The number of 21 goals created after 90 minutes of normal time is also a new record in the World Cup. Even if the ‘late goals’ in the three previous World Cup editions summed up is still inferior to what happened in Russia this year.
Here are 5 most dramatic injury time goals in the 2018 World Cup
1. Serbia vs Switzerland (1-2)
Serbia vs Switzerland became a crucial game for both teams to keep their chance to qualify for the next round as a companion of Brazil in Group E.
Serbia took the lead in a five-minute run through Aleksandar Mitrovic, which Granit Xhaka returned at the start of the second half.
Switzerland finally won with a score of 2-1 after Xherdan Shaqiri scored in the 90th minute. Goals that keep the Swiss door into the round of 16 large remain open.
2. Tunisia vs England (1-2)
England like still a little nervous in the first game. Although it was superior first through Harry Kane in the 11th minute, Tunisia equalized through a penalty Ferjani Sassi in 35 minutes.
Harry Kane became the star of The Three Lions in the game after he returned to break the goal Tunisia in 90 minutes +1.
3. Brazil vs Costa Rica (2-0)
Down with a 5-4-1 formation, Costa Rica really makes Brazil hassle to make a goal. Until the game went in injury time, the score is still 0-0. The Samba team desperately needed a win after in the first match just a 1-1 with Switzerland.
Philippe Coutinho finally relieved the tension in the Brazilian camp after he scored in the 90th minute +1. Neymar ensure Brazil achieve full points after joining the goal in Costa Rica 90 + 7 minutes.
4. Germany vs Sweden (2-1)
After losing a shock 1-0 to Mexico in the inaugural match, there is no other choice for Germany except to win in a duel with Sweden. Germany increasingly depressed after Ola Toivonen goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in minute 32.
Marco Reus could have leveled early in the second half, but Germany’s effort to win a heavy because Jerome Boateng red carded on 82 minutes.
It was Toni Kroos who later became a German hero. He scored a goal that changed the position so 2-1 in minute 90 + 5.
5. Belgium vs Japan (3-2)
This is the most dramatic match in this 2018 World Cup (at least until the last 16). Japan, who made a surprise escape from the group phase, is likely to present another surprise when it was able to lead 2-0 early in the second half over Sweden.
But Sweden then showed why they deserve a World Cup champion. Vincent Kompany et al can equalize to 2-2.
When the game entered the 90 minutes + 4 Belgium to build a counter-attack flash and goal-tipped.
