Scotland might see their world cup dreams cut short after upsetting loss against Japan on Friday.

After their first loss against England, Scotland suffered another upsetting defeat against Japan on Friday after Mana Iwabuchi's goal and Yuika Sugasawa's penalty in the first half.

Scotland had two penalty opportunities — for a foul on Erin Cuthbert and a handball by Risa Shimizu — turned down by VAR.

The defeat left Scotland at the bottom of the group but they could still achieve third place in the group by beating Argentina, which may yet be enough to see them go through to the knockout stages.
