Yesterday Japan took on Morocco at St. James’ Park in Newcastle
It was a fun day all around with Japan earning a hard fought victory 1 – 0 over Morocco and securing themselves a place in the Quarter-Finals of the Olympic Football tournament.
In the other match of the day at St. James’ Spain were suprisingly knocked out of the tournement by the plucky Honduras team 1 – 0.
Japan’s next game is on Wednesday the 1st of August in Coventry at 5pm where they will take on Honduras in the last group D match up of the opening stage in a battle of the leaders of group D.
Howay Samurai Blue!!
