Japan crushed India while South Korea and China both re-corded easy vic-tories as Asian football's big guns all moved a step closer to the 2006 World Cup on Wednesday.
India, footballing novices who have never come close to qualifying for the World Cup, found a rampant Japan too hot to handle in Group 3 as they slumped to a 7-0 defeat at the Saitama Stadium.

South Korea, meanwhile, bidding for a sixth consecutive appearance in the World Cup finals, defeated Vietnam 2-0 while China trounced Malaysia 4-0.

Japan's victory saw the Asian champions maintain their 100 percent start to preliminary qualifying after earlier wins over Oman and Singapore, who play in Muscat later Wednesday.

Tatsuhiko Kubo, Takashi Fuku-nishi, Shunsuke Nakamura, Takayuki Suzuki, Mitsuo Ogasawara and Yuki Nakazawa (2) all got on the scoresheet for Japan to the delight of Brazilian coach Zico.

The scoreline might not have been as emphatic but South Korea were just as convincing as they outclassed Vietnam to stay on top of Group 7.

Ahn Jung-Hwan, one of the heroes of South Korea's march to the semi-finals of the 2002 World Cup, opened the scoring on the half-hour before midfielder Kim Do-Heon added the second in the 62nd minute.

The result erased memories of South Korea's last outing against Vietnam eight months ago when they fell to a shock 1-0 defeat in an Asian Cup qualifier.

That upset set in motion a string of setbacks that included defeat to Oman and a draw to lowly Maldives in March that triggered the abrupt departure in April of coach Humberto Coelho of Portugal.

He has yet to be replaced but there was no danger of another below-par performance Wednes-day as a strong South Korean side dominated the game throughout. South Korea lead the group with seven points from three matches.

Meanwhile, in a Group Five qualifier in Bangkok, North Korea trampled on Thailand's hopes with an emphatic 4-1 away win, featuring a brace of goals from Kim Yong-Su.

In a Group Eight encounter in Jakarta, Indonesia edged out Sri Lanka 1-0 thanks to a first-half strike by Elie Aiboy.

Great going by mighty India!

So, we are better than India! (Let's forget SAF games result )

So far I remember, Our largest defeat against Japan was 0-6.

No it was 0-8 when I was a small kid...:lol:

anyways, this was just another display of how harsh the game of soccer can be at times, on the team that plays better. the japanese were clearly lucky, and luck was the only thing that did not favour the indians, whose powerful shots from the midfield missed the Japanese bar posts by a mere ten yards or so.

all throughout the match, the indians kept a tight defense, and the japanese had to struggle real hard for their goals. the indians played according to their new "give away" strategy, i.e. they ensured that the japanese had the ball in their position most of the time, while they themselves made sure that their own penalty box was safe. however, on a few very unlucky occassions, their defense was torn apart, and the japanese scored off pretty feeble shots, that, unfortunately, the goal keeper couldn't stop.

anyways, this loss has charged the players up, and they are now preparing for the next world cup qualifiers, which they are sure to ace and go on to the finals to win; after all, they were the hot favourites this time.

india was allowed to play in a world cup final once upon a time right? i think it was right after their independence...they probably didn't play because they did not have the money to bye boots...or was it because they hated playing with boots on? i don't quite remember...

Dear Asif,
I honestly don’t have any intentions of offending you. With all due respect to your football knowledge, India was never a favorite in the match against Japan. Before that match they had been humiliated 5-1 by Oman that too at home!!! They never really had a realistic chance of even reaching the second stage of Asian qualifiers let alone The World Cup. As we all know, only the group champions will go through to the next round which undoubtedly will be Japan. South Asia has the worst football standard in the World and even there India never really dictated terms on a regular basis. These favorite tags are the exaggeration of their FAMOUS (!!!) media. They have a long---long---long way to go just to reach the Asian standards let alone World Cup! No offence meant bro..Take care.

Well Shehwar
You missed the sarcasm in my post. I was practising "Amitting", a style adopted by modern day Indian sports writers. This term has a long history, and it's adoption had started long before you even started posting on this forum. The post in question was made when discussion on "Amitting" was at it's peak on this site. I'll post the link for your convenience.

Japan is a good team with good players and they recently beat England away. I do not think india can do that. Thye have the infrastructure, money and amazing stadia in the country which will make them better in the future.

Here in India, almost every sports association is headed by some politician who got there because of his contacts and doesn't know anything about the game. Once they get there, they never quit. The football head has been there for some 25 years and has successfully taken India into some 140th rank in the world.

When India take part in olympics, the squad gets accompanied by a gang of officals who outnumber the athletes. The results are always the same.

