Japan leads Denmark 2-0 after 30 minutes

Posted: Updated:

RUSTENBURG, South Africa (AP) — Japan scored from two free kicks to take a 2-0 over Denmark after 30 minutes of their Group E decider in the World Cup on Thursday.

Keisuke Honda's shot went over the wall and dipped to the left past a hesitant Denmark goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen in the 17th minute. Yasuhito Endo then curled a free kick around the wall and inside the right post in the 30th.

Japan needs only a draw to get through to the next round, while Denmark needs to win.

Denmark had an opportunity in the third minute when forward Jon Dahl Tomasson squared a pass to Simon Poulsen in front of goal, but the left back's effort went over the bar.
