Germany salvaged a late draw against Spain in their World Cup Group E clash in Qatar on Sunday, but Hansi Flick’s men must now beat Costa Rica to stand any chance of reaching the knockout stages of the tournament.

Werder Bremen striker Fullkrug, 29, only made his national team debut on the eve of the tournament, but emerged as his country’s savior as Germany avoided suffering another defeat after their shock opening game loss to Japan.

Japan’s own surprise defeat against Costa Rica earlier on Sunday means Group E is finely poised heading into the last round of games on Thursday.
