World Cup 2022 LIVE: Team Germany and Japan news and Group E lineups

FIFA World Cup: Results and reactions after day three in Qatar

Germany and Japan will meet today in Group E of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

For Germany, this match is a chance to step up from a scorching world title defense four years ago when team after the triumph in Brazil in 2014, he was eliminated in the group stage in Russia. The latter tournament was Germany’s penultimate tournament under Joachim Low before he oversaw last summer’s round of 16 trip to England for the Euros. Now Hansi Flick is leading his nation to a major tournament for the first time in an effort to help restore their status as one of world football’s superpowers.

Japan, meanwhile, will play the role of underdogs but will be inspired by Saudi Arabia’s stunning 2-1 victory over Argentina on Tuesday, and can also take faith from the 2018 World Cup campaign where they reached the round of 16 and were almost shocked Belgium to go even further. However, this clash with Germany is not the only difficult test for Hajime Moriyasu’s players; Spain is also present in Group E, as is Costa Rica, which the Spaniards will face in the afternoon.

Follow all the action on our live blog below as the Morocco v Croatia match ends.


Morocco 0-0 Croatia

FULL TIME: Goalless game at Al Bayt Stadium.

Two teams that just eliminated each other. No clear chances to speak of, both sides are very solid in their shape.

Morocco will be happier while Croatia was a bit weak. No repeat of 2018 when they won all three World Cup matches.

For Belgium vs Canada in Group F later at 7pm…

France defender Lucas Hernandez ruled out the rest of the World Cup

Lucas Hernandez has become the last French player banned from the World Cup.

The Bayern Munich defender was sent off in the first half of Tuesday’s 4-1 win over Australia and subsequent tests showed a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

This means Hernandez will have to be sidelined for a long time and will no longer play any role in Qatar’s attempt to defend his world title.

The left-back was replaced by brother Theo against Australia.

Harry Kane will undergo an ankle scan amid injury fear ahead of England vs USA

England captain Harry Kane will undergo a scan of his right ankle to determine if he was injured during the World Cup opener against Iran.

Kane remained prone after a tough challenge in Monday’s Group B match, and the striker’s foot appeared to twist awkwardly.

The Tottenham striker has a history of ankle injury and was then brought off in the 75th minute of a 6-2 win.

England face the USA in their second group stage match on Friday night and Kane is now considered a doubt for Gareth Southgate’s side.
