This is a major feat for Japan, who have now qualified for the tournament’s quarter-finals. Japan finished top Group E with 6 points, while Germany finished third with 4 points.

Germany Knocked Out

Germany has a rich history in the World Cup. They have only been eliminated from two World Cups in their history, which is quite amazing considering they have won the competition four times and are among the top five teams in this tournament.

Germany’s first elimination came in 2018 when they lost to Mexico by 1-0. This was a shock to many as Germany had been expected to win that game. Germany’s second elimination came in 2022 when they lost 1-2 against Japan. This was also a shocker because not many people thought Germany would lose that game.

Messi and Asamoah Gyan Penalty Miss

Lionel Messi and Asamoah Gyan are the only players to miss penalties in two successive world cups.

Asamoah Gyan missed the infamous penalty against Uruguay after a Luis Suarez handball at the World Cup quarter-finals. He was then called upon to take a penalty against Portugal in the 4th place playoff, but he failed again.

Messi missed a penalty again in a crucial group match against Poland at Stadium 974 in FIFA World Cup 2022.

Messi has missed four penalties in his international career, taking his combined tally for club and country to 31.

Most World Cup Caps for a Goalkeeper

The German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who played at the 2022 World Cup, has the most caps for a goalkeeper in world cup history. He has 19 caps for his country Germany.

This is despite Germany crashing out at the group stages of the 2022 World Cup, with just four points and one win from their three games.

Many consider Germany one of the best teams in world football, but they have yet to get past the quarterfinal stage since they won it in 2014.

Canada Statistically Worst Club

Canada is statistically the worst joint club in World Cup history. Canada managed to make their first debut at the World Cup, but it could have gotten off to a better start. They lost all six games and finished at the bottom of Group F. The Canadians will have another shot at it in 2026.
