Germany vs Japan Preview

Germany still has a sour taste from 2018 when the team bowed out as defending champions during the group stage with a 1-2 record.

“We all know that was nothing from us at the last World Cup,” Germany midfielder Joshua Kimmich said via the Associated Press. “We’ve had to wait a long time. Tomorrow it will be really, really important to start with a good game.”

Japan will have other ideas amid the nation’s seventh-straight appearance. The Japanese seek a fourth appearance in the Round of 16 and look to get past that round for the first time.

For Japan to make it past Group E first, a win or a draw against Germany might be essential. The group has a tough lineup with two top 12 squads — No. 7 Spain and No. 11 Germany. Costa Rica ranks No. 31, only seven spots below Japan at No. 24.

“We want to get to the round of 16 and we would like to go further,” Japan head coach Hajime Moriyasu said via The Associated Press. “For us that would be changing history, that’s our target.”

Japan and Germany last met in an international friendly in 2006, a 2-2 draw. Germany won the only other meeting 3-0, also a friendly, in 2004.

German players certainly have familiarity with Japan’s players though. Japan has seven players who play professionally in German league Bundesliga, per the Associated Press.

“They’re playing against or with top players in the league and I’m confident they can exert what they’ve learned in the match,” Moriyasu said via The Associated Press.

Germany has a promising young player in Jamal Musiala, who has nine goals and six assists in Bundesliga. The Germans also have a seasoned World Cup veteran in Thomas Muller with 10 goals and assists. The Germans won’t have Leroy Sane due to a knee injury.

Takumi Minamino could make a solid debut for Japan. He plays professionally for Monaco in Ligue 1. Bundesliga players on the Japanese team include Ao Tanaka, Daichi Kamada, Wataru Endo, Maya Yoshida, Hiroki Ito, Ko Itakura, and Ritsu Doan.

“You have a team, players who are very well developed, technically as well as tactically. They’re really, really good. And we see that quality in the Bundesliga,” Germany head coach Hansi Flick said via The Associated Press.
