but maybe we won’t need it,’ the Juventus man said.
