It took until five minutes from the end of extra-time before there was a goal in the Japan v Spain Olympic Games semi-final football match, but when it arrived it was well worth waiting for.
Both teams were clearly tiring and no doubt had one eye on a potential penalty shoot-out, however, Real Madrid star, Asensio, managed to evade his marker for long enough to be able to send a magnificent curling shot past the outstretched arm of the Japan keeper to send Spain into the final against Brazil.
Japan 0-1 Spain | GOAL! Asensio ?
