Japan have stunned Ireland at the Rugby World Cup.

The hosts came from behind to record a famous 19-12 Pool A victory in Shizuoka.

Kenki Fukuoka scored in the second half as Japan got the better of the world number two side, who led 12-9 at halftime.

The result now makes it extremely tricky for Ireland to progress to the next round of the tournament.
