Hinata Miyazawa had never been prolific for club or country before this year's Women's World Cup — now she is the tournament's leading scorer and spearheading Japan's surprising title charge.

The 23-year-old already has five goals in four matches and has Sweden in her sights in Friday's quarterfinal in Auckland.

"I honestly didn't think I could score this much," Miyazawa told reporters after her ice-cold finish in the 81st minute polished off Norway in the last 16.
