New Caledonia hold Japan to 1-1 draw

New Caledonia hold Japan to 1-1 draw”

New Caledonia finished bottom of the group after conceding 13 goals in their three matches and their midfielder Neil Wahiobe picked up the only yellow card of the game for a 90th-minute foul. It looked like a walk in the park for the Japanese who toyed the U-17 World Cup debutants. The result means that Japan finish second in Group E with four points, and will stay in Kolkata for their round of 16 clash on October 17 against England. The Japan coach is likely to make quite a few changes to his starting XI both in order to try out those who haven't had a kick-about so far and also to keep his key players fresh for the tougher battles ahead.

New Caledonia, the newest member from the Oceania, have already leaked 12 goals already in two matches as another lopsided contest is on offer.

Japan had their fair share of possession in the second-half but New Caledonia started to cause a threat late on.

Honduras, on the other hand, would have to produce something extraordinary to beat their more superior rivals tomorrow though they are also not short on confidence after their 5-0 thrashing of New Caledonia, their biggest win at a U-17 World Cup. In the 34th minute, Nakamura's right footed shot from the centre of the box was blocked by Pierre Bako, while in the 42nd minute his shot from the centre of the box was again blocked.

There were some gilt-edged opportunities for New Caledonia to score as well, with striker Theo Bosshard and his substitute Vita Longue missing out on chances either side of half-time. The pressure paid off as Jeno scored the equaliser with seven minutes of regulation time left.
