Until the end of the first half Germany was still leading 1-0. Even when Germany entered the second half, they still controlled the game and it looked as if Germany would win this match. However, with a round ball, it turned out that Japan was able to counterattack and scored a goal in the 75′ minute by R. Doan.

The score was tied at 1-1, the German team was immediately surprised by the counter-attack that reciprocated the goal. Germany still controlled the game, but Japan was good at taking advantage of even a few counterattack opportunities.

Finally, in the 83′ minute T. Asano scored against Germany, making the score turn around for Japan to win 2-1 over Germany. This is a German concern about Asian teams that has come true. Germany must accept the bitter taste of losing to Japan and are at the bottom of Group E.
