After looking at the stats, it seems japan should have win the game right??? WRONG!!!! let me explain why. Korea and japan played two contrasting style of soccer. For example, let's look at the ball possession; japan was all about short, safe passing which of course equates to higher percentage ball possession, on the other, hand Korea was looking for long passes to their strikers. Secondly, number of shots, japan 37!! japan was just launching wild mid and long range shots from all over the field. Korea was little more selective in their shots.
