Thanks to this success, the Japanese finished top of Group C on Saturday, thanks to a better goal difference than Spain.

Difficult learning. For the first World Cup match in their history, the Zambians were withered by Japan (5-0), on Saturday July 22, at the Hamilton Waikato Stadium. The Japanese have long stumbled over the opposing defense, even having two goals disallowed for offside. But the sentence fell just before the break for the third of the last CAN, when full-back Hinata Miyawaza opened the scoring. She also offered herself a brace in the second half.

The other goals of the match were scored by Mina Tanaka, Jun Endo and Riko Ueki. She the latter had to try twice to score a penalty after extra time after a foul by goalkeeper Caterina Musonda, who was immediately ruled out. Japan thus takes first place in Group C ahead of Spain, who dominated Costa Rica on Friday with a minor score (3-0).
