ONO PLAYS TWENTY MINUTES AS JAPAN GO DOWN

Niigata’s Big Swan stadium was the venue to be if you were Japanese Wednesday evening as the nation’s international team took on African champions Senegal. The result was disappointing for the home side however, as Papa Bouba Diop earned the visitors a win with a sixth-minute strike. Feyenoorder Shinji Ono played the last twenty minutes of the match, and his entrance got the biggest cheer of the night from the 40,000 crowd.

Japan was unable to stand up to the Africans and only really got to grips with the game in the second half, when the home side generated a couple of opportunities in front of goal. But even the introduction of national hero Ono with twenty left on the clock was unable to inspire the Japanese to greater things. Best chance of the night was indeed created by Ono, who sent Masashi Motoyama clear within five minutes of coming on, but the striker was unable to beat the keeper when he should have done better. The good news for Feyenoord fans is that Ono came through the match unscathed.
