If you’ve been following World Cup 2018, you’ve probably seen the historic win of Japan against Colombia with a score of 2-1. It is a historic win because it is said to be the first time an Asian country has defeated a South American country in World Cup. The previous record showed 14 losses and 3 draws.
Due to this win, the streets of Japan, especially the often-busy crosswalk in Shibuya, was packed with people celebrating the Blue Samurais.

The win isn’t only historic, but it also felt like it came out from an anime show. For most of the game, the two teams were tied at 1-1. It was only until the last minutes when Yuya Osako delivered an emphatic header to give Japan the win.

Rough translation: The public viewing event that Nagashima Akihiro and Hirase Tomoyuki appeared yesterday ended in a great success due to the victory of the Japanese delegation. Shibuya, where our office is located, was also very exciting last night!
And let’s not forget how the fans in the stadium celebrated – by cleaning up.
It’s a real proud moment right here for Japan! Congratulations!
