World Cup Group E
Everything you need to know about the group that includes former champions Spain and Germany

Group E of the 2022 World Cup features former world champions Germany and Spain alongside Costa Rica and Japan.

After an underwhelming performance in Russia, where Germany were ousted from the group stage, Die Mannschaft will hope for improved performance in the upcoming World Cup.

Meanwhile, 2010 World Cup champions Spain did not enjoy much success in the previous two editions of the tournament either as they were eliminated from the group stages and round of 16 respectively. This time around, a young Furia Roja under Luis Enrique's tutelage will try to restore the lost glory.

Both Costa Rica and Japan have an uphill task to make it past the group stages in the presence of two of the giants of European football.
