All-Japan took advantage of an undermanned Dolphins United squad and cruised to a 20-0 win in 62 minutes of play in their UFL FA League Cup tie at the Emperador Stadium in Taguig City.

Dolphins entered the pitch with only nine players, and Chichiro Noda immediately exploited the mismatch in terms of manpower by scoring four goals in a span of 13 minutes to put All-Japan on the board.

All-Japan then scored ten more goals in the rest of the first half to open a 14-0 cushion at halftime.

Needing to win by a 15-0 scoreline to enter the knockout phase, All-Japan got the needed goal just less than a minute to the second half.

Simon Kue dealt further damage to Dolphins as he struck All-Japan's 16th goal at the 49th minute as the injury bug struck two players of the already outnumbered Dolphins.

All-Japan added four more goals for the final tally as the match was called in the 62nd minute after a third Dolphin could not continue for the game.

FIFA Rules state that a match can be stopped if less than seven players remain on the field.
