TWEETS: Twitter begrudges Scotland their win over Japan

Japan transfixed the sporting world when they defeated the mighty Springboks on Saturday evening.

One of the greatest underdog stories ever had fans all over the world leaping onto the Brave Blossoms bandwagon.

Yesterday, Life Style Sports reported they had sold out of Japanese Rugby World Cup jerseys.

This afternoon the Japanese took on Scotland in their second pool game, and Tweeters everywhere were ready and waiting to support them.

Unfortunately Scotland took an early lead, but everyone reassured themselves it was just a blip.

And to be fair, although they never took the lead the Japanese frequently looked the better team in the first-half.

But then the wheels came off, with Scotland cruising to victory in the second-half.

There were dark mutterings about the scheduling, with Japan playing for the second time in five days while Scotland were fresh as daisies.

Scottish fans were naturally delighted…..

….with everyone else full of sympathy for the Japanese fans who had been brought so abruptly back to reality.

Never mind, still two pool games to go. You can do it Japan.
