What the Iberian press writes after Spain lost first place in the group to Japan

After the three matches played in the group, Japan was in first place with six points, while Spain and Germany were tied on points (4) in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. The goal difference helped the Spaniards and qualified in the round of 16.

Costa Rica remained top of the group with three points obtained in this competitive phase.

After this narrow qualification, the Spanish press wanted to thank the German national team and Kai Havertz, Chelsea’s 23-year-old midfielder, who scored a double in the match against the Costa Rican national team. It was Havertz who put Germany ahead. In the event of a victory, Costa Rica would have qualified for the round of 16, along with Japan.

“Thank you Germany! Danke Havertz! (no Thank you, Germany -in Spanish-! Thank you, Havertz -in German-)”, caption Brand.

“Spain qualifies in the round of 16 thanks to Germany”, noted those from Sports world.

“Spain stares into the abyss, but clings to the World Cup”, captioned the Spaniards from Sport.es.

“Danke, señor Havertz (no Thank you – in German – , sir – in Spanish – Havertz),” it says on As.com.