Spanish football powerhouse Barcelona whipped former J-League champions Jubilo Iwata 3-0 in Shizuoka, central Japan, on Wednesday to wind up their two-game pre-season series. The writing was on the wall for the J-League side early on when Brazilian striker Ronaldinho's shot hit the bar as early as the third minute. And it was Ronaldinho who, in the 29th minute, dribbled past Toshihiro Hattori, Hideto Suzuki and Takahiro Yamanishi to set up Swedish forward Henrik Larsson for the opener. Larsson bagged his second in the 36th minute when he jumped for a header at a corner delivered by Dutch defender Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

In the second period, Itawa started brightly when their Brazilian striker Gral made a diving header from a Hiroshi Nanami cross in the 48th minute, but the effort went wide. Barcelona managed to add to their tally before the end with Ronaldinho once more producing a skillful pass to Luis Garcia, who scored with a shot in the 63rd minute. Barcelona ended their tour of Japan without conceding a goal, following their 5-0 thrashing of Kashima Antlers on Sunday. In Tokyo, forward Miguel Angel Angulo netted in injury time to give a second-string Valencia a 1-0 win over Kashima Antlers, also finishing a two-game series following a humiliating 5-2 loss to Alvilex Niigata on Sunday.

In Manchester, England, French international defender Mikael Silvestre scored the only goal of the game as Manchester United beat PSV Eindhoven 1-0 in a pre-season friendly at Old Trafford on Tuesday. In the second match of the four-team friendly tournament, Japanese side Urawa Red Diamonds surrended an early lead to lose 5-2 to Argentina's Boca Juniors. United were warming up for this weekend's Community Shield match against Arsenal as well as next week's Champions League qualifier trip to Dinamo Bucharest or MSK Zilina. The only goal came in the second half when Silvestre headed in a Ryan Giggs corner past goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes. Alan Smith came on for his home debut to a rousing reception from the 29,479 crowd.

World Club champions Boca Juniors opened the tournament with a 5-2 win against Urawa Red Diamonds who had former Aston Villa defender Alpay in their ranks. Emerson converted a first minute penalty to give the Japanese side the lead before Boca took charge with two goals in the space of four minutes from Martin Palermo and Fabian Vargas. They extended their lead early in the second half with Franco Cangel and Diego Cagna making it 4-1. With nine minutes left, Matias Silvestre headed in the fifth before Takuya Yokohama grabbed a late consolation for Urawa. In East Rutherford, New Jersey, Michael Owen nabbed the game-winner for Liverpool in the 85th minute to give the Premiership side a 2-1 win over AS Roma in the final match of the 2004 ChampionsWorld Series. A game of halves, the approximately 15,000 fans were treated to about 45 minutes of quality football in a fitting coda to the erratic preseason exhibition series that disappointed as often as it delighted.

Host China advanced to their first-ever Asian Cup final on Wednesday with a 4-3 penalty shootout win against Iran after tying 1-1 in regulation time, setting up a grudge match against Asian rivals Japan. With past champion Iran reduced to ten men for much of the match, Arie Haan’s team pressed the attack, but weren’t able to break the deadlock in extra time. Victory came when Chinese goalkeeper Liu Yunfei batted down Yahya Golmohammadi’s chipped penalty shot, setting off a delirious celebration among the more than 50,000 fans in Beijing’s Workers’ Stadium where the final will be played on Saturday.

‘We fought and we fought and we never gave up. Now we’ve got to be ready for Japan who are definitely the strongest team in the region,’ said midfielder Shao Jiayi, who scored China’s sole regulation time goal. Keiji Tamada scored twice in Japan’s come-from-behind 4-3 semifinal win over underdog Bahrain, a see-saw matchup that saw the lead change hands four times. Reduced to ten men for much of the match, Japan equalized three minutes into the second half off a corner by Takashi Fukunishi, then battled back again to level the score 3-3 just seconds before the end of regulation time with a bullet header from the near penalty spot by Yuji Nakazawa.

Tamada then nailed the winner three minutes into extra time, chipping the ball past advancing Bahraini goalkeeper Ali Saeed after receiving a long pass in front of the penalty area and dumping defender Hussain Baba. Playing before enthusiastic support from the 32,000 spectators in the eastern city of Jinan, Bahrain’s A’ala Hubail scored twice, and substitute Duaij Nasser added a third in the 85th minute. The tiny gulf state had appeared in only one previous Asian Cup and Croatian-born coach Srecko Juricic said his semi-professional players had been overcome by the Japanese pros’ experience and fitness.

‘We were at a great (numerical) disadvantage, but our players maintained formation and did their best,’ Japan’s Brazilian-born coach Zico said after the match. In the Beijing game, China opened scoring with Shao’s 19th minute strike. Collecting a pass from Li Jingyu, veteran Hao Haidong ran the ball down to the lefthand corner and shook off three defenders before cutting back up field and passing to Shao who made no mistake with his shot. Minutes later, Ha was brought down by a vicious tackle in front of the Iranian goal, but Lebanese referee Talaat Najim called no foul. Bleeding from the head, Hao had to be taken out of the stadium on a stretcher, with Manchester City defender Sun Jihai taking his place

Even better, BD lost to Japan 8-0 in 1993, while our worst is only 0-7. I am glowing with pride !
