Squad Form Description
A rejuvenated Costa Rican team who found their mojo against Japan will seek to end the German's dream of equaling Brazil's world cup figure. Having suffered a humiliating seven-goal mauling at the hands of Spain, Luis Fernando Suarez's men took the game to Japan confidently in a bid to redeem the country's footballing image. Opportunities in the first half were few and far between and both sides settled for a draw with the best chance of the half coming when Ritsu Doan whirled in a cross from the six-yard box and found no Japanese touch to do the damage. Costa Rica then found the deadlock in the 81st minute of the game when Spence Fuller took advantage of a poor Japanese clearance to beat Shuichi Gonda and set up an interesting match to watch when they played Spain.
(4 - 1 - 4 -1) S. Gonda, M. Yamane, K. Itakura, M. Yoshida, Y. Nagatomo, W. Endo, R. Doan, D. Kamada, H. Morita, Y. Soma, A. Ueda.

Squad Form Description
Substitute Nicklas Fuellkrug replicated substitute Morata's cameo to snatch a late point in the hands of an organized Spanish side. Defeat would have spelled doom for Hansi Flick's men as their disappointing outing in the hands of Japan in their opening fixture piled the pressure on the German side. Real Madrid's Anthony Rudiger felt he had found the breakthrough in the 40th minute when he headed in Joshua Kimmich's free-kick only for his celebration to be cut short by VAR. The Germans got their first world cup point when Fullkrug got the equalizer after Morata's superb flick gave Spain a deserved lead. The German national team will go all out on Thursday to avoid a repeat of their 2018 world cup outing.
( 4 - 2 - 3 - 1 ) Manuel Neuer, N. Sule, A. Rudiger, N. Schlotterbeck, D. Raum, J. Kimmich, I. Gundogan, S. Gnabry, T. Muller, J Musiala, K. HarvertzBet on Costa Rica vs Germany with 1xBet
