Maybe Antonio Rudiger Was Trying To make mockery of Japan's Asano, But Minutes Later Table Turned

Antonio Rudiger was slammed for disrespecting Japan's Takuma Asano by prancing while racing him to the ball.

With the Four-Time World Champions leading 1:0 in the first group game, the former Chelsea defender was seen defending a ball over the top. His arms are like a carton character running through a treacle, but he makes progress when it appears that he shouldn't.

That over-zealous came back to haunt them as Japan demonstrated their class by scoring two goals late in the game, which ended 2:1 in favor of Japan.

It was something that caught my eye at the time but looked somewhat embarrassing in retrospect.

Football legends, commentators, and fans were dissatisfied with his running style, especially as the whole continent is watching. I believe, he was embarrassed when he sees the outcome of the result.

The spirit of the game should be respected no matter the scoreline. it's very important to respect your opponents, and Fans watching the game.
