Spain versus Germany still 0-0 at the interval. Nationalelf had scored a goal through Antonio Ruediger, but it was disallowed as a result offside.
Spain vs Germany in the second match of Group E took place at Al Bayt Stadium, Al Khor on Monday (28/11/2022) early morning WIB. La Furia Roja were in control early on with their short passes.
Spain nearly opened the scoring in the 7th minute. Dani Olmo shot hard from the edge of the penalty area. Manuel Neuer reacted by making a move until the ball hit the crossbar again.
Germany responded with a quick attack in the 10th minute after being able to eliminate pressure from Spain. Leon Goretzka came in from midfield before finding Serge Gnabry.
Gnabry can reach the ball on the right side of the penalty area. However, Unai Simon could still keep cheating on him.
In the 24th minute, Simon’s passing mistake in preparation almost cost Spain dearly. The ball he sent actually led to Gnabry. Luckily Gnabry’s shot went wide.
Spain even more ball possession. Germany’s more intense pressing made Spain’s ball possession no longer fully effective.
Germany had shaken up Antonio Ruediger’s Spanish goals by welcoming a free kick from the right. However, this goal was canceled due to Ruediger offside.
The 0-0 lasted until the interval.
