2009-06-10 Japan 1-1 Qatar
Posted by stefanole on 2009/06/14
Some more questionable refereeing decisions probably lead to Japan’s squandering three points in this game. A ridiculous penalty for Qatar was converted to their only goal in a game in which only a win for Qatar would have been enough for them to have any hope of qualifying for the World Cup next year. Japan have already qualified but a win would have seen them push Australia for the prestige of winning their qualifying group.
Still no cap for Makino.
