Japan, on Wednesday, came from a goal down to stun four-time champions Germany in a Group E fixture of the ongoing FIFA World Cup. Ilkay Gundogan had put Germany ahead with a penalty in the 33rd minute at the Khalifa International Stadium. However, second-half strikes from Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano left the Germans scratching their heads as Japan secured a 2-1 to go top of Group E, ahead of the game between Spain and Costa Rica. After Japan stunned Germany, football fans flooded social media with funny memes.
