Niclas Fullkrug gave Germany a lifeline against Spain with his late equalizer, and now the European side will need to secure their first win of the World Cup as they take on Costa Rica in their Group E finale.
A late addition to the Germany World Cup roster, Fullkrug came on as a substitute and played hero in the 83rd minute, sharing the spoils and allowing Germany a view towards a knockout stage spot.
While Germany do not control their own destiny, all pathways to the Round of 16 start with victory over Costa Rica, as anything less will see them eliminated.
Should Germany secure three points here against their CONCACAF opponents, they would also require Japan not to emerge victorious over Spain, and they would go through. There is one possible but unlikely scenario that would see Germany out on tiebreakers in the event of a Japan-Spain draw, but it would require a score of unlikely result combinations.
