The second qualifier saw Japan being placed in Group F where they needed to play Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and Myanmar. Japan successfully won all of their 8 games whilst scoring 46 goals and only conceding twice. Resulting in an astounding goal difference of 44 - an astronomical figure considering they only played 8 games.
