It is worth noting that the goalkeepers of Saudi Arabia and Japan have demonstrated superb defensive strength, defending the goal in front of a strong opponent, showing their determination to win, which can be said to be hard work.
According to World Cup goalkeeper save data, the 31-year-old Saudi Arabian goalkeeper Burmohamed Alovais ranked second in the key saves of Argentina’s 5 shots, while the 33-year-old Japanese goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda ranked the highest. The audience saved 8 shots from Germany!
Especially the 4 consecutive saves in the 70th minute of the second half shocked everyone. At that time, he hurriedly got up from the ground and jumped to catch the ball again. !
Although Germany has a strong ability to control the ball, it has nothing to do with the defense of goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda, and has failed to score for a long time. After that, Japan had the opportunity to score 2 goals and successfully overtake.
Gonda Shuichi not only made 8 saves, but also made 3 clearances, 14 long passes and 2 thug clearances, laying the most important foundation for the Japanese team to reverse the victory. As for Germany, which has lost in the first round of the World Cup for two consecutive times, the German coach Hans-Dieter Flick also has no countermeasures against Japan’s Jedi counterattack. He can only sigh that Germany needs to improve too much, and the current state will lose. It is no accident.
Previously, the Japanese team was called the “group of death” in the World Cup E group stage, because they faced the stronger Germany, Costa Rica and the favorite Spain, and it was considered difficult to break through the encirclement to qualify in the group stage. But now the Japanese team can rely on their strength to defeat Germany in the first game, and I believe it is also expected to win the big powers and advance to the top 16.
