Sweden's Jimmy Durmaz has denounced as "unacceptable" messages of racial hatred and even death threats after he gave away the foul that led to Toni Kroos's late victor for Germany at the World Cup.

Before a training session on Sunday, Durmaz - standing in front of the rest of the Sweden squad and beside coach Janne Andersson - read out a statement to the media from a mobile phone.

"Some of the German leaders of the team celebrated by running in our direction and rubbing into our faces by making gestures and that really got me annoyed and angry", said the Sweden coach whose team had led 1-0.

Sweden substitute Pontus Jansson said he had lost his temper with the Germans but accepted they had ultimately regretted their actions. "At this World Cup, a lot of goals have come at the end (of games) and today luck was on our side". I didn't witness that because after the final whistle we were concentrating on other things.
