SOCCER

Four-time World Cup winners Germany have started their Group E campaign in Qatar.

Hansi Flick's team are taking on Japan at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha.

It's 0-0 with the game just underway.

It's ended scoreless in the World Cup Group F match between Morocco and Croatia.

It was a closely fought battle in the heat of Qatar and chances were few and far between.

Morocco goalkeeper Yassine Bounou denied Croatia's Nikola Vlasic  just before half time - and in the second half - Morocco's Achraf Hakimi forced a save from Croatian number one Dominik Livakovic with a 35 yard free kick.
