Japan has recorded one of the biggest shocks in football history after beating Germany in the opening match of Group E. The late goal from Takuma Asano was enough to complete a comeback against the Germans.
Japan win against Germany
Germany’s quest to win the FIFA World Cup has gotten a shocking start as they have lost their first match of the tournament against the Japanese. It reminded me of Messi’s Argentina unexpected loss against Saudi Arabia yesterday.
Despite Germany taking a lead from Gundogan’s early penalty kick in the 33rd minute, Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano’s goal in the late minute gave them a historical win.
Japan’s first victory against the German
With the victory, Japan recorded its first-ever victory against German in its history. Till now, the two teams have met 5 times among which 2 draws, 2 losses, and 1 victory.
The first time the two teams met was in October of 1963 when they both scored 1 goal each. Germany had its first win in 1968 after winning by 1-0.
