Japan’s World Cup qualifying win over the host United Arab Emirates cost it a couple of injuries as midfielder Yasuyuki Konno and forward Yuya Osako headed to the hospital after touching down at Narita airport in Chiba Prefecture on Friday.

Konno, who scored the second goal in Thursday’s 2-0 victory in Al Ain, suffered a bruised left toe, the Japan Football Association said. Osako’s injury appears to be more serious, the Cologne striker having bruised his left leg from the knee on down.
