Germany vs Japan LIVE SCORE: Hansi Flick’s Germany aim to brush aside 2018 wounds, start favourites vs Asian giants Japan, Kick off at 6:30 PM IST – Follow FIFA WC LIVE Updates

Germany will be eager to start their campaign off on the best possible note when they take the field at the Khalifa International Stadium on Wednesday. Having suffered a humiliating group stage exit in Russia, the four-time champions hope that their blend of experience and youth can make a deep run in the tournament.

The DFB thrust the job to Hansi Flick after the team went on a wane post-2014. A new set of players were blended in while the Germans also dropped their official moniker ‘Die Mannschaft’. Flick enjoyed a successful spell at Bayern before taking the reins and will rely on his Bavarian stars like Thomas Muller to deliver the goods on Wednesday.

“We have to be prepared for a tough battle against Japan. We have to be focused from the very first minute. Then everything is possible with the team,” said team director Oliver Bierhoff this week.

Japan meanwhile will be prepared for the German challenge with as many as eight of their squad exported to the Bundesliga. Japan veteran Yuto Nagatomo said those eight, who include Europa League winner with Eintracht Frankfurt Daichi Kamada, were constantly feeding teammates information on their opponents.

“You don’t even have to ask – in the canteen or on the bus, you’re getting information from everywhere,” said Nagatomo.

Japan will no doubt be keen to exploit Germany’s weakness in defence and its vulnerability against quick counter-attacks. An upset in the first match against the Germans could go a long way in getting them past the group stage, just like they had done in 2018 when they narrowly lost to Belgium in the Round of 16.

Germany Team News

Germany are struggling with injuries with Marco Reus and Timo Werner ruled out. Leroy Sane will also miss the opener vs Japan. However, the good news is that striker Niclas Fullkrug returns from illness.  Thomas Muller and Antonio Rudiger also trained with the squad over the weekend.

Captain Manuel Neuer will be in goal, while Flick faces a dilemma up front – with Kai Havertz and Fullkrug fighting for a solitary spot. Jamal Musiala, Serge Gnabry are expected to start regardless of the shape Germany go with.
