Kyogo Furuhashi was called upon from the bench as Japan faced Australia in the World Cup Qualifiers. The Celtic striker came on for Y Osako around the hour mark and was involved with the 85th-minute winner as Aziz Behich couldn’t clear a net bound effort under pressure from Kyogo.
Kyogo’s Celtic colleague Tom Rogic played 80 minutes before being subbed as Australia looked to consolidate their point towards progression. Rogic was replaced by James Jeggo and was forced to watch from the sidelines as the home side secured a win with just five minutes remaining.
Celtic will hope that both players can return from their travel unencumbered by injuries, allowing them to take their place in the starting XI on Saturday, for Celtic’s game against Motherwell.
