The match was generally even, with both teams creating several clear-cut chances. But only the Germans were able to score the decisive goal.

The first goal opportunity came with Neymar in the first 18 minutes of the match. The Brazilian went head to head with goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. But the German goalkeeper repelled his shot on two occasions.

Poland’s Robert Lewandowski was then able to open the scoring for the Germans after a half-volley in the area on minute 22´. But his shot crashed into the goal post.

As the first half wore on, Kylian Mbappe received a back pass from Ander Herrera taking advantage of an error in Bayern’s exit. The Frenchman fired a soft shot that went straight into the hands of Neuer on minute 44´.

In the second half, Hansi Flick’s team took the lead through Kingsley Coman, who headed a cross into Joshua Kimmich’s area in the 59th minute to beat Costa Rica’s Navas.

Coman himself was able to increase the gap in favour of the Bavarians with a cross-shot. But Thiago Alcantara save it almost from the line in the 63rd minute.

Neuer, one of Germany’s top players, saved the score again in the 70th minute after holding Marquinhos’ shot three metres from goal.
