SHINJI SCORES AS JAPAN SUBDUE SUB-CONTINENTALS

Japan scored four times without reply against India in Calcutta Wednesday to extend their World Cup qualifying record to 12 points from 4 games. The visitors took the lead on the stroke of half time through Takayuki Suzuki, before letting out the throttle in the second period, wrapping up the victory with goals from Shinji Ono, Takashi Fukunishi and Tsuneyasu Miyamoto. It’s Japan’s second win against the Indians in the campaign, following the 7-0 drubbing in Saitama back in June.

The triumph keeps the Japanese at the head of their group, three points better off than main pursuer Oman. The two countries are now set to face off in a decider in the Gulf 13 October, with the East Asia outfit realistically needed only a draw to progress to the next qualifying stage as Japan close out the pool at home to group whipping-boys Singapore in November.
