Twitter was for full of praise for Japan following their sensational 28-21 defeat of Scotland in Yokohama.


The Brave Blossoms secured their place in the World Cup quarter finals in style, delivering a high-intensity performance and scoring four tries against Scotland.

It was the second Tier 1 scalp Japan have taken in the tournament, following their second round defeat of Ireland.

The result saw Japan top Pool A and sets them up for a quarter-final meeting with South-Africa, who they famously beat at the 2015 World Cup, in Tokyo next Sunday.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to one of the most entertaining games of the tournament so far.
