The last round of the Japan was able to go through if they won or tied the match with Oman.s in the Season 33,
However, if they had lost the game and Malaysia had defeated Qatar, everything would have depended on goal difference.
They were in a difficult position.
The match against Oman was boring, it was clearly a dull game.
Oman lacked motivation since they already had no possibility to pass thes, on the other hand, Japan played totally defensively and avoided risks completely to aim at a draw.
Therefore, it wasn’t interesting, but anyway Japan kept a clean sheet and tied the game successfully.
