Japan came back fiery in the second-half and punished Germany to a stunning 1-2 defeat in yet another dramatic encounter at the World Cup this evening.
The Germans came first at the Khalifa International Stadium in the first-half through a penalty goal by İlkay Gündoğan at the 33rd minute after Japan goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda had fouled wing-back David Raum, but the Japanese remained resilient the remaining of the time.
The Asian team returned charged in the second-half, kept knocking on the German defense before the European team gave way for substitute Ritsu Doan at the 75th minute before Takuma Asano, another sub, put Japan ahead at the 83 minute.
Yesterday, Saudi Arabia pulled a similar surprise which saw Lionel Messi’s captained Argentina succumb to a 1-2 defeat.
