The Japanese national team took the lead in the 44th minute through Maeda after a tactical sentence played from a corner that hit the net, and by reviewing video technology, the goal was confirmed, and in the second half, Croatia players pressed hard in an attempt to snatch the equalizer in light of the Japanese players retreating backwards, and in the 55th minute Ivan Perisic was able to snatch a wonderful goal with a beautiful header, after an assist from Dejan Lovren
