For Japan only Yukihari, Miyashiro and Kojuki found the target in the tie breaker.

And with no extra-time in the tournament, the game went straight to the shootout.

England now travel to Margao to face the United States in the quarter-final, a team which will pose a different challenge than the ones the English have usurped till date, but England won't love anything more than to make the return journey to the mecca of Indian football later this month.

They will fancy their chances of reaching the last four against a U.S. side who only qualified for the knockout stages as one of four best third-placed teams but thrashed Paraguay 5-0 in the last-16 thanks to a hat-trick from George Weah's son, Timothy.

Nifty breaks 10200, Sensex falls 100 points over Axis bank disappointment
At 12:20 PM, the S&P BSE Sensex is trading at 32,483, down by 125 points, while NSE Nifty is trading at 10,183 down by 51 points. In the Sensex kitty, Cipla emerged as the top gainer by climbing 4.09 per cent, followed by Bharti Airtel by 2.86 per cent.

For this clash, Japan made two changes from the France game, with skipper Shimpei Fukuoaka, and Toichi Suzuki in for Kohei Okuno and Seiya Baba. In fact, had Brewster hit the target from Foden's defence-splitting pass in the 27th minute, England could have taken complete control of the narrative. England continued their goal search even as Rhian Brewster and Angel Gomes missed back-to-back chances.

In the fourth minute, Japan had the first attempt at the goal when Soichiro Kozuki's right footed shot from the left side of the box was blocked by Curtis Anderson.

The brilliant Tashan Oakley-Boothe was also taken out soon after with Morgan Gibbs White coming on for the midfielder.

Anderson saved Japan's third penalty in a technically proficient shootout before stepping up himself to put England on the verge of victory by scoring from the spot. Callum Hudson-Odoi, playing on the left wing, tried his best but the Japanese side-backs were alert to negotiate the crosses.
