Gamba Boys in the U20 World Cup Help Reach the Last 16!

next
Gamba Osaka's Ritsu Doan was instrumental in Japan's U20 World Cup squad reaching the knockout stages, his two goals giving Japan a 2-2 draw to ensure progression.

Doan's first saw his outstretched boot get a touch on an inswinging cross to bring the team back to 2-1 after going down to early goals against Italy. Japan were down 2-0 within seven minutes of kick off before taking control of the match and could have easily won the tie in the end, having Italy on the ropes for much of the 2nd half in particular.

Mizuki Ichimaru and Ryo Hatsuse played the full 90 minutes, also, while Akito Takagi was preparing to come on in the dying minutes but time ran out as Italy passed the ball around at the back and waited out the draw, concerned with what Japan would do if they continued the onslaught!

Next up, team manager Atsushi Uchiyama will see his squad take on Venezuela, at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium, on Tuesday, May 30.
