Sweden manager Janne Andersson was unhappy on Saturday night with what he viewed as Germany gloating in victory following a late winner against his side.
A 95th minute Toni Kroos free kick - the latest goal Germany have ever scored at a World Cup - pulled the Germans back from the brink of elimination.
Following the final whistle, members of the German and Sweden benches clashed. Two German officials sarcastically clapping in front of their opponent's dugout sparked the sideline melee.
"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," Andersson said after the game.
"There were many people on our bench that were annoyed. We fought it out for 95 minutes and when the final whistle goes you shake hands and leave. So I was very angry."
