Germany Prevails in Extra Time Over Algeria

Martin Rose/Getty Images(PORTO ALEGRE, BRAZIL) -- Algeria held tough against the powerhouse Germans, but in the end, the Germans survived and advanced to the World Cup quarterfinals by winning 2-1 in extra time Monday.

In actuality, it was only a matter of time before the Germans scored; they outshot Algeria 28-10. The scoring started in the second minute of extra time when substitute Andre Schurrle took a pass from teammate Thomas Muller, which he knocked past Algerian goalie Rais M'Bolhi.
Germany got back at it 18 minutes later when Mesut Ozil drilled a shot into the net off of a rebound. Algeria's Abdelmoumene Djabou scored just a minute later, but it was too late as Germany advanced to the quarterfinals for the ninth straight time.

Germany will take on France Friday. The match is scheduled to start at 12:00 p.m. Eastern. You can watch that on ESPN2.
