Japan overcome a first-half deficit to defeat Germany 2-1 thanks to goals from Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano in an eight-minute span. The Japanese sits second in the group following Spain’s lopsided victory over Costa Rica but will be confident with two matches to go.

Germany kicked things off with an opening penalty-kick goal in the 33rd minute. Ilkay Gundogan stepped up and slotted home from the spot after David Raum was fouled by goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda in the box.

The Germans came close to celebrating a second goal before halftime, but Kai Havertz’s finish was wiped away by VAR. Joshua Kimmich and Serge Gnabry were denied opportunities by Gonda.

Doan punished Manuel Neuer in the 75th minute after the veteran shot-stopper could only palm away Takumi Minamino’s original effort. Japan would steal all three points just eight minutes later as Asano finished off Ko Itakura’s pass into the top-right corner.

Gonda finished the match with eight saves as Japan claimed an historic win in Qatar.

Canada started extremely well in the first half and was given a golden opportunity to take a lead, but Courtois delivered a top save in the 10th minute. Alphonso Davies stepped up after Yannick Carrasco was whistled for a handball, but Courtois dove to his right to…
