Muto helps Japan reach Asian Cup quarter-finals

Written by Dan King

Yoshinori Muto helped Japan reach the quarter-finals of the Asian Cup on Monday.

The Newcastle forward - who scored in Thursday's 2-1 win over Uzbekistan - started for his country as they beat Saudi Arabia at the Sharjah Stadium.

Takehiro Tomiyasu got the only goal of the game in the 20th minute. Muto was booked and was substituted in stoppage time.

The Samurai Blue will now take on surprise package Vietnam at the Al Maktoum Stadium in the last eight.
