World Cup 2010 - Japan 1, Cameroon 0: Keisuke Honda Goal Puts Japan Up In First Half

Skilled work on the right wing from Daisuke Matsui led to a cross that found Keisuka Honda alone at the far post, putting Japan up 1-0 over Cameroon in the 38th minute.

Matsui, in possession on the right, cut back toward the middle before floating a left-footed cross into the area. A series of Cameroon defender jumped-at and missed the cross, leaving the pass to fall at the feet of an unmarked Honda.

The CSKA Moscow star had an easy finish for his fifth career goal and Japan’s 1-0 lead.
