Die Mannschaft missed out on the knockout stage of the World Cup in Qatar after finishing third in Group E, with Japan and Spain qualifying as first and second respectively. In hindsight, Germany's World Cup campaign was lost in their opening game against eventual group winners Japan, who beat them 2-1. The Germans drew their next game 1-1 with Spain and the 4-2 win over Costa Rica was immaterial as they were stuck in third.
A police statement confirmed that “no threat of violence was involved” in the incident.
