They are a very tough side to break down, strong defense and very fit. Wouldn't expect an easy game for anyone playing them now, but Paraguay could just knock them out quickly.
A well deserved Japanese win and advancement but I don't think the Japanese team looked all that strong except for Honda. He did make Thomasson in the other end look even more laughable, as if that was possible. Ironically Thomasson tied for most all-time goals by a Danish player during this atrocious performance--and it seems he doesn't even have the good taste and take this opportunity to quit the national team
The first goal was a nice kick but Sørensen should have picked it any day and by the second goal he should have learned his lesson. The Danish penalty was more like a yellow card for Agger. I wish Honda had scored the superfluous last goal himself.
The Japanese team have a lot of spirit, I just hope they have some energy left for the 1/8s and the harder teams. I'll certainly root for them and bet against them
Go Japan! onnanohito tachi wa nani o kite imasu ka?
