Saints defender Maya Yoshida captained Japan during their 1-1 away draw with Iraq in FIFA World Cup qualifying.

The visitors took the lead after just eight minutes when Keisuke Honda’s corner found Yuya Osako, who headed home at the near post.

And they looked to be heading for a victory, until 17 minutes from time, when Madhi Kamil’s goal helped rescue a point.

That leveller, coupled with Thailand’s draw against UAE means the race for the top three spots will go down to the final matchday, with Japan still leading Group B on 17 points.
