Had Japan not won the match against Spain, Germany would have qualified thanks to the better goal difference. That didn't happen, as Tanaka scored a goal destined to spark controversy. Exactly like that. Because before the striker sends the ball into the net, the ball seems to have crossed the finish line.

In fact, the referee disallowed the field goal. Then VAR called and awarded the winning goal of the Asians, which eliminated Germany.

But was it a regular goal? Footage shows the ball going over the end line, before returning to Tanaka, who scored the goal that knocked Germany out of the World Cup. With the naked eye, it looks like a ball that has gone out, just like the assistant saw during the game. But VAR intervention overturned the decision, leaving German fans in doubt.
