Qatar 2022: Japan have beaten Germany 2-1 in another World Cup shock

Japan has beaten Germany 2-1 in their Group E opener in another shock at the World Cup in Qatar.

Ilkay Gundogan had put Germany in the lead with a penalty in the 33rd minute at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha.

Hansi Flick’s side put the ball in the back of the net again during an added time at the end of the first half – but it was disallowed for being offside.

Japan’s Ritsu Doan, who plays his football for Freiburg in Germany, equalised in the 75th minute before a simple long ball over the top was put away by Takuma Asano in the 83rd minute to put Japan into the lead.

Before kick-off, Germany’s players staged a protest, covering their mouths after they were stopped from wearing the anti-discrimination, rainbow-colored OneLove armband following threats of sporting sanctions
