A scenario of madness, and a cruel outcome for Germany.
But logical, in a way, since the Mannschaft held only one point before challenging Costa Rica on Thursday evening.
Serge Gnabry's opener in the 10th minute gave hope to his side but Costa Rica reversed the game in the second half through Tejeda (58th) and Vargas (70th).
A score that then allowed the Costa Ricans to qualify for the round of 16 but in the process, Kei Havertz equalized (2-2, 73rd).
Before giving the advantage to his team (85th).
Füllkrug scored a last goal in the 89th minute (4-2) but in the other match of this group E, the Spanish equalizer did not come and Germany was eliminated from the World Cup in the group stage.
Like in 2018.
