Azpilicueta speaks on Spain losing on purpose to eliminate Germany
The assertion that Spain lost to Japan knowing that Germany would be eliminated from the 2022 World Cup has been refuted by Cesar Azpilicueta, a defender for Spain.
The expectation for Luis Enrique's team was that they would win all three points in their final Group E match.
Alvaro Morata gave them the lead, but they still dropped the game 2-1.
Despite finishing second in the group, Spain still advanced to the Round of 16. They also avoided the possibility of playing Brazil in the quarterfinals because of this.
“I was aware. In the second half [of the Germany scoreline], I was on the bench, so I was aware of the situation."
“We are the first to be disappointed not to win the game, so you can see what happened." It was difficult because it’s something that you cannot control, the other game. "The only thing we could do was try to give confidence and help our teammates win our game,” Azpilicueta said.
Spain will face Morocco for a place in the quarterfinals.
