Mana Iwabuchi and international debutant Yuzuho Shiokoshi each netted a brace Thursday as the Japanese women’s national team thrashed Ukraine 8-0 in a warmup for this summer’s Tokyo Olympics.

Shiokoshi opened the scoring for Asako Takakura’s side in the fifth minute of the friendly at Edion Stadium Hiroshima, netting from the middle of the area after Yuika Sugasawa stepped over a ball from Iwabuchi.
