Germany: Germany are in last place in Group E ahead of the final matchday.
They've taken just one point from their opening two games, losing to Japan before drawing with Spain. They're two points behind both Japan and Costa Rica and three off of Spain. Germany quite simply have to beat Costa Rica if they're to progress to the Round of 16. That will be enough of itself should Spain beat Japan, but if that game ends in a draw, Germany will need to ensure that they overhaul the goal difference (one goal). If Japan beat Spain, it practically eliminates Germany -- they're seven goals behind Spain as things stand. PredictionAfter a disappointing start of the tournament there is no alternative than winning this time for Germany.
