After their defeat against DPR Korea (0-1), Japan clinched their third win of the competition by beating Haiti at Châteaurenard for the Matchday 4 this Wednesday (3-0). Thanks to Maho Hirosawa, Haruka Osawa and Sara Ito, the Futoshi Ikeda's side stays third of the tournament and still can dream about winning the title, as they are only one point behind France and DPR Korea.
As they did since the beggining of the Sud Ladies Cup, Haiti showed a superb state of mind and did a good performance, making Japan suffer. But it was not enough to get a result. Gerardo Contrera's squad stays fourth of the competition.
