Germany closed the first half with one goal ahead of Japan, which really suffered, especially after the penalty.

The game started shockingly as Japan scored the first goal of the match, which was immediately disallowed due to offside.

At the 20-minute mark, Germany went really close to scoring with a great shot from the distance. The Japanese goalkeeper, though, made a great save to keep the game tied.

Germany picked up the rhythm and made it difficult for Japan to exit their half of the field. At the 31-minute mark, the Japanese goalkeeper fouled David Raum in the box, resulting in a penalty. İlkay Gündoğan took it and scored the first goal for Germany.

Germany kept pushing hard to score the second goal, exploiting the good momentum after the penalty. They created interesting occasions, but the result remained unvaried.
