2022 FIFA World Cup: Japan 0-1 Costa Rica

Japan have failed to take another step towards the World Cup knockout rounds after suffering a 1-0 defeat against Costa Rica in Group E.

Following their shock win over Germany in their opening match, the Samurai Blue were frustrated by a tight defensive unit, before Keysher Fuller struck with Costa Rica's first shot on target at the tournament, 9 minutes from time. It was a remarkable victory for Costa Rica, who had lost their first match 7-0 to Spain. The result leaves both teams on 3 points after two games.
