Japan beats Costa Rica 3-0 in friendly

(AFP) Japan gave Costa Rica’s national team the runaround in a 3-0 home victory Tuesday. Sho Sasaki’s header was turned into his own goal by Bryan Oviedo after 16 minutes before second-half goals from Takumi Minamino and substitute Junya Ito settled a one-sided friendly in Osaka.

This was Japan’s first outing since their surprise run to the last 16 of this summer’s World Cup under Akira Nishino had been scheduled to take place last Friday against Chile in Sapporo, the capital of the mountainous northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, was cancelled after an earthquake struck the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido a day earlier, leaving at least 40 people dead.
