Posted by

Germany have been all but convincing during the World Cup so far and with just minutes to go, are relying on Spain to get through the group stage.

Die Mannschaft looked as if they would cruise to victory over Costa Rica after taking an early lead through Serge Gnabry.

However two Costa Rica goals in ten minutes turned the group on its head, with Germany and Spain at one stage going out. Kai Havertz levelled matters up shortly after though. The trio of goals occurred in just 15 minutes.

As the clocked ticked down on Germany’s World Cup hopes, the Chelsea forward put them in front.

In the dying embers, Spain hero Niclas Fulkrug doubled the lead, although it will not change the equation unless Germany can score four more.

Germany are set to meet a shock end to their World Cup hopes, after many had placed them amongst a chasing pack for the favourites to win the competition.
