How to watch and stream Costa Rica against Germany on TV and online in the United States, United Kingdom, Africa & India.

The2022 World Cup 's 'Group of Death' has not disappointed as Costa Rica and Germany find themselves bottom of Group E ahead of their final group clash at the Al-Bayt Stadium on Thursday. Spain and Japan currently hold a slight advantage in the group.

Costa Rica bounced back from a 7-0 mauling at the hands of La Roja with a 1-0 win over Japan, against whom the Germans had faced a shock 2-1 defeat in their opener before leaving it late to snatch a point from Spain in a 1-1 draw.

It's a must-win game for Hansi Flick's men with Germany needing a favour from Spain, while Luis Fernando Suarez will also hope for Japan to lose in case Costa Rica pick up only a point on Thursday.

Germany squad and team news

Leroy Sane's return from a knee injury as a substitute against Spain indicates the Bayern Munich man can start against Costa Rica, which could result in Ilkay Gundogan being dropped into a deeper role in place of Leon Goretzka.

Flick will have to choose between Niclas Fullkrug and Thomas Muller to lead the line of attack, while Lukas Klostermann or Nico Schlotterbeck could be seen starting ahead of Thilo Kehrer on the right side of defence.
