Japan edged Ecuador 1-0 to Fifa 15 Account clinch top spot in Group C in the concepts their opponents’ final outing at the FIFA Women’s World Cup™.
Ecuador may be happy with limiting the reigning world champions into a slim victory, especially if you do more lopsided losses up against the likes of Cameroon and Switzerland. The truth is, after conceding an early on goal to Yuki Ogimi, whose final trigger of captain Aya Miyama’s shot crashed off of the underside of the crossbar, the South Americans stopped the Nadeshiko from finding much joy looking at goal.
The only clear-cut chance, which has been easily saved by goalkeeper Shirley Berruz, came ten mins after Japan’s goal when Miyama’s downward header ended up being tipped over bar by Berruz after a little great skill by Saori Ariyoshi to build space and whip in the cross.
Japan continued to press forward with several attempts, but nothing particularly troubling for Berruz. Ecuador rarely troubled the Asians’ backline, but when it was not for any sliding tackle from Megumi Kaminobe inside the 65th minute to clear raise the risk, Kerlly Real would have certainly leveled matters for Ecuador.
Yuika Sugasawa drew a gasp on the fifa crowd with her acrobatic overhead-kick ten minutes from time, but her effort hit the crossbar. Berruz then saved Mama Iwabuchi’s point-blank shot to maintain it 1-0 a couple of minutes later.
On the final whistle, Ecuador left the sector – although eliminated on the Women’s World Cup – proud to obtain saved the most beautiful performance at Canada 2015 ’till the end.
