Japan beat Honduras in nine-goal thriller

RIFU, Japan, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Japan fought back from two goals down three times to beat Honduras 5-4 at home in a pulsating friendly on Wednesday.

Striker Atsushi Yanagisawa scored twice in the second half and substitute Mitsuo Ogasawara snatched a 79th-minute winner as Japan overcame a Wilmer Velasquez hat-trick in Miyagi.

'It was like two boxers sparring,' said Japan's Brazilian coach Zico. 'We won but there were some bad mistakes. At least we got to try out lots of different things so that was a plus.'

The Japan Football Association allowed the game to go ahead as scheduled despite the threat of a deadly typhoon that has brought destruction to large parts of Japan.
