Iran rout Costa Rica

Iran rout Costa Rica

They first beat Guinea and went on the stun Germany in the second match before making the light work of Costa Rica.

A quick peek confirmed it was the German team, 3-1 victors on the night.

"I think we have a very fast team and a very strong team. The players had enormous pressure for the game, but the boys played cool and got the result".

"Yes it was very hard for us after the game against Iran".

The massive 4-0 loss against Iran in the last game had shattered the Germans' confidence. "Josha was playing his first game on the left side, it was his first match". We need to play to our potential against a side who are on high confident after two consecutive win. The assist came from the industrious Jastrzembski.

While Germany survived, Guinea continued to throw men forward. Soumah found the target with a neatly taken left-footed shot after a handful of scrambles from several Guinea players inside the Germany box.

The second half began with chances at both ends. "So it is our request that the yellow card is cancelled", he said. Wuck reacted by immediately pulling him off and putting on Jessic Ngankam. Their attacking approach backfired in the second minute of stoppage time when Germany broke away.

Keen to top the group, Asian powerhouse Iran employed five defenders and kept the rival attackers at bay, while finding the back of the net on three occasions.

Germany's main thought for the second half was keeping it tight at the back, and hitting Guinea on the break as often and as quickly as possible.

"We have a team who is very strong on the offence".

Guinea responded well after conceding the early goal.

Eventually, Germany got a goal from a penalty in injury time, and the entire squad's body language when they earned it spoke as much of relief as elation. The German coach hailed the pitch at Kochi and said the "pitch could be compared to European standards, and the players were able to play better here". There's less heat and humidity.

Camacho praised Iran for their attacking football and said, "They played counter attacking football and a very handsome game. "(This) stadium is bigger, and the pitch is a bit different. "The pitch here is a lot like what we get in Europe".

"Colombia is a very very good team".

"We should not get carried away with the victory against the Germans and instead focus on Costa Rica who always look risky in front of the goal with their skillful play", he added. "We were nervous in the first half and in that bargain we conceded two penalties, which costs us the match".
