game went with the form book and the Japanese
led 2-0 at half-time and went on to increase that
lead by the end of the match to 5-0. The goals
were shared around with Kenya Matsumoto and Gaku
Sato each scoring twice to add to Naohiro Watanabe's
first goal of the day.
win meant that Samurai Japan leapfrogged Plantaciones
Inside into first place and to claim the Group
A title. Amazingly they had just conceded one
goal so far in their 4 games and would be a team
to look out for in the Cup draw. Karma FC were
also likely to make the Plate with their two challengers
AON Top Guns and Atlantic Star taking on each
other in the final game of this group.
