Good news for STVV, KAA Gent and Union SG. Worse news for Koki Machida, Tsuyoshi Watanabe and Zion Suzuki, as Japan was eliminated from the Asian Cup.
Japan took on Iran in the quarter-finals of the Asian Cup on Saturday. Japan took the lead just before the half hour mark with a goal from Morita. Iran’s equalizer followed shortly after halftime.
At the very end of the match, the Samurai Blue was shocked when Iran scored the decisive goal from the spot. 2-1 in the 96th minute ensured the elimination.
STVV sees goalkeeper Zion Suzuki return. By the way, he was in the starting line-up in the match against Iran. KAA Gent expects Watanabe back soon and Union SG is preparing to see Koki Machida again. Both stayed on the couch. The Buffaloes have already responded to X that the club is happy with the return of its defender.
