    Soccer-Stand-in skipper Yoshida 'buzzing' after Japan win

    Japan defender Maya Yoshida said he was "buzzing" after leading his side to a 2-0 victory in Thursday's World Cup qualifier against United Arab Emirates in place of injured skipper Makoto Hasebe. Yuya Kubo and Yasuyuki Konno scored a goal in each half in Al Ain to keep the four-times Asian champions locked on 13 points with Group B leaders Saudi Arabia in Asian qualifying for the next year's World Cup finals. Yoshida said he felt a lot more pressure to deliver a result in the absence of Hasebe.
