Germany loses the first World Cup group game against Japan.

Now the end of this World Cup is already threatening on Sunday.

The ticker to read.

  • Germany 1-2 Japan (1-0)

WHISTLE: Germany loses!

After 99 minutes it's over here.

The DFB-Elf can actually take that, Japan is rewarded for its courage.

After a number of good chances, Germany simply cannot lose this game.

Ultimately, there were too many mistakes in the back that cost us the win here.

In particular, the second goal was terribly defended.

Ilkay Gündogan said in an interview immediately after the game: "I think there has never been an easier goal scored in a World Cup."

Japan turns the game here within eight minutes, Germany makes the World Cup false start.

Is it already threatening on Sunday?

Then comes a completely different caliber with Spain.

A second defeat and elimination in the group phase would be as good as fixed.

90th + 7:

Last minute.

And Germany gets another free kick.

Manuel Neuer comes up front.

90th + 5:

The Japanese fans are already celebrating.

And then they almost get punished!

Goretzka takes a rebound directly, just past the left.

There's still a little time left.

90 + 3:

Filling pitcher goes down in the Japanese penalty area.

But there is no further penalty for that.

Germany despairs of the Japanese.

The DFB-Elf now throws everything forward.

Youssoufa Moukoko comes on for Serge Gnabry.

87 minutes:

The German team is in shock.

The lead here was lost within eight minutes.

What's up now?

83 minutes: GOAL FOR JAPAN!


Germany 1-2 Japan.

Is it bad!

What is Nico Schlotterbeck doing there?

Takuma Asano runs away from him, Schlotterbeck misses the tackle, Neuer gets the ball into the near corner.

Japan leads!

82 minutes:

A corner for Germany … but it doesn't bring anything.

The minutes pass.

80 minutes:

Germany shakes and plays forward again.

Füllkrug and Götze came for Havertz and Musiala.

75 minutes: GOAL FOR JAPAN!


Germany 1-1 Japan.

And there it happened!

Doan stabs.

Neuer fends off a cross from Minamino in the middle, Doan dusts off.

Japan rewards itself.

75 minutes:

Minamino replaces Sakai.

Japan finally switches to attack mode.

Neuer with brilliant save against Asano

74 minutes:


What a save against Asano, the German captain is there.

Sakai shoots up the margin.

It has to be 1:1.

72 minutes:

Japan changes and becomes more offensive: Doan comes on for Tanaka.

71 minutes:


What an action.

First, Kimmich plays a dream ball on Gnabry, which puts it down for Hofmann.

Gonda parries his attempt and also has the margin.

The scene continues and Gnabry fails twice at Gonda.

The following corner brings nothing.


Germany must finally make it 2-0, otherwise this could end uncomfortable.

68 minutes:

Next chance for Japan.

Rüdiger has to block Asano's shot, there is a corner.

67 minutes:

Headball Itakura!

But Schlotterbeck blocks.

A few seconds later, Hofmann comes into play for Müller, and Gündogan is also finished.

Goretzka is now on the pitch.

65 minutes:

Antonio Rüdiger has a lot of fun here, wins a running duel with a grin on his face and a somewhat idiosyncratic running style.

Japan continues to move forward.

Leon Goretzka and Jonas Hofmann are getting ready for Germany.

Germany vs Japan now live: DFB-Elf plays with fire

62 minutes:

That's really dangerous!

Japan suddenly gets far too many rooms, Asano has the next opportunity.

The Germans are too imprecise at the front and not stable enough at the rear.

It's playing with fire at this stage.

60 minutes:


Gündogan misses the 2-0, his low shot from 16 meters goes to the aluminum.

Germany is too wasteful with the opportunities.

Gnabry has the next opportunity shortly afterwards.

57 minutes:

Japan changes: Asano for Maeda and Mitoma for Nagatomo.

The Blue Samurai become more offensive.

56 minutes:

Next good opportunity, but Havertz comes a step too late.

There is now more and more space for Germany because Japan obviously has to open something up.

Maybe Hansi Flick will soon react with a change and rely on speed - Karim Adeyemi would be a candidate.

Germany vs Japan now live: Musiala with magic show

51 minutes:


What a solo in the Japanese sixteen, the Bayern star dances them all out.

And then he chases the bullet into the Qatari night sky.

Strong from Müller!

He drives the ball forward and puts it out for Gnabry.

His shot kisses the crossbar.

First good chance for Germany in the second section.

46 minutes:

Let's continue!

There was a change in Japan: Tomiyasu is now in the game for Kubo.


And there's the break whistle.

Germany deservedly lead 1-0 against Japan here, Ilkay Gündogan's penalty goal currently makes the difference.

The DFB-Elf determines the game, a lot goes through David Raum.

The Leipziger had also gotten the penalty kick.

Otherwise, the Germans try again and again with degrees from the second row.

A tried and tested means, because Japan's goalkeeper Gonda is anything but safe.

However, the people in front of him switch quickly - and have come dangerously in front of Manuel Neuer's goal on one or two counterattacks.

Germany vs Japan: Havertz just before the break with an offside goal

45th + 4th minute:

Goal for Germany!

But that must have been offside, right?

After a Kimmich shot, Gnabry put the rebound in the middle.

Havertz then put the ball into the net.

The goal is checked - and the offside decision is made!

Too bad, it would have been the perfect time for the 2-0.

In return, Japan comes to a close!

Maeda's header just misses.

45 minutes:


Good chance for the German jewel, once again he uses his notorious "snake legs".

But he's aiming too high.

There are four minutes on top of that - for this World Cup even comparatively little.

Pierluigi Collina recently explained what XXL stoppage time is all about.

42 minutes:

Germany is doing really well here, repeatedly going down the left flank and the strong David Raum.

Kimmich takes the next shot over the Japanese goal.

40 minutes:

Germany eases off the accelerator a bit, Japan can free themselves from the pressure of the past 20 minutes.

Gundogan will execute.

22 minutes:

Brother Leichtfuss is back: Schlotterbeck lost the ball badly, it becomes dangerous immediately.

Rüdiger clears the corner.

It brings nothing.

20 minutes:

Again the Germans!

Strong combination on the left, ultimately Kimmich comes to an end from 18 meters.

Gündogan's margin goes over it, but he would have been offside.

17 minutes:


First good chance for the DFB, his header from a corner just missed the Japanese box.

12 minutes:

Germany recovers well from the offside goal and plays boldly forward.

Jamal Musiala is always wanted.

Goal for Japan!

But offside.

Maeda was clearly in the forbidden zone.

After Ilkay Gündogan lost the ball in midfield, it quickly went towards the German goal.



You saw the quality the Japanese have in the switching game.

7th minute:

The teams feel each other out, Germany is stable at the back.

There were no compelling accents to the front.

"We're not completely sure yet.

But we heard from the team that it is currently assumed that Gündogan will play.

Goretzka was a bit battered lately.”

Leon Goretzka suffered a minor injury during the friendly in Oman.

Flick could justify the Bayern star's place in the bank and give City star Ilkay Gündogan confidence, as Falk continues.

Thus he would avoid a first internal Zoff.

One thing is clear: Leroy Sané will be out with slight knee problems.
