Spain vs. Japan highlights: Japan wins Group C via 4-0 win over Spain


Japan continued its 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign with its final Group C match against Spain at Wellington Regional Stadium in Wellington on Monnday (on FS1 and the FOX Sports app).

Both teams entered with two wins and thus made this match one to decide the winner of Group C. Surprisingly, one team had no issues, but it was not the betting favorite, as Japan raced out to a three-goal lead right before halftime. That would be all Japan needed and eventually led to a 4-0 win.

Hinata Miyazawa scored the first goal for Japan and then collected her second right before the end of the first half. The impressive performance set Japan up to clash with Norway, which is coming off a decisive win of its own, in the Knockout Stage.
