Brave Japan stopped by Turkey
Japan's World Cup dream has finally ended after they lost 1-0 to Turkey. Despite the continued support of their passionate home fans, Japan struggled to break down a resolute Turkish defence.
Umit Davala scored with a header early in the first half from a corner, and now Turkey will face Senegal in their first ever World Cup quarter-final.
Although the co-hosts have now bowed out of the tournament, they have helped contribute to one of the most open World Cups ever.
