Japan bounced back with a 2-1 victory over Scotland on Friday.

Strikers Mana Iwabuchi and Yuika Sugasawa were on the scoresheet as Japan got their women's World Cup campaign back on track with a 2-1 victory over Scotland in Rennes on Friday.

Japan, champions in 2011 and finalists four years ago, were coming off a uninspiring goalless draw with lowly-ranked Argentina in their opener but looked much sharper in the attacking third against Scotland.

They got a breakthrough when striker Iwabuchi controlled a poor headed clearance from Scotland captain Rachel Corsie...

England rode a trio of first-half goals to a 3-0 victory over Japan to win the SheBelieves Cup on Tuesday at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

England knew going in that a win against Japan was all they'd need to take home top spot in the exhibition tournament after having beaten Brazil 2-1 and drawn 2-2 with the U.S.
