Japan Shocks Germany In World Cup 2022 Group E Match Win
Japan pulled off a 2-1 victory over Germany in their final World Cup warm-up match before the start of the tournament. Germany took an early lead after Ilkay Gundogan converted a penalty in the 33rd minute, but Ritsu Doan equalized for Japan in the 75th minute. Takuma Asano then scored eight minutes later to give Japan the win. 

 This victory gives Japan some momentum heading into the World Cup, as they look to get out of the group stage for the second consecutive tournament. Japan is in a tough group, facing off against Colombia, Poland, and Senegal, but this win over Germany shows that they are capable of competing with some of the best teams in the world.
