Niclas Fullkrug Late To Save Germany At FIFA World Cup 2022 World Cup Draw With Spain!

  • Germany and Spain drew 1-1 in the FIFA World Cup Group E encounter at Al Bayt Stadium in Qatar’s Al Khor on Sunday night after substitute Niclas Fullkrug scored seven minutes from the end. After losing to Japan 2-1, the 29-year-close-range old’s shot gave Germany their first point of the tournament.
  • Spain took the lead in the 62nd minute when substitute Alvaro Morata evaded his man and flicked the ball in at the near post past goalkeeper Manuel Neuer after a low cross from Jordi Alba. Fullkrug’s effort equalized.
  • Germany’s stunning loss to Japan was softened by Costa Rica’s triumph over Japan, but they struggled to control the ball against Spain.
  • Four years after a dismal group-stage loss in Russia, Morata’s strike at Al Bayt Stadium had the four-time world champions on the ropes, but Werder Bremen attacker Fuellkrug finished beautifully to split the points.
  • Spain needs a point against Japan to qualify for the knockouts after the one-all draw. Wins secure the top spot. Germany is now last, but if they beat Costa Rica and Japan loses to Spain, they will advance to the next round. Germany has more difficulty if Spain and Japan draw. Goal difference or Germany-Japan goals would decide if Japan draws.
  • Germany coach Hansi Flick denied that his team was distracted by their pre-game protest against FIFA “silencing teams” in their stunning opening loss to Japan, and the taut early exchanges swiftly focused attention on the football.
  • After their startling opening-day loss, Flick replaced Kai Havertz with Thomas Mueller up front, aiming for a speedy response. In the seventh minute, Manuel Neuer saved Dani Olmo’s long-range shot.
