A Japanese man has committed suicide because of his country's failure to qualify for the 2006 World Cup 1/8 finals.

The 60-year-old man was found hanged in his home by his wife. She claimed that her husband had sunk into a deep depression after Japan's side was eliminated in Germany.

The desperate fan stopped watching TV after the unfortunate clash of the "Blue Samurai"with Brazil on Thursday. The game ended 4:1 in Brazil's favor.
