10 minutes later the engaged Japanese remuded the old distance. The good combination on the right side and Fukuda only had to put the ball over the line. Afterwards Japan missed to score more goals.
Surprisingly South Africa was able to come closer in the 57th minute. Again it was Symons with a good flick after a penalty corner.
In minute sixty and sixty- seven Japan was able to get through the confused South African defense and scored two more goals.
A completely earned victory of the lively Japanese against tired and uncertainly working South Africans. So Japan goes in the match for rank 9, South Africa must strive to become not the latter of this World Cup.
