FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup: Group C MD 3 Results and Table

The Little Nadeshiko’s final Group C game was one in which their domination was practically total, reflected not only in the 9-0 scoreline, but in a shot count which totaled twenty-six, seventeen of those on target, while restricting Mexico to a single effort.

Two goals apiece from Akari Shiraki and Ayaka Inoue were bookended by strikes from Risa Shimizu, Yui Maruyama, Hina Sugita, Yuka Momiki and Mizuki Kanamura. Inoue’s splendid swerving eighteen-yard strike ten minutes after the restart and Momiki’s 79th minute free-kick were the pick of several well-worked goals, with Maruyama providing two assists. Japan end Group C as winners with an impressive of tally of seventeen goals scored and none conceded, and will proceed to the quarter-final stage of the competition confident of further progress.

(Gainare Tottori took a further stride towards safety with a 2-0 victory at home to Thespa Kusatsu. Shota Koide netted a rebound after Eijiro Mori’s drive had been well saved by Kazuma Kita, and an own goal one minute from time made the points safe for Hideo Yoshizawa’s men. Gainare are now four points clear of FC Machida Zelvia, who remain bottom)

J.League Division 1 Matchday 27 in 10 stats

  • Leandro’s goalscoring and his importance to Gamba Osaka is self-evident, but less noticed is that the Suita side are yet to lose a J.League match in which he has been part of the starting eleven. His 92nd minute equaliser against Kashima Antlers extends that remarkable sequence of results to eight games.
  • Only Sanfrecce Hiroshima and Urawa Red Diamonds (17) have taken more points from their fixtures than Gamba (16) since Leandro made his first start on Matchday 19. Cerezo Osaka and Shimizu S-Pulse have also taken sixteen points in the same period of time.

(After Simplico had scored a late winner for Cerezo Osaka on Matchday 26 against Shimizu S-Pulse, their resilience was once again on display as they came from two goals behind against Vissel Kobe to win the match 3-2. Cerezo were required to overcome the loss of Yusuke Maruhashi, who was deservedly sent off for a rash challenge on Takuya Nozawa with thirty minutes to play, and Simplicio netted twice before Takuma Edmura scored with a ferocious drive to give Cerezo the points. The result puts Levir Culpi’s side six points clear of the relegation places, and they now reside in the relative comfort of twelfth position in the table)
