Japan vs New Zealand highlights (4-2)

Japan 4 vs 2 New Zealand highlights 5.3

Japan continue to pick up positive results on their friendly fixtures ahead of the upcoming 2014 as this midweek they demolished New Zealand at National Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. The home side immediately took control of situation as they went one goal up after only four minutes of play through Shinji Okazaki's effort. Things really got comfortably for the Blues Samurai as three minutes later they double their lead from Shinji Kagawa's spot kick.

The Nippon side continue their early domination by netting home a third goal from Masato Morishige on 11 minutes, before eventually snatching their fourth on 17 minutes through Okazaki's second. That comfortable 4-0 lead seemed to make Japan slacking off a bit as their opponent managed to pull one back just before half time break with an effort from Chris Wood, who scored on 39 minutes. New Zealand continue to push forward after the break and eventually snatched another goal 10 minutes from time through Wood's second, which restored a bit of pride for the away side.
