Doha (Qatar), November 24: Wayne Rooney, a former England footballer, labelled Germany's second-half tactics as complacent, and Japan took it to the sword on Wednesday.The former Manchester United manager was speaking on a Viacom18 Sports FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 preview and spoke about Germany's humiliating loss to Japan.The Japanese team was a constant threat to Germany, according to Rooney.Yeah, I didn't see it coming.

When X players are referring to teams or players becoming complacent, I think just before they scored the first goal.I think there were times when the ball went down to challenge and you became a little bit complacent, a bit rude, and just showing off a little bit before you lost your focus.Maybe that's what happened to Germany and Japan, they were a very poor country, they took advantage of it and deserved the win, according to Rooney.Luis Figo, a former Portugal player, also discussed how the game's outcome surprised him.For me, it was a surprise after the first forty-five minutes because I think they did well.

You lose the first game and now you're under pressure, according to Figo.On Wednesday, Japan made a spectacular comeback to win the FIFA World Cup group E match against Germany, defeating the four-time champions 2-1 in the Khalifa International Stadium, scoring in the 75th minute through Ritsu Doan and in the 83rd minute through Takuma Asano.
