Thought this thread would be useful. Japan is one of the more harder nations to keep track of with regards to football footbage so post highlights, compilations, goals etc in this thread!

This match was weird because I'm obviously English, yet I was half rooting for Japan in it because a win would have meant far more for them than us.

Check out Yanagisawa and Okubo up front, lol. God, if Japan ever produce one decent striker they will be such a better side. They're like Portugal, a team full of midfielders.

outplayed by Japan :rolleyes:

no shape, Beckham and Gerrard continually coming into the middle to cuddle eachother with Fat Franky playing as a DM while Scott Parker sits on a beach in the Med somehere, WTF!!!! :fero:

no proper movement, just frenetic football, hot potato football with no plan, what has Sven been doing in Sardinia ? don't tell me, another load of games of 'pig in the middle' his only method he uses. :rolleyes:

no defensive organisation, well no cover from the midfield and the defence wandering around aimlessly with no co-ordianation, again does Sven do defensive drills other than 'all get behind the ball lads, and try to get a touch anyway and anyhow" ? :rolleyes:

complete shambles, France are playing Ukraine this weekend, our best bet is to offer to buy Dynamo Kiev a new striker if they cripple enough Frenchman in this game, if they take over five out we will buy a new midfielder as well. ;)
Beckham has got to get it into his head he is a right sided player for England, the only player to give it to right was Neville, we were so narrow it is ridiculous even in the first 25 mins.

i disagree i think France would have murdered us in the first 25 mins, we were not great at all, the Japanese just were a bit scared for some reason, as soon as they realised we were not all that was when the game became a true balance, the Japanese were a much better team than us, that we ran more early on shouldn't hide that fact. :rolleyes:

that passed and moved like a proper team, our play had no pattern and was just all off the cuff, our attacks were completely disorganised, even in the first 30 mins.

;)

thx

these words are important to me. Japanese players don't need to be intimidated just because their names aren't as famous as the opposition counterparts. they can stand up and play football as good as anyone. this is why i was pleased when okada targeted the semis.
