Last-gasp goal secures Japan win
A goal in injury time from Yuki Nagasato earned Japan a dramatic 1-0 victory over Argentina at the Women's World Cup.

A draw would have piled the pressure on Hiroshi Ohashi's side and boosted England's qualification hopes.

The Group A game had looked destined to finish goalless before keeper Romina Ferro made a hash of an angled drive from Yukari Kinga.

Striker Nagasato was in the right place to fire in the rebound.

The late goal comes three days after Japan scored with the final kick of the game to draw 2-2 with England.

The win effectively ends the qualification hopes of Argentina, who lost their first game 11-0 to Germany.
