His eligibility remains in Group B Japan A complete measure of all things: In the sixth game, Samurai Blue achieved its sixth win and is already 24:0 goals. They were followed by a 0-5 defeat of Syria in Hiroshima. After Ueda's opening goal (13th), Freiburg's Don quickly added the hosts' second goal (19th).

Mass was claimed after 21 minutes as Kruma also scored an unlucky own goal shortly after. After the break, Soma added to the score with a penalty (73') and ex-Liverpool player Minamino equalized with an assist from Stuttgart's Ito (85').

PSG professional Lee restores South Korea

Thailand may have pipped the Chinese to second place, but despite two late goals, they managed to win 3-1 at home against “only” bottom team Singapore. Thailand and China both had eight points and 9:9 goals – but the Chinese won the head-to-head (win and draw). A dramatic final act.

Palestine has no chance in Perth

The Socceroos, like Japan, made it clear in Group I: they won their own game against rivals Palestine. Australia A deserved 5-0 in Perth. Striker Yengi especially won the hearts of the fans, as the 25-year-old striker of Portsmouth FC scored in his third international match in a row – this time even twice – (four goals in eight appearances).

Yengi converted a penalty kick in the 5th minute of the game to take a 3-0 lead just before the break (41'). In between, Taggart scored the second after a one-two with Boyle (26'). All three players were involved in the 4-0 win: Boyle scored into an empty net following the work of Yengi and Taggart (53').

The 5-0 final score was Bayern debutant Irangunda's second international on home soil.
