Japan reached the round of 16 at the last World Cup and gave Belgium all they could stomach before going down 3-2, while Costa Rica surprised everyone in 2014 when they emerged victorious with England, Italy and Uruguay in Group D and then Greece defeated in the round of 16.

Of course, Spain coach Luis Enrique and Germany’s Hansi Flick will pose as favorites from the group, but the latter now knows better than ever that anything can happen in Qatar after a 2-1 defeat by Kapan.
