Germany out of World Cup at group stage

Four-time champions Germany have crashed out of the football World Cup-2022 in Qatar in the group stage.

For the second tournament in a row, the Germans have crashed out during group stages - crushing fans hopes of glory and leaving exhausted players in tears on the pitch.

The elimination on Thursday came as Japan stunned Spain 2-1 in the other Group E match, a result that handed those two teams a spot in the Round of 16.

While they came from behind to beat Costa Rica 4-2, Japan secured first place in Group E with a 2-1 victory over Spain, leaving Hansi Flick's men in third place and Costa Rica at the bottom of the table.

“In the first half I was disappointed and very angry at my team and how we allowed the opponent to come back,” said Germany coach Hansi Flick.
“We wanted to score three or four goals in the first half but then we made mistakes. If we had converted those chances, 16 of them. But the tournament was not decided today for us. We did not have any efficiency at this tournament and that is why we were eliminated.”
