Japan thrash Bantwana at U17 WC

Japan comprehensively humbled Bantwana 6-0 at the FIFA Women’s U/17 World Cup in Group B on Friday evening.

After a hard-fought opening draw with Mexico, the South Africans had their work cut out for them as early as the fourth minute.

Haruka Osawa made the most from poor defending to finish into an empty net to give the Japanese an early lead.

Following the set back, Bantwana tried to get back but were suffering with the drowning affect in the sweltering Maldonado heat.

Japan made it two after 23 minutes when Tanaka Tomoko capitalised on a loose ball for an easy finish into an empty net.

Bantwana were trying their best but the experience of the counterparts made ultra-hard for them to even conjure up any offensive movement.

Japan were handed a penalty and a chance to add a third after a foul inside the box. Tomoko stepped forward and blazed the roof of the net with a thumping finish.

Captain Sara Ito found time and space in the box to tuck away the fourth which deflected off a defender before finding the net.

Danger woman Osawa closed in on a second, but from close range blazed the stands instead of the back of the net a minute to halftime.
