PORTO ALEGRE – 2nd rd: Germany 2, Algeria 1 after extra time
—- No African teams were left at the World Cup after Algeria were finally out-run by Germany in a tense second-round tie.
Nigeria had been eliminated earlier in the day by France but though Algeria took the Germans to extra time they were eventually beaten by strikes from Andre Schurrle and Mesut Ozil. A last-minute strike from Abdelmoumene Djabou was too little too late.
Germany now face France in Maracana in Rio de Janeiro on Friday.
