According to Ian Wright, German striker Kai Havertz will get the start for Germany in their World Cup encounter against Japan on Wednesday. Havertz is a striker for Chelsea.
Havertz was the starting quarterback for the game, which took place at the Khalifa International Stadium in Qatar. Just prior to the break, it appeared as though he had given his team a 2-0 lead by tapping in Serge Gnabry’s cross and scoring the goal.
However, there was an immediate suspicion of offside, and after an unexpectedly long VAR assessment, the goal was ruled out because the 23-year-old was obviously offside. Despite this, there was an immediate suspicion of offside.
After Ilkay Gundogan’s penalty kick gave Germany the lead in the first half of the game, many people anticipated that they would breeze through the remainder of the match without much difficulty.
Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano scored two goals in the game’s last minutes to give Japan a victory over Germany for the very first time in the history of the country. Germany was the team that Japan had previously defeated the most. Prior to this, Germany had a total of four victories in the World Cup under their belt.
While Wright was reviewing the goal that was disallowed for ITV, he grew highly agitated with Havertz’s location, and as a result, he yelled at Havertz. The goal in question was scored by ITV. During the time that Wright was reviewing the goal that had been disallowed for ITV, Havertz heard Wright yell at him and tell him to “Havertz, just remain where you are!”
It would seem as though the ball is going to move via that location. You are under no obligation to depart at this time. Keep your position, and if he waits for a long enough period of time, you will be able to get whatever it is that you desire by sneaking in behind him. The only thing you need to do is keep a low profile.
An explanation was provided for you, which stated that “the point is that you could see how much closer he was getting to the goal.” It is difficult for me to wrap my head around the fact that something similar is taking place at such a high level.
Since Havertz moved from Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea for a reported fee of 72 million British pounds, he has been the focus of intense scrutiny ever since the transfer took place. Even though he scored the goal that won the Champions League championship in 2021, he has not been able to live up to the expectations that have been placed on him. He has not lived up to those standards, which he set for himself.
After having a “traumatic” experience in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup with a loss to Korea, the team Virtue entered the game quite cautiously when playing against another Asian representative, Japan, in the opening match in Qatar this time around.
Daizen Maeda came close to scoring for Japan after “Blue Samurai” launched a very fast counterattack in the eighth minute while Germany was doing a lot of exploring and allowing Japan to encroach on the field in the first few minutes of the game. Germany almost gave up a goal after this.
After this heart-pounding situation, the German team played much better by reviving the squad. In the 16th minute, Anton Rudiger almost scored with a header from the left wing corner. Man City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is a shining factor in the midfield of Germany and is the author of two long shots that goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda struggled to save.
In the 31st minute, Joshua Kimmich hung the ball deep behind the Japanese defense for David Raum to quietly climb up. Unable to keep up with the speed and ability of the player wearing the RB Leipzig shirt, goalkeeper Gonda was forced to foul Raum and Japan was awarded a penalty. It was Gundogan who took the perfect free kick from the penalty spot, opening the scoring for “Die Mannschaft”.
Kai Havertz was the one who put the ball into the back of the net for Japan in the final minute of the first half, but he was the one who was called for offside when teammate Serge Gnabry passed the ball to him at his feet.
After the halftime break, the coach Moriyasu made three substitutions, one of which involved the well-known fullback Takehiro Tomiyasu, who is now playing in a Tottenham jersey.
However, despite the fact that the circumstances have not altered, the Japanese goal is in a state of constant wobbling due to the continuous application of braking, and the only thing that can keep the Japanese goal from falling is the expertise of goalkeeper Gonda.
Ritsu Doan, who came on as a substitute for Takuma Asano in the 75th minute, calmly cushioned the ball into the German goal, bringing the score to 1-1 for Japan. The goalkeeper Manuel Neuer had caught the ball after a very tight shot by Takuma Asano.
Not yet st.un.n.ed with Japan’s equalizer, the German team continued to receive more cold water. From a free-kick in Ko Itakura’s home half, Takuma Asano escaped past Nico Schlotterbeck and hit a cross, beating goalkeeper Neuer to give Japan a 2-1 lead.
After Saudi Arabia’s sh/o/c/king victory over Argentina in Group C on the evening of November 22, it was the turn of another Asian representative, Japan, to create an earthquake in Qatar when knocking down the German “tank” in the opening match of Group E. Surprise is coming to the World Cup 2022 in an unexpected way.
