GRAZ (Austria) (AFP) Two own goals saved England from embarrassment in their final World Cup warm-up match as they came from behind to beat Japan 2-1 here on Sunday. But the unconvincing victory threw up as many questions as answers for manager Fabio Capello just 48 hours before he must cut his squad for South Africa from 30 to 23. The unfortunate Yuji Nakazawa and Marcus 'Tulio Tanaka, who put his side ahead after six minutes, both turned the ball into their own net in the second half - just when it looked as though Japan were heading for the first victory over England in their history. Capello admitted that the first-half had left him cold. The first-half we were too slow, and allowed them to outpace us and create more than we did, said the Italian, who admitted he knew the final 23 but would not comment on that or about his own future after the World Cup. In the second we had more pace and more creativity and gave the Japanese more of a match and stopped them from playing. Although Capello can be pleased with the result there is no hiding the fact that his experimental side under-performed for large sections of the match and needed five second-half substitutions to bring them to life. At times until then England were outplayed by a Japan side who went into the friendly fixture low on confidence following three defeats in four games and with manager Takeshi Okada said to be under intense pressure. Okadas side were ahead after only six minutes when Glen Johnson lost his man from a Yasuhito Endo corner and Tulio swept home. The Japanese visibly grew in confidence after that, shaking off memories of recent defeats, including a 2-0 home reverse against South Korea earlier in the week, to dominate possession in areas that England would normally expect to call their own. The closest Capellos side came to an equaliser was when Wayne Rooney cleverly found Aaron Lennon inside the area, only for the Tottenham wingers shot to be well saved by Eiji Kawashima. But in truth Japan were comfortable for most of the opening 45 minutes, even threatening a second when Rio Ferdinand slipped and Shinji Okazaki fired over the bar when well placed to score. It was no surprise when Capello made five changes at half-time, bringing on Joe Cole, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Jamie Carragher, Joe Hart and Steven Gerrard coming on. The changes, with Cole playing behind Rooney in a 4-5-1 formation, reaped almost immediate dividends when Frank Lampard earned England a penalty as Honda foolishly handled the Englishmans free-kick. But Lampards 55th minute effort from the spot was superbly saved by Kawashima, sparking real celebration in the Japan side and leaving Capello with yet another headache. Lampard has enjoyed an outstanding season for Chelsea, scoring 27 goals in all competitions, but he has now missed two penalties in a row, having also shot wide in the FA Cup Final. Japan showed tenacity and energy in all positions, with substitute Daiki Iwamasa coming close to doubling their lead with an excellent left-foot shot that was well saved by Hart after 66 minutes. Only Rooney kept England going but Kawashima enjoyed an excellent day, saving one long-range effort comfortably from the Manchester United man and then acrobatically tipping another curling effort over the bar. However, just when it seemed the Japanese were set to celebrate a landmark victory they finally cracked, Joe Coles near-post cross headed into his own net after 71 minutes by the unfortunate Tanaka. Then when Joe Cole fed Ashley Cole down the left 10 minutes later the Chelsea left-backs cross was turned into his own net by a sliding Nakazawa, sealing Japans fate. Even then there was time for Hart to save well from Makoto Hasebe and for Ujki Abe to head against the crossbar. France fail to fire in draw with Tunisia Frances preparations for the World Cup suffered a reality check here on Sunday when the 2006 finalists had to come from behind to snatch a 1-1 draw against non-South Africa-bound Tunisia. France turned up in Rades on the back of Wednesdays confidence-boosting 2-1 win over Costa Rica in Lens. As at Lens Frances top scorer Thierry Henry found himself on the bench with manager Raymond Domenech preferring to start Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka. Hugo Lloris was back in goal after having ceded his place to Steve Mandanda who failed to advertise his claims against Costa Rica. The rest of the side was the same as Domenech stuck with his new 4-3-3 formation. The match was a personal milestone for Domenech, who drew level with former manager Michel Hidalgos record of 75 matches in charge of the national side. The 58-year-old Domenech, who succeeded Jacques Santini after Euro 2004, is stepping down to be replaced by Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc after the World Cup. France failed to assert as they had done last Wednesday and were behind by as early as the sixth minute when lax defending resulted in Isaam Jemaa tapping in past Lloris. Tunisia had the French backline on the rack two minutes later when Ben Khalfallah charged goalbound unchallenged down the centre in a one-on-one with Lloris but the danger petered out after he elected to pass to his left with the move petering out. France, notably with a searing shot from Franck Ribery which skimmed just wide of the near post, had their chances but went into the break trailing. Domenech tinkered with his second half cast list, introducing Henry on the left and debutant Marc Planus for Ribery and Eric Abidal. France got their much sought after leveller in the 62nd minute when William Gallas headed in Yoann Gourcuffs floating 30m freekick from close range, a welcome fillip for central defender Gallas who is back in World Cup contention after a calf injury. The Arsenal back and Gourcuff were two of the few bright points of Frances performance. France have one remaining warm-up, against China in Reunion on Friday, before their World Cup campaign opens on June 11 against Uruguay.
