Our strong point was our finishing, and we also pressed well and controlled the tempo of the game. I thought our keeper had a great match and the team worked really well as a whole. We knew Japan were a tough proposition because they are a quick and dynamic side, but we were lucky enough to score first and their heads went down when we made it 3-0. The second half was a little bit of a formality and we handled the situation extremely well.
Jorge Vilda, Spain coach
