Chile 0 – 1 Japan (Rifu)
Mana Iwabuchi set up Tanaka’s late winner against Chile in Rifu, which also sees them qualify for the quarter-finals, where they will play in-form Sweden on Friday.
Iwabuchi is so soo good, makes everything look so easy.
Here she is receiving under pressure with her back to goal, holds up the defender & then slides a great ball through for Tanaka
Japan's passing in the final third coupled with their movements is a thing of beauty to watch! https://t.co/N4stuYELfE
