Sumary of Japan gets 2 late goals to upset Germany, 2-1:

  • Substitutes Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano scored late goals Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) to help Japan come from behind and upset Germany, 2-1. Both Doan and Asano play for German clubs.
  • They played two friendlies in the past, with Germany winning 3-0 in 2004 before a 2-2 draw in 2006. Germany outplayed Japan for much of Wednesdays match and had 24 attempts on goal compared to Japans 11. The Japanese had only 24 percent possession.
  • Despite giving away the penalty for a clumsy contest on left back David Raum, Japan goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda made a string of saves and was player of the game.
  • But Doan, who plays for Freiburg, pounced on a rebound to equalize in the 76th minute after Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer blocked a shot from Takumi Minamino.
