We’re out!” Even if “the highly controversial millimeter decision in the match between Japan and Spain was bitter”, Bild wrote, referring to the validation of one of the two Japanese goals. And the newspaper adds: “It is possible that Spain did not do everything in its power in the second half to achieve an equalizer, because they preferred to advance to the round of 16 as runners-up.” Others focus more on the technical aspects, starting with the lackluster spectacle presented on the pitch, with the Sueddeutsche Zeitung describing the match as “the result of a great mess”.
