FIFA World Cup Group E
Germany, Spain, Japan, and Costa Rica Will All Face Off in FIFA World Cup Group E.
Costa Rica, They Had a Very Interesting Campaign in CONCACAF Qualifying.
They Started Quite Poorly With Just One Win in Their Opening Seven Match, Three Losses in There as Well but the Latter Half of the Campaign Was an Incredible Comeback.
Panama Was the Side That Looked Like They Would Trouble the Top Three in Qualifying Those Being Canada Mexico and the United States.
But, in Costa Rica’s Final Six Matches of Qualifying, They Won Five Including Victories Over Canada and the USA at Home, and Drew Once Away to Mexico.
It truly an Incredible Achievement as They Finished Level on Points With the United States and Just Three Behind Canada and Mexico People Including Myself Haven’t Spoken About This Comeback From Los Ticos Enough but in CONCACAF Fourth Gets You Into the Inter-confederation Playoff.
Costa Rica Beat New Zealand One Nil With a Goal in Just the Third Minute of the Match Coming From Joel Campbell Arsenal Legend and So This is Costa Rica’s Sixth World Cup and It Feels Like the Ending of a Cycle for Some of the Players in This Aging Squad.
There Are a Few Too Many Players Over the Age of 30. Then a lot of Ticos Would Be Comfortable With a Few Young Paramours Sprinkled in There Here and There Some of the Faces From That Epic Quarterfinals Exit in a Shootout Against the Netherlands Are Still Around.
Most Notable of Such Being Killer Navas Expect Them to Play Defensive Counter-attacking Football and Try to Snatch Some Goals From Set Pieces.
Fun Fact: It Has Been 24 Matches Since Either Costa Rica or Their Opponent Has Scored Three Goals in a Match.
Germany Who Have Won the World Cup Four Times, One Fewer Than the Holders of Brazil. Their Last Outing Was One to Forget, as You’ll Remember, as They Crashed Out on the Group Stage and Was Incapable of Making It Out of a Group That Had South Korea, Sweden, and Mexico.
Joachim Löw Was Still in Full Swing and in Desperate Need of Ending but of course, That Didn’t Happen Until After Euro 2020 as Love Would Have Had Some Credit in the Bank.
So speaking, Following That 2014 World Cup Win Germany’s Qualification Group Was Incredibly Easy for a Team of Their Stature and They Rightly Coasted Through It Winning Nine and Lost Just Once to North Macedonia Scoring 36 Goals and Conceding Just Four.
Armenia Romania Iceland and Liechtenstein, of Course, Didn’t Provide Many Challenges for Them Even if They Aren’t at Their Best Speaking, Which They Certainly Weren’t at Their Best During the UEFA Nations League or Just in General in 2022.
Whereas of the Time of Writing This Article, They Have Played Eight Games, Where They Won Two, Drawn Five and Lost to Hungary. Hungary Was on It During the Nations League Campaign.
Germany Finished in Third in Their Group Behind Italy and Hungary but Ahead of England but the Thing is When a Core of Players Are Doing Well With Their Club Then That Often Translates to the National Team as We Saw With Germany at the 2014 World Cup and Spain at the 2010 World Cup.
As Players Were Excelling at Bayern and Barca Respectively Bayern’s Form Isn’t as Dominant as Perhaps It Once Was or It Was Back Then.
But the German Players Like Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich, Manuel Neuer, Jamal Musiala and Thomas Muller Have Been Playing Well Lately and in the Other Talent From Across the Bundesliga and the Continent
Plus Hansi Flick’s Importance to Germany’s Success in the Past They’ll Certainly Be a Tough Side One of the Favorites One Thing’s for Sure.
Fun Fact for Germany: They Aren’t Hurting in the Attack as They’ve Scored 58 Goals Which is an average of 2.9 Goals Per Match in Their Past 20 Matches.
Japan However Will Be Hoping They Can Be the Surprise of This World Cup of Course I’m Sure You Will All Remember How Valiantly They Fought at the 2018 Edition Pushing Belgium All the Way Before a Stunning Counter-attack on Belgium Left Them Exposed at the Back and That Was It a 3-2 Loss.
Under Hajime Moriyasu and His Go-to 4-2-3-1 Formation, Japan Has Found Plenty of Success to Go Along With the Constant Stream of Talent That the Country Produces.
Hajime Moriyasu Has a 69 Winning Record and Has Coached the Samurai Blue to a 2019 Asian Couple Runners-up Spot.
They Excelled in Qualifying Finishing One Point Behind Saudi Arabia Thanks to a Shock Loss to Oman in the Opening Match of the Third Qualifying Round.
As far as Talent, Goes They’re Pretty Stacked Takumi Minamino is Integral to the Side He Had 10 Goals and Four Assists in Qualifying and Has Recently Moved to as Monaco Where He Hasn’t Played a Starring Role Just Yet but He’s Been Able to Contribute.
Still, Daichi Kamada is Absolutely One of the Players to Watch as He is in Red Hot Form With Eintracht Frankfurt.
Takefusa Kubo Has Been Finding His Feet With New Club Rail Sociedad Up and Down Performances but His Talent is of No Question.
Junior Ito is Another Danger Man on That Right Flank Japan Looked Good Going Forward and There Are Plenty of Attackers to Look at but They Are Also Fantastic Defense.
Fun Fact Japan Comes Into This Competition With Five Consecutive Clean Sheets Where the Like of Takehiro Tomiyasu and Maya Yoshida That Back Line I’m Excited to Watch Japan
Finally, We Have Spain, a Team Who Are Always There or Thereabouts When It Comes to the Top Teams in the World the 2010 World Cup Was Fantastic 2014 and 2018 Completely Forgettable.
Now, Under Luis Enrique, They at Least Won’t Have Another Last-minute Dismissal as They Did in the Previous Tournament. At Least That Doesn’t Seem to Be the Case,i Guess We’ll See There’s Still Time.
But Spain is an Interesting Side. They Play Some Nice Stuff Under Luis Enrique but They Lack in Any Sort of Bite in the Attack I Find They Play the Kind of Football That Someone Like David Villa Would Have Feasted on Chances.
But Instead They Have to Rely on the Likes of Alvaro Morata or Ferran Torres Who Unfortunately of Late Both Have Missed Golden Opportunities More Than They Have Converted Them Who Knows Perhaps Someone Like Pablo Sarabia of Paris Saint-Germain Will Be Given a Look in but as for the Rest of the Pitch Spain Are Fantastic.
Most Notable in the Midfield as Spain Often Are I Mean They Have a Tradition of Producing Excellent Midfielders Patriot and Gabby Could Play Alongside Sergio Busquets or Rodri a Wealth of Options
There While the Wings Will Look Good With Ferran Torres or Nico Williams Question Marks Over Ansu Fati as He Was Recently Dropped During the Previous International Window.
We’ll See What Happens There Should Find Out Today the Defense is Where I Feel as Though Spain is a Little on the Weaker Side Compared to the Rest of the Squad.
Given Their Style of Play in Which They Dom Dominate the Ball They Typically Have to Defend Very Little.
In Goal, Unai Simon and Robert Sanchez Have Both Been Impressive They Recently Snatched First Place From Portugal and the UEFA Nations League With a Final Minute Goal From Alvaro Morata Nice Link Up With Nico Williams.
There Maybe They Can Do That at the Tournament and Their Qualification Campaign Was Fairly Solid Finishing Four Points Ahead of Sweden and Losing Only Two Sweden Despite Not Scoring for Fun Fact: Spain Has Still Scored in 20 Consecutive Matches.
