>Keigo Higashi created space on the edge of the box, firing a sweeping left-footed drive. That is not by Higashi, but Kiyotake. Japan looked slow from the fatigue by the last game against Spain. Likewise Ohtsu did not seem in the best condition from the injury by yellow card equivalent foul of a Spanish player.
