FIFA U-17 WC: Japan, DPR Korea Stalemate
Jun 22, 2011 09:55:35 PM

Japan held France 1-1 in the FIFA U-17 World Cup while Asian champions DPR Korea also played a 1-1 draw with the Netherlands on Tuesday.

After a few half chances at both ends, the French grabbed the lead six minutes before the half hour mark. Abdallah Yaisien controlled the ball well and fired a looping shot over the head of the out-of-position Japanese Kosuke Nakamura goalkeeper, who could do nothing to keep it out.

Japan, who defeated Jamaica 1-0 in their opening match, equalised only four minutes after the restart with Hideki Ishige slotting home from the spot after himself being sandwiched between two French defenders in the area.

The Asians should have added another goal in the 65th minute, but Ishige could only guide his effort from 12 yards wide of the post after a nice pull-back from Ryuga Suzuki.

Both France and Japan are on four points with the former leading the table on better goal difference. Argentina, whom Japan will meet in their last game on June 24, are on three points.

The Koreans, who lost the opener 3-1 to Mexico, took the lead in the 48th minute when Jong Chol struck a fine overhead ball from the flank, which Dutch defender Karim Rekik headed in front of his own area, putting the ball on a platter for Kang Nam Gwon to drive home a shot into the bottom-right corner.

Danzell Gravenberch restored parity for the Netherlands in the 75th minute.

DPR Korea are languishing at the bottom of the group with just one point, five less than leaders Mexico and two adrift of Congo, whom they will meet on June 24. (AFC)
