Germany Win With A Late Winner Against Costa Rica

Germany largely controlled their Group C opener in the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 against Costa Rica, but they were made to wait until the 89th minute in Goa when Noah Awuku’s goal gave them the full three points.


Nicolas Kuehn was often the playmaker and starlet Jann-Fiete Arp was the danger man in the box for Germany, and it was the Hamburg striker who opened the scoring with a deft chip in the 21st minute after Kuehn won the ball in midfield and split the defence with his pass.A precise finish into the corner of the net just after the hour mark by Andres Gomez made the score 1-1, and the match looked to be heading to a draw despite Germany’s run of play, but Awuku was the late hero for Christian Wuck’s men, who scored on the 88th minute mark.
