Japan defeats Cameroon 1-0 on Goal by Honda

Keisuke Honda scored the only goal as Japan beat Cameroon 1-0 in Group E of soccer’s World Cup in Bloemfontein, South Africa, today.

Honda’s close-range effort after 39 minutes gives Japan, playing in its fourth straight World Cup, an opening-match victory for a first time. Cameroon had never lost its opener.

Both teams are aiming to progress beyond the group stage for a second time, with Cameroon reaching the quarterfinals in 1990 and Japan making the round of 16 in 2002.

Earlier, the Netherlands beat Denmark 2-0 in the same group. Defending champion Italy plays Paraguay in Group F later today.

Honda received a cross from the right by Daisuke Matsui at the far post and struck the ball past goalkeeper Hamidou Souleymanou to secure Japan’s win. The country’s only previous World Cup victories came when it was co-host with South Korea eight years ago.
