FIFA U-17 World Cup: Japan Flashes Title Credentials in Dutch Kiss

Japan laid out their credentials at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019™ with a convincing 3-0 win over the Netherlands in Vitoria on Sunday.

Yamato Wakatsuki scored in each half, while Jun Nishikawa added a third from the penalty spot as the Asian champions made a statement of intent at Brazil 2019.
Japan grabbed a stranglehold of the match as the first half progressed, with their opener nine minutes before the break proving a portent of things to come. Impressive No10 Nishikawa set up striker Wakatsuki for the opener, and reprised the feat midway through the second half with an inch-perfect pass. Nishikawa got his reward from the penalty spot 13 minutes from fulltime after a spot-kick was awarded for handball.
