The Spaniards were better for almost the entire match and they reflected it on the scoreboard until minute 62 with the goal of Alvaro Morata; However, the Germans, whose genetics prevent them from stopping fighting until the end, found the equalizer at 83′ through Niclas Füllkrug.
With this result, Spain reaches 4 points and leads the Group E, escorted by Japan and Costa Rica with 3 units; further back Germany with one, but still with a mathematical chance of advancing in the round.

Spain found oil at 62′, when alvaro morata finished off with first intention, despite the mark of Niklas Sule, after an assist of Jordi Albaand the auction was so fast that it left without a chance to neuer.
