Germany beat Costa Rica 4-2 at the Al Bayt Stadium in Group E thanks to goals from Serge Gnabry, Kai Havertz, and Niklas Fullkrug. However, they failed to advance as Japan stunned Spain 2-1 to win the group. Spanish goal difference qualifies them over Germans. Moroccans won their earlier game 2-1, mercilessly capitalizing on their opponent’s mistakes to be eligible for the last 16 of the World Cup for the first time since 1986. Hakim Ziyech scored Morocco’s winner after Milan Borjan’s weak clearance fell on his foot during their final Group F match.
They needed a win or drew to advance to the knockout stages. The fourth minute of play was punctuated by a cantankerous crowd of Moroccan fans cheering on midfielder Ziyech. With Steven Vitoria’s weak back pass, Borjan has been put in an unenviable position, and the Moroccan forward Youssef En-Nesyri pounced on the opportunity. A long ball from Achraf Hakimi was run onto by En-Nesyri and hit the near post for Morocco’s second goal in the 23rd minute.
However, Germany’s result wasn’t enough. However, on the face of it, they did not raise any eyebrows at their World Cup. Some of their matches looked brilliant, but others were feeble and vulnerable. Ultimately, this tournament was disappointing. The Costa Ricans played well today and even led at one point. The quality was not good enough to get through here. The dramatic drama of the highest order. The best of sports theatre.

Germany vs. Costa Rica Head-to-Head Records at The World Cup 2022
On Thursday, Costa Rica and Germany play at the Al Bayt Stadium for a spot in the World Cup last 16. According to Hansi Flick’s team, they have earned one point from their first two games.

On Thursday, Los Ticos will enter the last 16 by winning against Germany, which will also condemn Germany to an early exit. For this purpose, Costa Rica must avoid a repeat of Die Mannschaft’s 4-2 win in the World Cup’s Group A opener in 2006, when the sides met for the first time.
Torsten Frings completed the rout by scoring a goal in the 87th minute, one of two goals Miroslav Klose scored in that match.
