After the end of the first half, Japan trailed 1-0 against Germany during their first game in the FIFA Soccer World Cup Qatar 2022. However, it seems that “the opening began to sound” since, in the second half, the Japanese team managed to score two goals in just ten minutes and close the game with a victory. This represents Germany’s second world cup loss to an Asian team, in fact Germany have lost three of the last four world cup games since their disappointing run in the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018.
Japan is currently in Group E, accompanied by great soccer powers such as Spain, Germany and Costa Rica, and Although he was considered “the weakest of the group”, it seems that many will have to change their thinking given the recent results.. Of course, the Japanese social networks were filled with images of celebration at this unexpected result, such as the following video where fans gathered at Shibuya Crossing to celebrate victory.
By the way, did you know that in Japan they have an otter that they use to predict the results? The otter is called “Taiyo (たいよう)” and picks up a small ball to deposit into one of three containers marked “Japan Win”, “Draw”, and “Germany Win”. What’s interesting is that in the most recent prediction game, the otter voted for Japan, getting it right.
And of course, in the stands of the Japanese fans could not miss many people dressed in cosplay of anime characters. As expected, a person dressed as Anya Forger from the franchise appeared again. SPY x FAMILY. It seems that the series is very popular this season!
Synopsis of SPY x FAMILY
For the agent known as “Twilight”, no order is too high if it is for the sake of peace. Operating as Westalis’ master spy, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from unleashing a war with neighboring Ostania. For his latest mission, he must investigate Ostanian politician Donovan Desmond by infiltrating his son’s school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Thus, the agent faces the most difficult task of his career: getting married, having a child and playing family.
Twilight, or “Loid Forger,” quickly adopts humble orphan Anya to play the role of a six-year-old daughter and a prospective student at Eden Academy. As a wife, she meets Yor Briar, a distracted office worker who needs a fake partner to impress her friends. However, Loid is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor is actually the deadly assassin “Thorn Princess” and for her, marrying Loid creates the perfect cover. Meanwhile, Anya is not the ordinary girl that she appears to be; she is an esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds. Although she discovers her true identities, Anya is thrilled that her new parents are great secret agents! She would never tell them, of course. That would ruin the fun.
