Japan failed to take advantage of the Greeks being reduced to 10 men from the 38th minute when captain Konstantinos Katsouranis was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Greece play Ivory Coast, who are on three points, in their final match while Japan tackle Colombia, who have a perfect six points.
