Japan caused their second shock of this year’s World Cup as they came from 1-0 down to beat Spain 2-1, topping Group E as a result.
After their opening group fixture win over Germany, their supporters certainly didn’t think they’d be able to upset the 2010 champions, but that’s exactly what happened as Hajime Moriyasu’s team took the three points.
Alvaro Morata gave Spain the lead after 11 minutes but two early second half goals from Ritsu Doan and Ao Tanaka turned the match around.
After the game, a video began doing the rounds on Twitter of a young Japan fan outside the stadium jumping around shouting “Where is Morata?”, as he was egged on by his fellow supporters.
