Fans are treated to another "historic upset" moment at the World Cup.

Japan has stunned Germany on Wednesday, November 23, defeating the four-time winners 2-1 in an amazing Group E match, and now it is also considered another notable upset win in World Cup history.

This comes a day after Saudi Arabia's shock defeat of Argentina.

Japan vs Germany
Germany dominated the match most of the time but failed to take advantage of their situation, as Japan caused the Khalifa International Stadium to erupt into a mix of celebration and astonishment.

Germany, who finished last of their group in Russia in 2018, had missed many chances to widen their lead when the score was 1-0.

lkay Gundogan, from Manchester City, gave Germany the lead as he scored from the penalty spot in the 33rd minute. However, Japan made a brilliant comeback in the second half, all thanks to substitutes Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano, who both play for German clubs.

Ritsu Doan, who plays for German team Freiburg, equalized in the 75th minute with a rebound, giving Japan the chance to set up a famous winning goal against the strong Germany.

Takuma Asano, who plays for German team Bochumm, sprinted clear of Nico Schlotterbeck and beat Manuel Neuer from a narrow angle in the 83rd minute.

Germany outplayed Japan for most of the match with 24 attempts on goal compared to Japan's 11. Japan goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda made a series of saves and was named Player of the Match.

Historic Win for Japan
This was the first time that Japan has ever won a World Cup match.

Japan coach Hajime Moriyasu said after they won:
"I believe it's a historic moment, a historic victory, to say the least. If I'm thinking of the development of Japanese football, we have been building.
From the start we decided to be aggressive; however Germany's aggression was higher. This was no surprise for us. However our squad was very intelligent, they were smart and played well persistently. They fought really hard."

Germany coach Hansi Flick said:
"With this defeat and zero points, we are under pressure, no question about it. And we can only blame ourselves. We were on the right path in the first half, we had 78 per cent possession and were ahead 1-0. Then we had good chances in the second half that we didn't take advantage of.
Japan was simply more efficient today. We made mistakes that we should never commit especially in a World Cup and those are the things that we need to improve on."

A Match of Firsts
This was the first meeting between Japan and Germany.

This was the first time that Japan has ever won a World Cup match.
Japan has appeared in its seventh straight World Cup and is vying to reach the quarterfinals for the first time.

As for Germany, this year at the World Cup was their first time to play since their shocking group-stage exit as defending champion in Mexico (2018).
This matchup with Japan was only the third time they lost their tournament-opening game after they lost against Algeria (1982).
In other World Cup openers for Germany, the team had won 13 matches and drawn four.

Things are only getting started at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022!

On Sunday, Germany will face stiff opposition in Group E with 2010 champions Spain, while Japan shall be up against Costa Rica next.

Who's your favorite team to win this year's World Cup?

I'm quite surprised with so many surprises, but something is happening with the big teams and it's not like in the past. Japan failed, although i bet that they will win. Many results that ruin us
 antonis32128/11/2022 21:02:30 GMT
I remember when Germany crashed Brazil in the past , was it 7-1 ? Crashing defeat , in their own home . Germany had an awesome team back then . That march , many said that the final result was a complete surprise. The surprise to me was the great odds that Germany had for the win or for the over 3 or more goals . I was sure of Germany to win with many goals . I guess sometimes even bookmakers make mistakes lol

Brazil was not that strong when it lost with Germany 1 - 7...

Buddy, buddy, buddy...
Good luck to you too but that game have been already played like six days ago. You are not only late to bet on it but you even tipped the wrong outcome.
IT'S RIGHT THERE IN THE ARTICLE - HOW ABOUT READING IT FIRST BEFORE MAKING A COMMENT (this is for everyone else in this thread as well)!?

Who know what is in his had!
 geseco1229/11/2022 17:36:14 GMT
Germany still has chances in this last match, the groups are very close, I hope my South American teams can qualify, Ecuador made me very sad, I was eliminated, I had a great tournament, sometimes soccer is unfair.
 CALICUL29/11/2022 17:38:00 GMT
football is sometimes unfair, but not when the referees are guilty...

They will probably win today and they will pass,same as spain!
 geseco1201/12/2022 15:07:28 GMT
incredible that germany has a chance to reach the round of 16 in this world cup, for sure today they will go out with everything in search of the victory, may it be a nice game, and may the best one go through.
 dule-vu01/12/2022 15:07:37 GMT
That point from game with spain and todays win will be enough!

Unless Japan wins against Spain. Then a really massive win would be needed. At least 7:0.
 CALICUL01/12/2022 18:56:08 GMT
surprise results were and always will be. This is not too important because the big teams have bad days, but if you are a very inspired bettor and you win with the surprise matches, it is very good.
 geseco1202/12/2022 23:26:59 GMT
in this world cup I am seeing many surprises, besides top teams that are very confident and end up complicating themselves, that is why these round of 16 have to go out to kill from the first minute.
 CALICUL02/12/2022 23:28:18 GMT
from this stage there won't be many surprises. Big Smile
 ERNESTORO03/12/2022 03:58:18 GMT
With Germany and Uruguay out of the competition, it is most likely that the Netherlands and Argentina will follow, unless this World Cup continues to surprise us.
 dule-vu03/12/2022 09:24:33 GMT
Seems that we cant know any result and who can go home!
 tomex1103/12/2022 09:45:17 GMT
this is a surprise tournament, this is joke
 dule-vu03/12/2022 10:48:46 GMT
Now we will see when secod part start!
 eloy205/12/2022 02:05:31 GMT
there are many surprises in this world cup, there are also good games since Japan beat Germany in the result of the World Cup clash
 CALICUL05/12/2022 02:40:09 GMT
the surprises were in groups, but after that the surprises are gone. For moment, or for the rest of matches. Smile
