GENKI Haraguchi smashed home a con­tro­ver­sial penalty yes­ter­day as Ja­pan scraped a 1-0 win over Oman in Abu Dhabi to book its place in the last 16 of the Asian Cup.

Haraguchi had ap­peared to go down eas­ily un­der min­i­mal con­tact from Oman cap­tain Ahmed Al-Ma­hai­jri.

Ear­lier, Al­moez Ali plun­dered four goals for Qatar as the 2022 World Cup host hit North Ko­rea for six to progress from Group E.
