Japan beat El Salvador thanks to two goals from Kensuke Nagai.

Kensuke Nagai scored his first goals for Japan with a brace in a 2-0 win over El Salvador in Miyagi on Sunday.

The 30-year-old, who has had a less than prolific career in the J.League, was called up for only his seventh cap by coach Hajime Moriyasu following an impressive run with table-topping FC Tokyo.

Nagai took both his goals with aplomb; scoring the first by cutting inside to send two El Salvador players sliding on the wet turf before a neat finish and then sweeping home Genki Haraguchi's cross...

The match will conjure sad pictures of what might have been this season for both Victory...

Shoya Nakajima came off the bench to score the only goal in a 1-0 victory for Japan over Bolivia in an international friendly in Kobe on Tuesday.

The diminutive forward, who became the most expensive Japanese player when he moved to Al-Duhail in January, scored the winner in the 76th minute having come off the bench 15 minutes earlier.

Japan coach Hajime Moriyasu made a swathe of changes after his side's loss in another friendly against South American opposition last Friday, when they played Colombia,...
