Sweden's Jimmy Durmaz racially abused via social media after World Cup defeat

Guillermo Ochoa of Mexico gives a thumbs up to fans after the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group F match between Korea Republic and Mexico at Rostov Arena

Substitute Durmaz gave away the stoppage-time free kick that led to Toni Kroos' stunning late victor in the Group F clash, and the stream of invective on the 29-year-old's Instagram account began nearly as soon as the goal was scored.

"When you threaten me, when you call me a "blatte" (a pejorative word for a dark-skinned foreigner), an "Arab devil", a "terrorist", "Taliban", then you have gone far beyond the limit", he said.

Jimmy Durmaz and the rest of the Sweden squad took a powerful stand against racism as the nation's football association made complaints of online abuse on behalf of the winger to police. Who does such a thing? "It" is completely unacceptable", Durmaz said in Swedish.

Scribner said in a Facebook post that passengers onboard were all smiling and enjoying Cook having someone to talk to. Scribner's post on Facebook has gone viral with more than 300,000 likes and 177,000 shares.

"I am Swedish, and with pride I wear our shirt and our flag". We all have to make a stand against racism.

The KFA official questioned why the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system was not used to review the incident, which South Korea coach Shin Tae-yong described as "100 percent a foul". Slowly, one person after another walked out of the room in disbelief as I just sat there watching the reply over and over again.

"It was just bad luck, " Sweden forward John Guidetti said.

"But I'm not blaming anyone tactically or analysing too much right now, there are so many emotions going around".

Mexico striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez doesn't let his inability to stay in tune get in the way of an incredibly passionate national anthem.

Having lost their opening game to Mexico, the Germans looked to be heading for a draw until the Real Madrid midfielder Kroos curled in a superb strike from wide on the left to secure victory for the four-times world champions.

'Missing county stint, a blessing in disguise'
Strategy never changes from series to series. "You have a certain ability but if you are fit then you can enhance it". He added: "Our focus will be on winning the match, it won't be about what me or any one player does on the tour.

The chain of abuse was met with outrage from observers and Durmaz's fans.
