Group Match - Nothing Doing

Group C

Travel to Japan Japan vs Travel to Greece Greece in Natal.

Match Preview

Japan and Greece played each other in Frankfurt, during the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup.

Japan won the group stage game (1:0).

The Match

Greece and Japan failed to score a goal, thus Colombia advanced to the second round.

Red Card Kostas Katsouranis was dismissed in the 38th minute for receiving his second booking within eleven minutes. Some people just don't learn.

Japan may have felt they had a chance in the second-half, but a ten-man Greece only proved more resilient, as is often the case.

Substitution Shinji Kagawa was introduced in the 57th minute, for Yuya Osako.

The result could have been different had Yoshito Okubo, arriving free at the far post, not wasted his chance.

Maya Yoshida was also off target, before Georgios Samaras tried to break the deadlock and snatch a winner for Greece at the other end.
