Japan remain in first place but France, Australia, Spain and Colombia are all making upward moves
Futoshi Ikeda’s side continue to look the most in-form team in the competition. After a 3-1 win against Norway in the last 16 they progressed comfortably with their 100% win rate intact. Hinata Miyazawa starred once again and remains top scorer with five goals, equalling Homare Sawa’s Golden Boot-winning total in 2011, when Japan won the World Cup.
