In Germany there are fears that Spain could live well with a bankruptcy against Japan. The Spaniards would still be through as group runners-up, even if they narrowly lost to Japan, as long as Germany didn’t win 8-0 or better against Costa Rica at the same time.

The Spaniards might prefer second place in the group as they are the top favourites Brazil could avoid until the final and the opponent in the quarterfinals probably only Portugal would.

However, the cooperation between Japan and Spain has nothing to do with the game. The presidents of both countries only used the favorable opportunity in Qatar to meet and extend the agreement already tied in 2020.

At that time, the two associations had already concluded a cooperation agreement. Due to the corona pandemic, however, the exchange and cooperation could not take place as desired. However, friendlies have already been played in women’s, U21 and futsal. Knowledge sharing meetings were also held.

Now the cooperation is to be intensified. Spain’s association president Luis Rubiales (45) and Japan’s association president Kohzo Tashima (65) have agreed on this. In the future there will also be strategic planning with a special focus on the training of coaches and referees and the perfection of digitization.

Finally, the Spanish Football Association wrote in its statement on the agreed cooperation: “As long as the ball is rolling, a healthy rivalry is part of it. After that, both federations will work together in harmony to further strengthen their relationship.”
