Luis Enriquespeaking at his press conference yesterday…

“Football is a show, as if you were going to the theater. The fans want to see goals, entertainment. This is how I interpret football. Other coaches don’t share this, it’s okay, but it’s what I like. We don’t focus on the result, we focus on our path. It is good vibes, optimism and joy. Maybe it’s an excess of optimism.

“If something goes wrong and I get fired, that’s fine. But if this form fills my players with optimism, I am satisfied. Until I’m proven wrong, we have to keep thinking that we are the better team and that we will play seven games and win. It may not be true, but that is our goal.

“Imagine that we think that the runner-up is better and we have reached the 90th minute with a good 0-0 tie, but then, with five seconds to go, Costa Rica and Japan both score. In the last 15 seconds, we’d be out! Or Germany could win 5-0. Just imagine!

“We are here to win seven games and win the group. It could be Brazil in the quarterfinals but that’s okay. Let’s play Brazil. At the elite level, we cannot speculate. Could avoiding Brazil be easier? Easier in soccer? What’s that? To win a World Cup you have to beat everyone who comes your way. That is your goal. It’s soon all or nothing. The winner goes home. That is the greatness of football”.

A draw that could show why a flourishing Spain will not be able to win this World Cup and prevent Germany from being left out. It is that fine a line, of an exciting 1-1 draw.

Hansi Flick’s side need a lot more than that in their next game against Costa Rica, and also a favor from Spain against Japan, but they should feel considerable relief here. They have survived. They have persevered. It’s remarkable to think that these teams came into this World Cup as equals, and that this game ended in a draw. Spain was a much better team, as shown by their positions in the group. But Luis Enrique’s team also has its flaws, as evidenced by the way in which they gave up this win.

Japan came to Qatar hoping to atone for their most infamous visit to this country, when a 2-2 stoppage-time draw in a 2-2 draw with Iraq on neutral ground during World Cup qualifiers in 1994 denied them their first place in history. a final There have been seven consecutive qualifiers since then, a remarkable rise to become an established footballing nation, but if they go without reaching the last 16 of this tournament, they will be left to mourn this loss as their new ‘Doha Tragedy’.

After their exceptional victory in the first round of group play, not to mention the 7-0 defeat of Costa Rica, this was an opportunity for Japan to secure a place in the round of 16 and increase the pressure on Germany before his encounter with Spain later. tonight. Instead, Keysher Fuller’s 81st-minute goal has turned Group E upside down and produced a plausible scenario in which all four teams reach the final round level on points.

Hajime Moriyasu may try to look on the bright side and philosophize that three points after two games is par for the course. But in the cold reality of a World Cup, as Moriyasu and his players bow in apology to their supporters at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, the only conclusion to be drawn from a gritty duel with a sensational finish is that your team has wasted the gold trophy. opportunity presented by defeating Germany.

Meanwhile, Costa Rica is still almost alive thanks to Fuller. The looping shot from the right-back barely missed goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda’s outstretched palm. The opportunity had only presented itself because Yeltsin Tejeda took advantage of a mistake by Hidemasa Morita. It was an ugly goal to win an uglier game, but just what Luis Fernando Suárez’s team deserved for a disciplined game plan.
