Qatar 2022: Germany Secure Precious Point

Germany’s hope of staying in Qatar beyond the group stages of the World Cup was kept alive after they came from behind to secure a precious draw with Spain.
Costa Rica’s victory over Japan was a good result for the Germans, who must avoid defeat by Spain to make their last group match relevant.
However, after a goalless first half, Spain opened scoring in the 62 minutes when substitute Alvaro Morata applied a brilliant near-post flick to Jordi Alba’s cross.
Germany pressed forward and Niclas Fullkrug gave them a point seven minutes from the end when he burst through and lashed an unstoppable finish high past Spain keeper Unai Simon.
On Thursday, Germany will take on Costa Rica while Spain will take on Japan. Victory for both Europeans will see them through to the knockout stage.
