“From my angle, I think the ball was clearly half out, but more than that I could not see because of the speed,” Tanaka said. “I was concentrating in scoring. There was always a possibility that it was out … But in the end it was a goal, so that was great.”

All said and done, Japan has played some terrific football over the past week and hence is totally deserving of the knockouts. Japan finished at the top of Group E and will next face Croatia. Spain will take on Group F winner Morocco.
