Germany have once again been knocked out of the FIFA World Cup at the group stages, despite beating Costa Rica 4-2 on Thursday evening.
The win proved to not be enough for Hansi Flick's side as Japan beat Spain 2-1 to book their place in the knockout rounds.
As expected, Germany took the game to Costa Rica early with Jamal Musiala forcing Keylor Navas into a smart save inside the opening two minutes.
The first real chance of the game would fall to Thomas Muller six minutes later. Found unmarked by a brilliant looping Joshua Kimmich cross, the Bayern forward was unable to get his resulting header on target when he really should have.
