FIFA World Cup 2022 Germany vs Japan Prediction, Time, Live Streaming Details

Germany, a four-time world champion, play Japan on November 23 to kick off their campaign for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. As they are ready to start their 2022 season against Japan, Germany will have no intention of looking back on their performance in Russia 2018.

Only one of Japan’s last eight World Cup games has ended in victory, but that triumph over Colombia in the tournament opener in Russia was enough to see them through to the last 16 last time out.


For Hansi Flick it is the first major competition as national coach and he wants to leave a lasting impression with his team. The side didn’t exactly dazzle in 2022, with Flick’s squad claiming just two wins in nine games.

Despite appearing in seven consecutive finals and having plenty of experience on the international stage, Hajime Moriyasu’s side have never progressed past the first round of consecutive World Cups, a historic trend Japan would like to ignore this time. The Samurai Blue have reached the Round of 16 seven times out of their 22 appearances at the FIFA World Cup.



Germany have a dismal record of just two wins in their last eight games, which hasn’t hurt the Germans’ confidence. Germany can draw Brazil level with five for most World Cup wins if they win the tournament in Qatar since four-time world champions Italy are absent. However, if recent results are any indication, beating a group that includes Spain, Japan and Costa Rica will not be easy.


In their six appearances at the World Cup since 1998, Japan have consistently lost in the group stages before progressing to the round of 16. But qualifying with 15 wins from 18 and a record 58 goals is undoubtedly encouraging for Japan.

head to head

The four-time world champions have never faced Japan in a competitive game, but it should come as no surprise that they have won their previous two encounters, with Germany triumphing 3-0 in a friendly in 2004 and drawing 2-2 in another exhibition match two years later .

key figures

Since his World Cup debut in 2010, Thomas Müller has been the star player for Germany in recent tournaments, scoring 10 goals and providing six assists in 16 appearances. But Muller may not be a starting block while the focus is on Youssoufa Moukoko, the youngest competitor at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and possibly the most promising young German talent since Jamal Musiala’s rise to fame at Bayern.

Although Takumi Minamino was nominated for Japan’s preliminary round team in Brazil in 2014, he is about to make his World Cup debut. Minamino was the key player for Japan in qualifying with 10 goals and four assists. He will try to continue that form throughout the final.

Date, time & place

The Germany vs. Japan game will be played on November 23 at 18:30 (Indian time) at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha.

Live streaming details

The Germany v Japan game will be broadcast live on Sports18 and Sports18 HD TV channels in India and the Jio Cinema app and website both offer free live streaming of the event.


Germany will be serious for the first game as they wouldn’t risk clashing with Spain to advance to the next round. Despite a good performance from Japan, expect a 3-0 win in favor of the German team.
