Spain were so impressive in their first game but that defence is a real question mark for me, Busquets and Jordi Alba aren’t the same level as the other top teams. Germany are Germany - not the first time they’ve started slow.
There is a well known tactic for winning some money at major tournaments in the group stages. Lay the top 5 or 6 in the competition to not qualify from the group. There is always 1 of 2 that it goes wrong for. Germany and Spain have traded at 1.01 in recent tournaments and failed to get out of their group.
Agree with all who are saying Japan were terrible. Think they suited playing on the counter against Germany, they just don’t have the creativity and skill to unlock a defensive team who don’t leave spaces.
