Japan vs Holland was the first game of group C of the Madrid Olympic Games’ football tournament. It was played in the Camp Nou stadium (Barcelona).
Brian Kluivoort scored for Holland in the 21st minute. Japan made it even again in the 30th minute, with a goal scored by Jun Misugi, who was assisted by Tsubasa. Only seven minutes later Tsubasa’s header gave the lead to Japan, assisted by Ryo Ishizaki. And just before half-time Kojiro Hyuga scored thanks to Taro Misaki‘s goal pass.
At the beginning of the second half, Japan sentenced the match with a joint effort of Tsubasa and Misaki, who performed two consecutive twin shoots to put the ball in the back of the net. After this Japan controlled the game and made several substitutions, with Gakuto Igawa coming into the pitch in the 65th minute (replacing Ishizaki), Mamoru Izawa doing so in the 75th (replacing Shingo Aoi) and defender Yuji Soga replacing forward Shun Nitta in the 85th minute.
