Japan came from a goal behind to beat Belgium 3-2 in an international friendly at the Koning Boudewijn stadion on Tuesday night.
The home side certainly started the brighter of the two teams and took the lead in the 15th minute through a superb finish by Kevin Mirallas, 1-0.
Japan, though, quickly found their footing in the match and began creating chances of their own.
Belgium seemed to have no answer for the visitors attacking flair and were mere spectators for the rest of the half.
Japan finally made their pressure tell in the 37th minute when Yoichiro Kakitani found the equaliser with a well-placed effort, 1-1.
Japan continued to press forward, but Belgium were able to keep them at bay for the remainder of the opening stanza.
The second 45 saw Japan continue where they left off and they soon took the lead, Keisuke Honda finding their second goal eight minutes after the restart, 2-1.
Ten minutes later and Japan doubled their lead after Shinji Okazaki produced a clinical finish to make it 3-1.
Belgium tried to find their way back into the game, but they were met by some stubborn Japanese defence.
The home side, though, did manage to find a consolation goal through Toby Alderweireld in the 79th minute, but it did not change the complexion of the game as Japan ran out 3-2 winners on the night.
