Celtic's Nakamura on target as Japan score three against Oman

Yuji Nakazawa, Yoshito Okubo and Shunsuke Nakamura were on target in rainy Yokohama, relieving the pressure on Japan coach Takeshi Okada following a 1-0 defeat by Bahrain in March.

Japan now have six points from three games in Group Two.

Defender Nakazawa powered home a header to give Japan the lead in the 10th minute before Okubo made it 2-0 with a clinical finish after 21 minutes.

Celtic midfielder Nakamura added a third goal three minutes into the second half drilling a right-footed shot into the bottom corner.
