Japan accomplishes the feat and defeats Germany.

Qatar 2022 will be a world of surprises, and Germany, like Argentina, must take notice. Dominant Germans in the first match and forward with a penalty converted by Gundogan, then a lapse in concentration and Doan and Asano reverse the result, giving Japan a historic victory.

Blue Samurai in eleven behind the ball, with only a quick restart at 8' to frighten the Germans: Maeda puts in but is offside. Germany responds with a header from Rudiger from a corner action, but the first German shot on goal comes in the 20' with Kimmich, and Gonda flies to retort. Germany is gaining ground, but at a slow pace. It's a penalty, and Gundogan has broken the tie. Musiala breaks free on the strait and shoots high as Japan defends its goal. Havertz's goal was ruled out for offside 10 minutes after the first half ended. Nagatomo for Maeda on the next action, head turned and ball out.

A sensational chance wasted by Ito, stopped by a superb Neuer, then Sakai wasted on the open door in the 27th minute. Japan, on the other hand, arrived in the 30th minute, with Doan scoring after Neuer saved a shot by Minamino. The Blue Samurai settle for a 5-4-1 formation, Germany attacks, but Asano puts them under the crossbar on the counterattack, sending teammates and fans into a frenzy.
