(Video) Japan 0-0 Greece: Highlights And Report From World Cup Group C

Posted by

Watch Japan and Greece fight out a frustrating goalless draw in Natal as both sides keep their hopes of qualification alive.

Japan and Greece both kept their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup knock-out stages, but know that only victory will be good enough if they are to extend their respective stays in the tournament.

This 0-0 draw was reminiscent of the disappointing match between Iran and Nigeria last week, with neither team doing enough to win the game.

Greece are likely to be the happier side after they saw PAOK midfielder Kostas Katsouranis sent off in the first-half for two bookable offences, twice bringing down Japan players as the Samurai blue looked to break.

The Japanese were disappointing, however, and rarely looked likely to exploit the space afforded to them by the additional man, with the likes of creators Shinji Kagawa and Keisuke Honda particularly underwhelming.

Watch some of the few highlights from the match below:
