Japan won its last preparatory game ahead of the Under-20 World Cup on Monday, coming from behind to beat Honduras 3-2 in a friendly at Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa.

Koki Ogawa headed in the opener from a Daisuke Sakai corner in the 15th minute but slack defending saw Honduras level on a counter only three minutes later through Jorge Alvarez. Japan’s defense was then cut open by a through ball in the 32nd minute when Darixon Vuelto’s calm finish handed the visitors the lead.
