Mexico claimed the bronze medal at the Olympics after holding off a late rally from Japan to beat the hosts 3-1 at Saitama Stadium.

Goals from Sebastian Cordova, Johan Vasquez and Alexis Vega were enough to make it a pair of podium finishes in the last three tournaments for El Tri, as they left the Samurai Blue with a mountain to climb despite Kaoru Mitoma's late response.

Japan's wait for a medal in the men's tournament, meanwhile, will continue for another Olympiad.
