Jon Gribbin and Dave Clarke goals enough to beat Japan in Hereford.
England 2-0 Japan

It was a case of deja vu at the Blind World Football Championship on Tuesday as Jon Gribbin and Dave Clarke both found the net again to lead England to victory over Japan.
Both strikers opened their Hereford 2010 goal accounts just 24 hours previously in the 2-1 win against South Korea and England's deadly duo were at it again in front of another packed crowd at thepoint4.
Tony Larkin made one change from the side that edged South Korea on Monday night with Lewis Skyers taking over in goal from Dan James.
Japanese playmaker Tomonari Kuroda ensured a nervy debut for Skyers and tested the England 'keeper with a couple of speedy raids into the Three Lions area but Skyers held firm.
It was Gribbin who broke the deadlock after 19 minutes when he skillfully turned the Japanese backline in the penalty area and smashed a left foot shot past Naoye Abe and into the roof of the net.
England continued to dominate in the second period with both Gribbin and Keryn Seal testing Abe. Seal received a yellow card for a late challenge on the Japanese keeper and will now miss the last group game against Columbia on Thursday.
Abe was also proving to be a thorn in the side of Dave Clarke with England's record goalscorer denied twice from the 8m mark while a third penalty shot narrowly missed the target.
However there was no stopping Clarke for a fourth time from the 8m mark and his 110th England goal rocketed past Abe and into the top left hand corner of the net with just over ten minutes to go.
Koruda was now playing a more deeper role for Japan, leaving Ochiai and Sasaki to test the England defence. A right foot Sasaki shot stretched Skyers to the limit but the Three Lions 'keeper managed to push the ball away for a corner.
Both Ochiai and Sasaki had chances from the 8m mark as England surpassed three fouls in the second period but their shots failed to trouble Skyers as time eventually ran down to leave England sitting just behind leaders Spain in Group A.
England striker Gribbin was delighted with another goal in an England shirt: "That's 12 goals in as many appearances for me now and I'm really pleased. To score again and hear the roar of the crowd is an amazing experience.
"It took me a while to settle into the tournament but I'm finding my feet now I think.
"There's a good mix of sides here at Hereford. We've got professional, semi-pro and amateurs and they all bring something different to the tournament.
"We've got two great wins now after losing to Spain and we can now look forward to our last group game against Colombia."
