FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: FULL TIME! Spain 1-1 Germany
Everyone embraces, Luis Enrique seems to be having some tactical discussions with Hansi Flick and the players, many of whom play together in either Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich smile and hug each other. This may have been only a 1-1 draw but it was as high quality as one would expect when two teams of such rich recent tactical history come together. Both sides can also be content with this result. Spain sit pretty at the top of the table while Germany get a point in their kitty. Make no mistake though, the 2014 champions are in a fair bit of pressure. They have no choice but to beat Costa Rica in their next match and hope that Japan don't do a number on Spain.

Spain vs Germany Live score: BIG CHANCE FOR GERMANY!
Absolutely brilliant goalkeeping from Unai Simon. Sane is free on goal down the left but Simon comes forward at exactly the right time to close down the angle. Sane ends up running too long and the danger is snuffed out.

Spain vs Germany Live score: HALF-TIME! Spain 0-0 Germany
Not too many clear cut chances but that was an intriguing half. Spain were not able to let their tiki-taka flow easily because of Germany's incredible press. But Germany have also had their own issues.

ESP vs GER FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: 2 minutes of added time
Nothing much happens in the five minutes after that. Spain have had more of the ball but they have done anything but dominate. If it ends goalless, it will be a fairless reflection of the half.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: GOAL DISALLOWED!
39 mins: Antonio Rudiger thought he had scored, so did everyone including the scorers but then VAR says that he was offside. But then there are no arguments as VAR had ruled out the goal almost immediately.

33 mins: Ferran Torres would be relieved to see the offside flag really. Olmo charges forward through the left, squares it to Torres inside the practically empty box and he just has turn it into goal. Instead he blazes the ball over it. That is when the referee says taht Olmo was offside.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: The German press
30 mins: Not the German newspapers, but the way their attackers are pressing the Spaniards. Spain are now unable to get any flow going in their tiki-taka and that is because Germany are pressing down almost every single player in red who gets on the ball. It means that the game is being played mostly in the Spanish half but near the midfield, nothing going into either box. This passage is oneis for the connoisseurs.

Spain vs Germany Live score: Almost costly blunder from Neuer!
26 mins: Poor clearance from Neuer, Gavi intercepts it and threads it to Ferran Torres. The former Manchester City man's first touch is a poor one and the ball loops up in the air for Neuer to collect.

6 mins: Olmo with a rip-roaring attempt from about 30 yards out on the left at the far post. Neuer dives to his left to make the save. That shot came at the end of some vintage Spanish tiki-taka. Very strong start from the 2010 champions.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: The effect of Japan's loss
If Japan had defeated Costa Rica earlier today, this game would have been make or break for Germany. But Costa Rica did one on the Japanese and that means that even if Germany lose today, they can still go through with a big win over Costa Rica. That will have to coincide with a Spanish victory over Japan of course.

Spain vs Germany Live score: Hello and welcome!
Right then, Germany got the shock of their lives in their first match of the World Cup but they shouldn't have been too shocked considering they did lose to Korea in the last World Cup. While that marked the end of their chances of making it out of the group stage, they do have more than a chance of making it back into contention for Round of 16. First, they have to beat Spain, who started the tournament with a 7-0 drubbing of Costa Rica. Easy, right? No nervous laughter at all among the German fans.
