Shinji on target

Elsewhere in the group on Tuesday, Brazil beat a Mexico team containing Reds striker Javier Hernandez 2-0 in Fortaleza. New Barcelona signing Neymar opened the scoring with a brilliant volley on nine minutes. He was involved for Brazil's second, too, when he skipped into the box, past two defenders and squared for former Manchester City forward Jo to tap home in injury-time.

Mexico and Japan meet each other in Belo Horizonte on Saturday at 20:00 BST in what's effectively a Group A third-place decider.
