Japan obtained its pass for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar thanks to the victory of the Japanese team in Sydney (0-2) with two goals at the last minute by Kaoru Mitoma, forward of the revelation of Belgian football, Royale Union Saint-Gilloise. Likewise, the other country that got its ticket to the World Cup with the victory of the ‘Blue Samurai’ was Saudi Arabia.

The Japanese will play their seventh consecutive World Cup after taking the three points against the ‘Socceroos’ in the last breath, who needed to win to maintain their qualifying options for the last day, but fell at the Accor Stadium in Sydney by two goals from Kaoru Mitoma in minutes 89 and 94.

A cross shot after Miki Yamane’s death pass, at 89 minutes, and a low shot from the striker himself, after a brilliant personal action, which Real Sociedad goalkeeper Matt Ryan could not hold, give Japan joy .

In addition, the victory provisionally placed Japan as the leader with 21 points in Group B and also caused Saudi Arabia, which is with 19, to qualify automatically without needing to score already in its visit to China and join the host as Asian representatives, Iran and South Korea. The ‘Green Falcons’ will repeat their presence after Russia 2018 in what will be their sixth World Cup participation.

Now, Australia will have to play its presence in the World Cup in a tie against the third in group A, which at the moment is the United Arab Emirates, and then in the intercontinental playoff to fifth in Conmebol.
