Stephen Adeniran



Japan has qualified for the FIFA 2018 in a victory over Australia 2-0 at home on Thursday, making their sixth successive qualification into the World Cup tournament as Takuma Asano and Yosuke Ideguchi were on target.

Asano steered home a left-foot volley four minutes before half-time and Ideguchi sealed the victory with a stunning long-range strike after 82 minutes as Japan became the fourth team to reach next year’s finals in Russia.
