in the World Cup in Qatar as they came from behind to beat four-time world champions Germany 2-1 on Wednesday (Nov 23).Telegram - Advertisement - Desert conditions are predictably hot if you’re not used to it, but Qatar-inducted cooling technology kicks off as one of Qatar 2022’s major success stories.0 Engagements DOHA – A day after Saudi Arabia beat two-time world champions Argentina 2-1 at Qatar 2022, fellow Asians Japan upset four-time former World Cup winners Germany by the same score in their Group E opener at the Khalifa International Stadium on Wednesday.The shock result was a repeat of their 2018 World Cup nightmare when, as defending champions, they lost their opener to Mexico and, after another defeat by South Korea, were condemned to an unheard of group-stage exit.

It was Japan's first win over Germany.A first-half penalty from Ilkay Gundogan put the Germans ahead, before Japan substitute Ritsu Doan scored and striker Takuma Asano's late strike gave the Samurai Blue the victory.The outside temperatures are estimated to be 18-24°C.Here are some moments from the pulsating encounter.Both attackers ply their trade in Germany for Freiburg and Bochum respectively.Players from Germany pose for the team photo, covering their mouths, after FIFA had threatened seven European teams with sanctions if they wore the OneLove armband.“I know energy-efficient cooling systems have been developed and the technology is now fitted in seven of eight Qatar 2022 stadiums, with the only exception of Stadium 974, which is fully demountable and features natural ventilation,” he said.(Photo: AP/Ebrahim Noroozi) Japan team players pose prior to the start of the World Cup group E match.Kai Havertz turned in what he thought was a second in first-half stoppage time and although the assistant referee was about the only person in the Khalifa International stadium not to notice he was a metre offside, VAR duly disallowed it.
