Our young Nadeshiko finished two games. Here, I can point out of their weaknesses and strengths. Unfortunately, there is no spiritual mainstay such as Sawa or Miyama. But they can play at any position with high adaptability in the game. Hold out ! young Nadeshiko !

Congratulations to both Japan and New Zealand teams, great game, good result for both (nothing even similar to the 9-0 Korean-Argentina...)

A very gutsy effort by the young ferns to grab a point against the favourite Japanese team.
