Photos: Fuller scores as Costa Rica stuns Japan

Japan squandered a chance to advance to the World Cup round of 16 after Keysher Fuller’s goal 10 minutes from time gave Costa Rica an upset 1-0 victory in a game in which they had barely any chances .

Samurai Blue failed to build on the momentum of their shock win over Germany and will regret missed opportunities after showing little creativity against a Costa Rican team they resolutely defended after their 7-0 loss to Spain last time out.

The result left Japan with a tough challenge to advance to the round of 16, with Spain their last Group E opponent on Thursday.
