A Swedish journalist pranked Germany mid-fielder Sami Khedira by giving him a homemade return ticket from the World Cup for the entire squad, reports BBC.
The 2014 winners started the tournament with a shock 1-0 defeat by Mexico, and a second loss against Sweden on Saturday could send them out in the group stage.The Juventus player, 31, smiled when he was handed the mocked-up ticket.
“I don’t think we will need that until 16 July,” he replied.
The final takes place in Moscow the day before.
In response he said: “I have no problem with that at all, I can live with it. I know for myself that I did not play well.
