Germany vs Costa Rica Starting XI

It’s still all up for grabs in Group E. Germany takes on Costa Rica in a must-win game tonight at 7:00 pm GMT, at Al Bayt Stadium. Here’s the confirmed Germany vs Costa Rica Starting XI.

Germany suffered a stunning 2-1 defeat to Japan in their opener. They are at the bottom of Group E with 1 point after their 1-1 draw with Spain.

Hansi Flick’s side cannot afford to lose any more points. A win against Costa Rica should qualify them for the Round of 16, given Spain beats Japan, or Germany stays ahead of Japan in GD.

After a 7-0 hammering against Spain, Costa Rica bounced back to win 1-0 against Japan. A win will guarantee Costa Rica a spot in the last 16.

A draw with Germany should still qualify Los Ticos, given Spain beats Japan.
