First Latin America, now Europe; Football kings kneel before Asian powers; Germany lost to Japan

Asian powerhouses continue to advance in Qatar World Cup. Japan were the dark horses in the Group E match between Germany and Japan, knocking the multiple-time world champions to their knees.

Japan won by two goals to one.

It was Germany who started scoring through Gundogan in the 33rd minute of the match. Gundogan’s goal was through a penalty.

Germany took the lead in the first half but Japan fought back in the second half. After scoring the equalizer in the 75th minute of the match, Japan hit the next nail in Germany’s chest eight minutes later.

Ritsu Dowan started for Japan in the 75th minute. Exactly eight minutes later, Takuma Asano’s goal in the 83rd minute was going to sink Deutschland.

Despite creating many chances in the match, the former champions could not overcome goalkeeper Shuchi Gonda, who made a huge wall in front of the goal post.

Despite leading in every aspect of the game, only victory eluded Germany. Despite 26 shots, nine shots on target and 74 percent ball possession, it was not enough for Germany to win.

Last day, the Latin American kings, Argentina, also lost to the Asian team, Saudi Arabia. Argentina lost with the score of 2-1.

The only difference was Gundogan and Japan when Argentina took the lead with a penalty won by Messi and took back two from Saudi Arabia. The number of goals and the margin of defeat were all the same.

Despite having many opportunities to score, Messi could not advance in the face of the Saudi attack.

In the 10th minute, Messi scored a penalty in favor of Argentina for fouling Peredes in Saudi’s Al Bulayahi box.

Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia for the first time in history. Argentina’s next match is on November 27. Opponents are Mexico.
