Hosts Malaysia posted their third successive victory in the Asian Champions Trophy when they outplayed Japan 7-2 to stay on top of the round-robin league standings with a maximum nine points.
Star striker Faizal Saari scored two goals to lead the Malaysian charge, while five others made an entry in the scoresheet.
Japan denied the dominant Malaysian strikers a goal until the 23rd minute when Niman Nik Rosemi opened the account with a field goal.
Rashid Baharom, Nabil Noor, Firhan Ashari and Fitri Saari were the other scorers for Malaysia, who had defeated defending champions Pakistan 4-2 and China 5-1 in earlier matches.
Japan, who have lost all their three matches, got two late consolation goals from Kenji Kitazato and Kentaro Fukuda.
