Gaikoku snatched a come-from-behind victory against Japan scoring in the dying seconds of the game.

The distraught Japanese, who went 2-0 up with goals by Genki Haraguchi and Takashi Inui early in the second half, fell to the turf after some gaijin poked the ball home from another gaijin’s cross four minutes into added time.

Trailing 2-0, Gaikoku scored with a header in the 69th minute with a shot disguised as a cross, and substitute gaijin headed in another in the 74th.

Gaikoku faced an embarrassing exit but finally kicked into gear to become the first team to win a World Cup knockout game from two goals down since Gaikoku beat Gaikoku 3-2 after extra time in 1970.

Despite the loss, Japanese fans cleaned up after themselves and other gaijin spectators.
