Germany are through to the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup following a 2-1, extra time win over Algeria in Porto Alegre.

Andre Schuerrle finally broke the deadlock just moments after the first period of extra time began, and with just over a minute to go before the final whistle Mesut Ozil scored what proved to be the winner.

Seconds later Abdelmoumene Djabou pulled one back for Algeria, but it was too little, too late for the Fennec Foxes.

Following are ratings and analysis for both sets of players.

Mehdi Lacen: Has so far won all his aerial duels.
