Daichi Kamada fired wide after a smooth counter-attack from Japan minutes before Daizen Maeda deservedly put them ahead in the 43rd minute, firing from point-blank range after Ritsu Doan sent a cross into the penalty area.

Daizen Maeda had put Japan in front in the first half, before Ivan Perisic equalized to send the game to an additional 30 minutes, where neither team could find a winner.
