Iran blank Costa Rica to finish top of group

Share

The massive 4-0 loss against Iran in the last game had shattered Germany's confidence and coach Christian Wuck admitted that his team was under great pressure against Guinea here on Friday. Iran's early running, keynote of their huge win over Germany, kept goalkeeper Ricardo Montenegro busy but a goal arrived only after Amferny Arias, acting captain in place of the benched Jose Alfaro, brought down Delfi. Germany only took nine minutes to take the lead in the game, with captain Jann-Fiete Arp scoring the goal from a defensive mistake from the Guinean defence. Costa Rica's best chance fell to Julien Cordero who blasted wide from close range, attempting to score after the promising Yecxy Jarquin drew Ali Gholam Zadeh to a rare but spectacular save midway through the second half. "We were very poor in that game, and the reaction back home wasn't good".

The coach also hailed young keeper Camara for his wonderful performance and added: "The goals were due to the errors from the defence, and am happy with the keeper's performance in the tournament".

Wuck said that the conditions in Kochi were better than in Goa and helped the game a lot.

While Aguero is on the verge of a comeback, captain Vincent Kompany is continuing to struggle with injury problems. It's a big problem for us. "We'll suffer even though we have the exceptional Fabian, Danilo, and even Zinchenko".

Costa Rica, who needed a win to keep themselves in fray for the knockouts, found the going tough and were not allowed space by the Iranian defenders.

"We should not get carried away with the victory against the Germans and instead focus on Costa Rica who always look unsafe in front of the goal with their skillful play", he added. In nearly every match we played in this group, we had 10 chances, but we haven't capitalised.

With the win, Germany have set up a Round of 16 clash against Colombia in New Delhi on Monday. That boils down to beating Costa Rica to guarantee topping the group."Goa is a good omen for us", the stoic Chamanian said , As Reported By TOI. In the first half we made a few mistakes and we conceded two penalties which was a big disadvantage.
