Germany vs Japan 1 - 2 (World Cup 2022 Goals & Highlights)

2 days ago

In an electric opening game in Group E at the 2022 World Cup, Japan came back from a goal down to earn a first-ever - and well-deserved - victory over a complacent Germany.

Japan started the brighter of the two teams, full of energy, heart and eager to swarm around any German player on the ball. They even had the ball in the net early, with Ilkay Gundogan getting robbed of possession near halfway and Junya Ito crossing for Daizen Maeda to steer in.

The Celtic forward, however, had badly mistimed his run when he had no need to, leading to the goal to be disallowed. After the first 15 minutes, Japan's pressing started to wane and a nervous Germany team began to grow into the game and dictate proceedings - largely playing into and through the dazzling feet of 19-year-old Jamal Musiala.
