Had no chance with any of the goals and was largely let down by his defence, who didn't award him much protection. Pulled off a couple of decent saves.
Stupidly dived in and took down Adrian Ramos inside the box when the Colmbian was actually moving out of the danger area. Struggled with the movement of the attackers.
Started the match well and looked to stretch the Colombian defence with width down the left-hand side, but crosses into the box were not consistently good enough to pose a real threat to the defence.
Was useful as an extra winger down the right-hand side and gave his team-mates an outlet. Had a crack at goal from 30 yards that went just wide of the post.
Was probably more effective in the opposition area than at the back. Put himself about at set-pieces and won some aerial duels from deliveries into the box.
Anchored the midfield pretty well and recycled possession effectively at times in the first half. Drifted out of contention as the game went on as he looked exhausted.
Had plenty of opportunities to affect the game from set-pieces but was extremely hot and cold. Delivery was poor but did swing a free kick a yard wide of the post. Second half didn't improve and creativity wasn't there.
Put in a terrific block on a Jackson Martinez strike on the edge of the box and aimed to get in the faces of the opposition, but eventually looked completely fatigued as he was withdrawn in the second half.
Started on the left-hand side but could always be found drifting inside. Tested the keeper with a decent strike but mainly cut a frustrated figure as most of his passes and finishes didn't come off.
Was deployed slightly out of position down the right flank but could often be found drifting into the box, which paid dividends just before the break when he equalised with a terrific header into the corner.

Perhaps should have done better with the equalising goal in the first half as he got a hand to it but the attempt did have some power behind it. Commanded the area well.
Was always looking to break ahead and get involved in the attack and provided some width on the right. Did lose the runs of Nagatomo a few times, though.
Started the match well as he made some excellent blocks on the edge of the box but was extremely lucky not to be sent off as he threw an elbow right in the face of Okazaki.
Displayed a terrific engine on the left flank as he tirelessly patrolled the touchline both offensively and defensively. Was relentless in his pressing of the Japanese midfield.
Was impressive when he soaked up the pressure and provided a formidable barrier at the back. However, rashly left his position at times to give away needless free kicks in dangerous areas.
Provided a box-to-box performance. In defence he was always situated just in front of the back four but was instrumental in instigating counterattacks whenever he won the ball.
Attempted to fill the creative void left by the absence from the start of James but was guilty of forcing it in the final third. Attempted quite a few dribbles that didn't come off and was subbed at half-time
Was the more defensively minded of the midfield duo. Marshaled the area in front of the defence well and didn't allow too much room for Honda and Kagawa to operate.
Had a quiet first half in which his touch looked suspect. However, flourished after James came on and earned a brace with two terrific finishes.
Was the most selfless of the Colombia attackers as he put in a terrific shift in terms of working the channels. Just didn't manage to get on the scoresheet despite a couple of decent chances.
Was given a more advanced role than usual and prospered in his freedom as he was Colombian's most positive influence in the first half. Opened the scoring with a well-taken penalty.
