Germany will face France in the quarter-finals, but it took extra-time goals from André Schürrle and Mesut Özil to deny Algeria in Porto Alegre.
Les Fennecs threatened the shock of the FIFA World Cup as they took the game to their opponents. They dominated the first half, and while the second period was more even it was anybody's tie going into the additional 30 minutes. The stretching Schürrle quickly made it Germany's, somehow directing Thomas Müller's low cross into the net. Özil doubled the advantage a minute from time but still Algeria would not be beaten, Abdelmoumene Djabou sliding in to make it 2-1.
