Croatia then won the penalty shoot-out thanks to keeper Dominik Livakovic, who saved three penalties and thus shattered Japan's dream of playing in a World Cup quarter-finals for the first time.

The Japanese eliminated the DFB team in Group E.

After the gripping game between Japan and Croatia, ZDF commentator Claudia Neumann surprised with an exuberant statement.

The 58-year-old first thanked co-commentator Hanno Balitsch, who gave his opinion on Neumann's side for 120 minutes.

"Hanno, thank you very much for your expertise.

We're wrapping up here now," says Neumann, pointing out that the round of 16 between Japan and Croatia was the last game at the Al-Janoub Stadium in Al-Wakrah.

She then announced the second World Cup round of 16 on Monday.

"We are also looking forward to the evening game between Brazil and South Korea," said Neumann and then became exuberant: "With Béla Réthy, the best colleague in the world." Why she celebrated the commentator legend so much and why Réthy is so popular with her stands is not known.

But Neumann didn't want to stop with the superlatives.

"Then back to the studio first," said the commentator, who is not loved by all football fans: "Back to the best experts in the world, Jochen Breyer, Per Mertesacker and Chris Kramer." Some TV viewers should also listen to their ears did not dare, since such a choice of words is rather a rarity in the public sector.

Breyer recorded the verbal through ball in the studio in Mainz and thanked him kindly.

"We can only return the compliment," said the moderator: "Thanks to the best colleague after Doha".

Phew, quite a lot of harmony there in the second.

The expert duo Per Mertesacker and Chris Kramer are very popular on ZDF.

The Gladbach professional in particular is very well received by the TV audience with his casual manner and loose tongue and is celebrated by quite a few as the best TV expert at the 2022 World Cup.

The two world champion colleagues, Mertesacker and Kramer, work particularly well together.

However, both still find it difficult to praise the other person.
