An eight-minute blitz by super subs Ritsu Dosan and Takuma Asano saw Japan storm Germany 2-1 in their opening World Cup match at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha on Wednesday.

Doan, who came on for Ao Tanaka in the 75th minute found the net from a Manuel Neuer rebound just four minutes after coming on, while Asano produced a smashing finish to beat the German keeper at his near post in the 83rd minute.
