Japan close to beat Poland

Poland throw their chances away in the match against Russia on Monday. Tuesday they met Japan that still had zero points, and Japan saw a chance in the match against Poland to take their first points.
And, how close they got. With a two goals lead to halftime, and an arena that tried to lift they forward, they had every opportunity to get their first points.
But, with too many bad decisions and balls thrown away, they had to see Poland win by one goal in the end.
