Just In: Spanish defeat at the hands of low-seeded Japan by 2-1 has served potentially in their favor of Luis Enrique’s side because it helped them evade the chance of playing hardcore Brazil in the Quarter Finals of the FIFA World Cup.

The Japan Head Coach Haime Moriyasu looked quite impressive with his team’s performance during Thursday’s clash, helping them to secure their slot in the knockouts and retain the top position in the group.

“The team’s will and determination to qualify for the knockout stages of the world cup meant their ”Intent Manifested as a Goal,” as they won by the smallest of margins thanks to the intervention of VAR. Japan’s boss also dedicated this historic victory to the people of his country.

However, Spain Coach Lusi Enrique sees no reason to feel happy, despite his team finishing in the second position in Group H and qualifying for the quarter-finals. Even though they lost to Japan, the loss helped them avoid the possibility of running into Brazil in the next round.

It is pertinent to mention that the Asian Nation Japan defeated tournament-highs Spain by 2-1 on Thursday. This victory was made possible by VAR Technology’s detection of a played-out kick, which allowed Japan to score the game-winning goal in the 53rd minute of play.
