Yoshida's Japan seal dramatic win

By SFC Media Thu 06 Oct Maya Yoshida

Maya Yoshida played the full 90 minutes as Japan sealed a dramatic 2-1 victory over Iraq.

The FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifier looked as though it would end level, but Vahid Halilhodzicā€™s side won it in stoppage time, as Hotaru Yamaguchi found the net.

Yoshida and Japan had taken the lead with 25 minutes gone, as Genki Haraguchi converted, but the visitors levelled on the hour mark through Saad Natiq Naji.

Japan pressed for a winner and it eventually arrived late in the game, as Yamaguchi, a second half substitute, found the back of the net.

Yoshida and Japan will be back in action on Tuesday morning, when they face Australia at 10am BST.
