Garcia was sent off in the second half after a terrible play that injured both Tachibana twins (Kazuo and Masao). Mexico’s goalkeeper, Ricardo Espadas, scored the first goal of the match in the 80th minute. Japan managed to reverse the score in overtime, with goals by Aoi and Hyuga (assisted by Tsubasa).
