Japanese team's incredible show of respect after World Cup exit

Sanchez Reveals His Pick For World Cup Golden Boot

Sanchez Reveals His Pick For World Cup Golden Boot

"We have players that can change a game. At a time when they must have been seriously frustrated", tweeted another. "We need to play together, give everything and see what happens".

What time do the FIFA World Cup 2018 Brazil vs Mexico, Belgium vs Japan football matches begin?

It is a wall that Asian teams have managed to scale only twice: when South Korea reached the semi-finals on home soil in 2002, and their cousins in the North got to the last eight at the 1966 World Cup in England.

Despite failing to get on the scoresheet, the 25-year-old helped to commit Japan defenders in the build-up to Belgium's stoppage-time victor, as well as producing a perfectly-timed feint before Chadli slotted home.

I don't tend to talk a lot, but if I have to then I'll do it.

Belgium's number nine player, Romelu Lukaku has been the object of praise of Twitter users, after his role in the Belgian's victory over Japan on Monday. "For us, who play in the Premier League, we're happy to have a few more days off".




Meanwhile, Spanish club Real Betis will feel vindicated for their signing of Japan's breakout star Takashi Inui.

"The group is in a very good moment, mentally and physically", he said.

"We lost, but they left everything on the pitch", said 23-year-old Sawa Okada.

But, as revealed by Federation Internationale de Football Association general coordinator Priscilla Janssens on her social media handle, Japan's squad went the extra mile to salute their hosts in Russia as they bowed out.

He will nearly certainly be replaced by Manchester City's Fernandinho, another favorite of Brazil manager Tite, who has played some part in every Brazil game at this year's World Cup. "We will have to pay attention because they are used to causing teams problems in both boxes". Coach Tite insists his talisman is now approaching his best form again, four months after undergoing surgery on a fractured foot.

"We were so excited when Japan took the lead".
