Twitter Reacts To Japan’s Controversial Goal Against Spain In FIFA World Cup | football news

Japan defeated Spain in a Group E match of FIFA World Cup 2022 on Thursday to advance to the Round of 16. On the other hand, Spain also entered the last 16 despite the result, but they were Germany, who bore the brunt of Spain’s loss. . The Japan vs Spain match saw the decider coming from Ao Tanaka in the 51st minute but the goal sparked controversy for the way it was scored. Before Tanaka got his name on the scoresheet, the score was level at 1-1.

Tanaka scored only after getting an assist from Kaoru Mitoma. While the final strike was not in question, the way Mitoma received the ball near the touchline and then passed it to his teammate aroused controversy.

A VAR check was done on whether the ball went out of the playing area before Mitoma passed it to Tanaka, and the verdict went in favor of Japan.

The decision, which had such a big say in the fate of the game and also in Germany being knocked out of the tournament, sparked huge controversy with some coming in support of it and the others lashing out at it.

Check out some of the reactions here:

The goal turned out to be the one that resulted in Germany’s elimination from the tournament. Despite securing a 4–2 win against Costa Rica in a topsy-turvy match, Germany could not progress to the Round of 16. Japan, on the other hand, booked their spot in the knockouts as winners of Group E.
