Nigeria 2, Japan 1

Nigeria took a 2-0 lead, but Japan fought back to score late. It wasn't enough for the Japanese though, who are all but mathematically eliminated after a pair of losses.

It started pouring around the 75th minute and didn't let up until the 90th. It seems to have let up a bit now though, so hopefully it will hold out for the duration of the USA-Netherlands game, which kicks off in about 45 minutes.

Nigeria's win means that the USA can't win the group tonight, but they can assure themselves a place in the quarterfinals with a win.
