After thrashing Zambia in their Women’s World Cup opener, Japan can qualify for the last 16 with the right combination of results on matchday two of Group C.

The 2011 tournament winners will go through with a game to spare if they beat Costa Rica, and Spain either win or draw against the Zambians later on Wednesday.

Having gone down 3-0 to Spain on matchday one, the Costa Ricans will be eliminated if they lose to Japan and the Spaniards beat Zambia.
