FIFA WORLD CUP 2022; Japan stun Germany 2-1 win

Japan provided the second major shock of the FIFA World Cup 2022 with a stunning comeback 2-1 win over Germany at the Khalifa International Stadium here on Wednesday. The four-time world champions took a first-half lead through Ilkay Gundogan’s coolly dispatched penalty and looked likely to add to their advantage early in the second half.

A shock then turned into a sensation eight minutes later when Takuma Asano burst through on the right, amid some less-than-impressive German defending, to blast a ferocious and, ultimately, historic shot into the roof of Neuer’s net.
