fans showed an unusually high level of interest in a mid-morning qualifier from Asia today.

Officially it was Japan v but as far as most fans were concerned it was Kyogo v Rogic with both players vital to Ange Postecoglou’ prospects over the next couple of weeks.

Fir Park, Motherwell is the destination in mind for most fans with both players appearing to come through today’ match unscathed.

Rogic played for 81 minutes before being substituted by James Jeggo with the match tied at 1-1 but his club team-mate ensured that there was a late twist in the match.

Replacing Yuya Osako on the hour mark Kyogo was heavily involved in the winning goal where his presence forced Aziz Behich into an 85th minute own goal.

The win brought Japan back into contention to qualify, three points behind and Saudi Arabia although a win for Saudi against today will put them clear at the top of the group with four if the 10 qualifying matches played.
