Keysher Fuller has scored with Costa Rica’s only shot on target to condemn Japan to a surprise 1-0 defeat at the World Cup.
Costa Rica bounce back to stun Japan
Costa Rica showed real resilience to bounce back from their 7-0 thrashing by Spain to record a surprise 1-0 victory over Japan in Group E of the Qatar World Cup.
Keysher Fuller scored in the 81st minute for Costa Rica on Sunday, leaving both teams with three points after two games in the World Cup.
Fuller took advantage of a defensive error when Japan failed to clear their lines and then made a second mistake by playing him onside.
Fuller took deliberate aim from the edge of the area and his precise shot just made it into the net off the fingertips of Japan’s goalkeeper, Shuichi Gonda, who should have done better.
