Hard to see the two European favorites not advancing here.

wouldn't mind an upset from either the concacaf team or the Japanese team that smoked USA in the September friendly.

I have Spain winning the group--and the World Cup.

Pulling for Deutschland.

Ugh Kai Havertz… only thing I can think of is his massive unproduction at Chelsea while Pulisic sits the bench.

Clearly offside, but Germany got lucky there.

Pretty impressed by Japan early on. Wondering how long they can keep this pace and pressure up though.

If they keep that up for the whole game, I won't feel quite as bad about the US loss in the friendly.

Those picking the two Euro teams. Bold move.

Man, even if the first wasn't a foul, the takedown after definitely was. Bad moves by the keeper.

I just think a group like this, everyone know the two that are advancing. So it's funny to me people are stating it.

Yeah I think he would have gotten away with the first, but the 2nd arm tackle was awful
oh no

Japan whipped USA in a September friendly. They have some quality. After they conceded the pen, they'll have to press a lot more. Should be an entertaining second half.

I think he just tripped on that second "take down"

Japan got lucky there. They were caught completely flat footed and kinda fell asleep on defense.

Nice drop header by the Japanese defender to the German guy though. Pretty sure if the German had gotten to that ball first, he wouldn't have laid it off quite as nicely on a platter!

Good call. Looked that way in real time.

Fox is not doing a great job with replays.

That shouldn't have had to come from 4th official and var check. AR should have immediately had the flag up

Germany need a proper target man. Been lacking one since Klose retired.

I'm surprised that Japan keeps playing directly to a short forward versus trying to work the ball upfield. I don't think the guy upfront has won a single header

Almost 2-nil there.
