Live comments

  • 0' - The referee blows the starting whistle. The fans are roaring. The teams are ready for the match. Japan is hosting Spain for another epic battle.
  • 5' - Dani Carvajal needs to be pretty careful with his discipline considering 0 Yellow cards this season.
  • 10' - Japan looks like a favorite considering 1 games won in last 1 matches with its main striker Ao Tanaka scoring 3 goals.
  • 11' - What a strike from Alvaro Morata! The score is 0-1.
  • 12' - Alvaro Morata with the second goal in the match!
  • 17' - The referee is likely to let players tackle, as he already missed some meaty challenges during opening seconds. He is still to establish what should not be done by the players and what is acceptable on the pitch. It’s going to be a tough game for Jordi Alba suffering a number of foals already.
  • 22' - It looks like no one’s ball. Spain is used to counterattacking playing. None of the sides are ready to take the lead.
  • 27' - We miss some good tackles and strikes. Is there anyone on the field to put the game back to action?
  • 32' - Both teams are passing the ball around with high level of urgency. Spain needs to do something about it to get closer to the goal.
  • 37' - Supporters expect more eagerness from Marco Asensio, as he is very good at scoring at Khalifa International Stadium with 0 goals in the last 0 games.
  • 39' - The referee shows Japan player a Yellow card on 39.
  • 44' - The referee calls foul for Shogo Taniguchi. He receives a Yellow card.
  • 45' - Maya Yoshida is having his name booked by the referee on 45.
  • 46' - Time for substitution for Japan. Takefusa Kubo is replaced by Ritsu Doan.
  • 48' - Goal! Ritsu Doan scores his 31 goal in 223 matches.
  • 51' - What an equalizer from Ao Tanaka!
  • 53' - Ao Tanaka with the second goal in the match!
  • 54' - Goal! Ao Tanaka scores his 11 goal in 311 matches.
  • 57' - Ferran Torres has so much to prove this time. He replaces Nico Williams on 57 minute.
  • 62' - Japan manager makes another effort to make the tables turned. Takuma Asano is hanging Daizen Maeda on the field on 62 minute.
  • 67' - Although teams showed high tempo form the start, they seem to slow down a bit. Both sides really need to catch a fire. Otherwise, we have another goalless match.
  • 68' - Ansu Fati has so much to prove this time. He replaces Pablo Gavira on 68 minute.
  • 69' - Another substitution for Spain to replace Alejandro Balde by Jordi Alba on 69 minute.
  • 74' - Players seem to put ease on their energy level Spectators hardly appreciate such approach. Teams need to speed up the tempo.
  • 79' - The travelling Spain supporters hardly appreciate their team being pressed down to the backline.
  • 84' - While players are taking a pause, let’s have a look at their stats. The teams met 1 times this season with Japan winning 100% of all matches.
  • 87' - Wataru Endo has so much to prove this time. He replaces Ao Tanaka on 87 minute.
  • The referee blows the final whistle. Sensational lose for Spain.
