Today marks four years after Germany was eliminated from the group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Now, as they prepare to face Japan in the opening match in Group E, they hope to consign their traumatic Memories to history.

Meanwhile, their Asian opponents performed marginally better in that World Cup as they defeated Belgium to go to the Round of 16 before being eliminated. Nevertheless, it is going to be tough competition in Qatar.

With only two wins from the last eight games, the previous performances of Die Mannschaft never served to increase their confidence, as they ended up in third place in Nations League Group with Italy, England, and Hungary.

Choosing the route to 2-0 against Belgium before eliminating from FIFA 2018, Japan is the only Asian team to have advanced past the round of 16 in the last six tournaments, while their omen spitted after losing to Canada in the friendly warm-up game by 2-1.

Although Germany and Japan have never faced off in a FIFA competition, the four-time champions trounced Japan 3-0 in a friendly match in 2004 and then drew 2-2 in another exhibition match two years later.
