Arsenal Reject Downs Germany
Japan pulled off quite the shock upset with a much-deserved win against a Lackluster German side that couldn't seem to put their chances in the back of the net and don't look like they have a proven out-and-out striker.
One note from the game is the tale of two former Arsenal players, Gnabry lined up for Germany a fan favourite, who left Arsenal after not getting many chances and then ending up at Bayern where he became a world-class player and one to watch.
He did not manage to score but another former Gunner did.

Substitutes Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano scored late goals Wednesday as Japan came from behind to upset Germany 2-1. And Asano who grabbed the winner used to be on the books of Arsenal but never got to play a single game for them.
If I am not mistaken, he was brought in by Wenger, and like the previous Japanese forward we had in Ryo Miyaichi game time never materialized and he moved on. Both Asano and Miyaichi ended up in Germany after their failed stints in London, but Asano was able to make a career and stay in the Japan squad.
And today his unforgettable goal for his country earned Japan a historical win at this world cup.
