Japan's stunning win in their third and last group match against Spain by 1-2 threw Germany out of the FIFA World Cup 2022 despite the Germans' sound victory (4-2) over Costa Rica in their last match on Thursday.

Germany, the four-time world champions, crashed out of two consecutive World Cups (2018 and 2022) from the group stage.

The Japanese team scored 6 points and won Group E.

The Japanese advanced to the playoffs of the tournament.

The German and the Spanish teams both scored 4 points, but the Spaniards managed to get into the Last 16 due to better goal difference.

Team Costa Rica with 3 points finished last.

In the last-16 stage of the World Cup, the Japanese team will play against the Croats on Dec 5 and the Spanish team will face the Moroccans the next day.
