Germany Is In Shock! Doan & Asano Mark Japan's Incredible Comeback

Japan scored two goals within eight minutes to stun Germany in their Group E World Cup clash.
  • Japan scored twice in eight minutes to come back
  • Both goals were substituted by players
  • Germany lost its opening two World Cup matches in a row
Japan's first goal came after Takumi Minanmino, formerly of Liverpool, passed the ball through the box, which Manuel Neuer could only save, to Ritsu Doan's cross. He had only been on the pitch for four minutes and hit his own net to level the score.
Japan's second goal came from a passing pass that another substitute Takum Asano crossed before plunging the ball into the German net. The Japanese bench went wild and ran down the touchline to celebrate.
Germany have lost their last two World Cup opening games, losing 0-1 to Mexico in 2018. Now they face another uphill battle to get past the group alongside European giants Spain.
