Kai Havertz rose from the bench to inspire Germany to a 4-2 comeback victory over Costa Rica, but it proved insufficient to avoid group-stage elimination for the second FIFA World Cup™ running.
Serge Gnabry headed Germany ahead early on, but goals from Yeltsin Tejeda and Juan Pablo Vargas sent Costa Rica into a 2-1 lead. Havertz then scored twice before Niclas Fullkrug sealed a 4-2 victory. Japan’s reverse of Spain nonetheless saw Germany suffer elimination.
