Former Germany International, Dietmar Hamann has slammed former Chelsea star, Antonio Rudiger, branding the defender ‘unprofessional’ and ‘arrogant’ for showboating during Germany’s 2-1 defeat to Japan.

It was another shocking night to many football followers as the European giants were humbled by Japan in Qatar in their World Cup opener.

Germany’s defeat came a couple of hours after Argentina were beaten by a lowly rated Saudi Arabia.

Ritsu Doan equalised for Japan before Takuma Asano scored the late winner to give the Asians all three points.

Rudiger, meanwhile, showboated with Germany leading 1-0 as he used a bizarre running style to shepherd the ball out of play.

And Hamann hit out at the Real Madrid defender’s ill-timed gesture towards Japan.

“Rudiger knows he’s going to run the ball out of play and he lifts up his legs,” Hamann told RTE.

“You don’t belittle the opposition because it always comes back at some stage.

“I think it was very unprofessional. I think it was out of order. Arrogant. There’s no defence for it whatsoever
