JAPAN 2, GERMANY 1: In the World Cup's second major stunner in as many days, the Samurai Blue scored twice in the game's final 15 minutes to upset Die Mannschaft and throw Group E into a tizzy.
Ilkay Gunogan had given Germany a 1-0 lead from the penalty spot after 33 minutes, then appeared to have a second goal from Kai Havertz in first half stoppage time, but the goal was disallowed on an off-side call. Japan equalized from Ritsu Doan in the 75th minute, then Takuma Asano got the winner in the 83rd minute to allow Japan to take the three points in most stunning fashion.

Dani Olmo started things off well for Spain with an 11th minute strike, then Marco Asensio made it 2-0 in the 21st minute, and Ferran Torres converted a penalty in the 31st minute to make it 3-0 at the break.

BELGIUM 1, CANADA 0: The Maple Leafs, making their first appearance in the World Cup since 1986 and only their second time ever, had hard luck, as Alphonso Davies was denied from the penalty spot by keeper Thibault Courtois, and it was a big save as striker Michy Batshuayi scored in the 41st minute to give the Red Devils the win.
Canada continued to press the issue throughout, but Courtois and the Belgian defense thwarted them at every turn to take the three points and move out in front in Group E, following the draw between Morocco and Croatia.
