Matildas pile pressure on Japanese goalkeeper

Westfield Matildas ‘keeper Lydia Williams says the shocking error by her Japanese counterpart in their last match could still weigh heavily on her in Sunday’s (AEST) World Cup quarter-final.

Ayumi Kaihori came up with a howler late in Japan’s 2-1 round of 16 win over the Netherlands, allowing a tame header to slip through her fingers and into the net.

The mistake has caught the attention of the Aussies, who are sure to test the nervy shot-stopper at every opportunity on Sunday.
